    What can I say. There are not two more different boy toys than a sports car and a truck...

    Bottom line - we are both happy with our choices.

    Take care

    Mike, glad to hear you're not worse for wear after the stair incident. Gotta watch out for those leaping gym bags! Looks like you got them figured out by scaring them with the lights.... :heehee:

    Hubby likes your new ride. In his words, Ooh, that's nasty!! (Said with lots of enthusiasm!) Congrats and enjoy!

    Hey Stargirl,

    Okay first thing to tell you is that I used to think that St Vincents was the best hospital in Sydney. However after my recent surgery at the Mater, I can tell you that you are going to the best hospital in Sydney.

    Have you been for a pre-op visit yet? Will you have a pre-op visit given that you are coming from a regional area? This visit helps greatly to answer all your questions and educate you on what to expect. If you have any specific questions about how the hospital works, please let me know and I will tell you what I experienced.

    Kind regards

    Mike

    hi my Angels and Hippies

    Just checking in. Its the last day of work for the year today for me. Great that I have made it in good shape. We have my extended family Christmas lunch tomorrow and a string of celebrations with family and friends planned. But most importantly for me, I have an intense fitness plan over the two weeks to raise the bar before my upcoming golfing holiday.

    Best wishes to everyone.

    Mike

    Hi Mike. You've been on my mind, because thanks to popular demand, we are using your post-op question list as a starting point to create a comprehensive list for the library. I will make sure you get credit for originating the list. :)

    Glad to hear you are ending the year on a high note. Keep it that way. :)

    Lovely to hear from you. I am pleased I could make a small contribution to the wonderful work of the Angels of Bonesmart.

    Hi Jaycey,

    Yes the car is wicked. I will never forget my Angels here on Bonesmart. I will try to pop in at some point during the NYE party to say hi.

    Cheers

    Mike
