Oh me too! The whole reason I got on tonight as soon as I walked in was hoping he was home and had someone at least get on here and tell us how he is.
I do know though that I couldn't sit at my desk for several days after surgery so we may not hear from him for a while if he doesn't have a lap top or the right chair. I tried all sorts of chairs around the house and finally came up with the right pillow, cushion, chair combo so I could sit and type a bit.
I really miss late nights on this forum actually. But I will be back soon enough. For right now I am so over loaded with work trying to keep all my ducks in a row preparing to leave again for the next knee. It is crazy. Really considering the lotto angle.
Jim, can't wait to see your name pop up here.
Well, I'm a little late adding my two cents, but I'm thinking about you, Jim. We all know what you're going through now. Remember - this is the place where you can b**ch and moan all you want to and get lots of support. Let us know how you're doing.

JB, good to hear from you again. Remember this, the only goal for day 7 is to get to day 7. YOU MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Take your meds, rest and remember this a long trip, don't worry about who is ahead, just make it to the finish line.
You're doing fine, JB. One day at a time. We all progress differently but we have all progressed. You will, too. I didn't really get started in PT until my third week or so. I was at 0 fast because my doctor stressed how important that was. The other took more time for me, too. At 10 weeks I am around 115. So give yourself time and just be proud to be where you are and to have made it through the surgery and hospital stay. Before you know it you'll be at 6 weeks looking back. We're here for you. Enjoy the time healing. I have to go back to work full time Monday. Kind of wish I could go back a few weeks and have more time off!!
JB, believe it or not but in a few weeks you will have a very faded memory of day 7. You have had some major work done and it is going to take some time to get energy back to worry about ROM. Just do what the therapist says and rest. For me the beginning of the healing didn't even start until my staples were taken out. Make sure and ice it down frequently.
