Program Note

Yes, the newsletter is in the process of being converted into a blog, but no, that’s not the reason I haven’t written my usual plethora of articles on a wide variety of topics and sent a November newsletter.

I recently underwent joint-replacement surgery and was in the hospital for a few days. I’m still in the process of several weeks of recuperation and physical therapy, but I am starting to feel human again.

I’ve got some additional stuff in the works. So please check back.

    So, you had joint replacement surgery? Which one? Knee or hip? I just had my second knee replacement and it feels like I got my life back. I was pushing 60, feeling chairbound, watching my life slip away.

    I had the first replacement in ’96, and it was a real bitch. Pain, and then some more pain. Oh, and then for variety, a whole LOT of pain.

    I should have had both knees done at the same time but the doctor wouldn’t bite. Which is another way of saying I should have gone right back into the hospital for the other replacement surgery upon completing rehab for the initial surgery.

    Which of course I didn’t. I was a pussy. I didn’t see myself as able to deal with all that pain. Then Iraq happened. I started to see these stories about young brave Americans coming home minus limbs, and pushing themselves to master their prosthetics. I felt ashamed. I had no right to sit by because I couldn’t take a little pain.

    So I did it and wow! Was I ever surprised. This time it was so much easier. I went back to work after 3 weeks. It was astounding. So much less pain.

    I hope I’m not boring you with yet another hospital tale from a reader.

    Just want to say good luck with the therapy. – Jack Lavelle, Phoenix
