Back to Walking and Cycling

Sunday, February 05, 2012

December 23, 2011, I had surgery on right knee. Just before Christmas, what was I thinking. I don't remember Christmas day because I was loading with pain medication. Our granddaughter beat on me all day trying to wake up grandpa.

Therapy started right after the New Year and my initial thoughts were that my knee/leg would be permanently stiff. Getting in and out of the car and riding were all most impossible.

Fast forward six week later, I starting to walk on my own. Today was the first day back in the pool and I'm starting to cycle again.

The leg is still a little stiff but a whole lot better. emoticon

    Hey, that's terrific progress!

    Sorry you had to go through all of that on a holiday, but it's barely six weeks later and you're walking, cycling, and in the pool. Well done!

    Go for it, Grandpa!

    Hey, did you hear about the new modern Grandfather? Unlike the old days when Grandpa rocked on the porch watching the world go by, nowadays Grandads are running marathons, climbing mountains, and creating bucket lists. In other words, Gramps is off his rocker! emoticon
