    Well back home from the hospital with my new knee (this is my second knee
    repacement within the past 6 months. Just wanted to say thanks to all for your
    thoughts and kinds words during this time. It's actually 2 weeks since the surgery and I'm up and walking and doing well. I really didnt want this to be a place that we come to talk about our health problems but I really wanted to say thanks to all, it meant alot.

    I did take a few shots while there, the Doctor would not take a camera into the
    operation so your stuck with some odds and ends. It's good to be able to get around
    and get back into my old state. Take care all and see you around the forum.

    Yow. I'm not sure which is more disturbing - the pee bottle on the food tray or your stapled knee! Regardless, heal well, welcome back, etc. I hear the Cardinals need some help in the defensive backfield next season - you gonna be ready?

    Oh, Pete - ever the artist even when in recovery! I love that few of the IV bags hanging - really, truly, I do. I feel for you, but am very relieved to know you are on the mend, my good friend. :grouphug::friends: You have been missed.

    Glad you're back on your feet Pete. Bit hard to take photos while on crutches but I'm sure you'll manage something.
