    I feel comfortabe enough here and feel like I have some good efriends, if I may say that, that really care about how I am and visa versa. Having said that tomorrow Im off to get a total knee replacement on my left knee (had the other done this past Sept).

    I will be pretty inactive at least for the first 2 to 3 weeks, preoccupied with physical therapy and such. So Im saying Aloha, at least for now and I will see everyone in a few weeks.

    Now I will have my ipad with me to take a peak of whats happening, and to make sure Billn isnt causing trouble.

    Cheers all,
    Pete

    Pete, godspeed with your surgery and physical therapy! Please, please keep us up-to-date, when you feel the urge. Your presence will be greatly missed!

    Perhaps we'll be a good distraction and yes, you must keep an eye on BillN, as well.:wink:

    Thanks for letting everyone know because they'd start to wonder.:friends:

    Get well soon. With two new knees, I'm assuming you'll be faster and stronger ... that sounds good maybe I should sign up for some surgery :)

    All the best from Oz Pete! See if you can't smuggle one of those compacts in and keep us up to date with some photo-reportage.

    Pete,

    How are you doing? I noticed you were able to pop in and congratulate Vidar on his triumph on The WC - that's a good sign to me, if you're able to distract yourself from your post operative pain with a quick post.

    We're pulling for you and are hoping for a clandestine photo essay about physical therapy, Pete - handsome young trainers, and all that.:wink:

    Seriously, we're keeping you and your bionic knee in our thoughts. Let us know how you're doing when you can.:friends:
