“Just passing along some info I recieved from Mike's Wife today...
This is Stacy (Mike's wife). He asked me to email you to let you know that his surgery had gone well. He is back from Stanford now. He is in a rehabilitation hospital about 10 minutes from our house. Not able to move around very much yet. I think he is supposed be there for a couple of weeks.
“That's good news!”
“Great news. I can't recall, did he have a knee replacement or a hip? Either way, tough stuff. I hope this gets him mobile again.”
“Great. Looking for a quick recovery.”
“Knee replacement. Good luck Mike!”
“It was his knees wasn't it?
I hope he heals quickly and completely.”
“Great news, hope the recovery is speedy!”
“It was a knee replacement...they will only do one at a time...he has to have both replaced.”
“Great! Very happy for him...”
“tell him to conserve those pain pills. I have som Vic's & T3 leftovers. Maybe we could swap over the campfire someday?”
“He's been doing great and I'm sure he will continue on that track. Best thoughts with ya, Mike!”
“Hope you feel better soon Mike!”
“Get better Mike!”
“Mike!!! All the best. Our prayers are with you.”
“Hope things are going great! My thoughts are with you.”
“Just an FYI....
I spoke with Mike on the phone today...things are going well.
He just arrived back home today.
His left knee is still a source of pain....but the new right knee is much better and coming along nicely. So I think he is looking forward to the second surgery.
Mike said he would try to get online tomorrow or the next day.”
“Good deal, WW! Glad he's coming through well!”
“Thanks for the update.”
“Things are going as well as can be expected. I've got to regain all the lost strength in my leg now. I'm scheduled to have my other knee replaced June 30 and hopefully I'll be walking again by September/October.
Thanks to all for your prayers and encouragement!”
“That is such great news! Thank you for taking time to let us know.”
“I've been wondering how you are doing Hiking Mike. Glad the surgery went well.”
“I'm pulling for you, Hikin Mike.”
“Glad to hear the good news. Hopefully, they scheduled some physical therapy sessions for you.”
“Mike, I am glad you are looking forward to the other surgery. I always worry the first one will scare people away.
Thanks for the info!”
“good luck mike”
“Got plenty of Vicadin. I take it for the pain in my left knee.
Phil, I hope the second one goes as well as the first. I've got almost total 100% range of motion, it's just strength that I lack.”
“Wow, great news on knee #1.”
“AWESOME!!! Praise God! That's fantastic news, Mike!”
“Hey Mike! Sounding good - healing thoughts continue to head your way from here!”
