Michrider's Surgery

My Knee revision (a generic video is available on YouTube) is complete. The surgery was performed (4.19.16) by surgeons from Beacon Orthopedic, at Christ Hospital (Joint & Spine Center) in Cincinnati!!! Beacon & Christ Hospital provided me with great services!!!!! I stayed one night in Hospital & now I’m home. I’m finding my posts take twice as long to type, apparently pain meds affect decision making. Who’d have thunk!!! I won’t be in Iowa this July but I will be back!!!

BTW, RAGBRAI don’t care!!!!

The new improved Lefty (no longer 2.0) finished therapy in June. My surgeon gave me approval to ride! Yesterday, for my first ride of the year, I rode 8.0 miles around a bike trail loop in a local park. Not much but it was a big deal to me! Today, Lefty feels good and I’m looking forward to my next ride. I hope to be back for RAGBRAI next year. I hope Y’all have a great week in the corn!!! Drink a few beers and eat some pie!!!

Mich- Sorry that I won’t be able to share a beer with you in pork camp this year. Life could be worse, I spent the afternoon with a riding buddy yesterday, he caught a squirrel in his spokes, went over the bars and is now an “incomplete quadriplegic”. He is regaining some motion and hopefully will be able to be walk again. Take care, we’ll see you next year.
