01 August 2007: AND SO IT BEGINS!

Category: General
Posted by: mike
Did my routine run to Valley View. Overload at 5:30 pm on Tuesday and PT at 8:00 am on Wednesday with an overnight at GiGi's. Mom and I were on our own (no Marsh - how strange).

Joyce arranged an examination by physiologist Dr. Kelly that will co-inside with a Hanger prosthetic clinic next Wednesday after PT. "And Thus It Begins". The Cleve Metro team will kick things off, while waiting for the medical stuff to transfer south.

The clinic is reported to be very informative and an important first step in the prosthetic selection process. More so because Ruth K and I are starting to say (out-loud) that we want do a significant chunk (1000+ mile I hope) of the AT again in 2009. Once the knee/leg/foot is selected, I will be committed to it for a long, long, long, long, long time. So no pressure not to screw this one up.

Hi Maria and all the Hess Lake folks,

Good to hear from you. Missed the 4th of july visit - just too many obsticles. Hoping to visit Hess sometime in September no firm plans yet let you all know. I really missed my Hess home this summer. I still don't know what normal will be like when it finally gets here, but Hess Lake will be part of it.
