Well, I got out of the hospital yesterday and am now home with a brand new KNEE. No more cortizone in that one. I will say it hurts pretty good. In the interest of the COWBOY WAY, I have two bags of frozen vegetables tied on either side of it with a wild rag. We will do the other one about the 5th of January. When this hurts a little less, I will have time to get on here and harrass the crap out of all my old friends. That’s all for now I think I need to rest.

Patron, The doctor told me that I would no longer be bow-legged. I explained that it had taken over 50 years to get that shape. So now what. am I gonna sit there with my legs sticking straight out??

I don’t have a TV so I can’t watch reruns. Grizz. I’ll just get on here and aggravate all ofv you.

You got some new parts and should be better than old. Keep up with your PT. Like the old saying goes; If I have known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of my self.

In most cases, after you’re done with rehab, you’ll wish you had done this a lot sooner. My brother had both hip joints replaced a couple years ago. Now wishes he had done it several years ago. Running a ranch when your in pain all the time is no fun. He is an avid horseback rider, but had got to the point he couldn’t take the ride anymore. He is not only riding again, but breaking horses to ride again. He couldn’t be happier. Best wishes to your health and happiness.

By the way, you’re not missing anything by not having a TV.

Knit fast. You’ll be unstoppable. Better have those frozen vegetables for dinner…

Hope that everything comes out fine and that you’ll be dancing the Cowboy Jig soon.

Even Chris Ladue said that old cowboys need a little rock and roll. I got impatient and had both my knees
done at the same time. Made the rehab tougher until I found about rowing machines. Do not have horses,
but I can ride the mountain bike and touring bicycle a lot easier and further now. You should be all set by
the time branding time gets here, just stay away from those long yearling bulls that were hiding in the breaks
last year, although the rocky mountain oysters do taste good barbecued over a branding fire.
