Surgery coming up.
As 2008 ended, I had a bum knee, a blocked Artery in my left leg and had just lost my job.
On Friday 3/13, I am having a procedure to correct the blocked artery and have an appointment the following week with an Orthopedic Surgeon to see about getting the Knee repaired.
At 64 y/o, I'm having a heck of a time finding a job or even anyone who wants to talk about hiring me. Full or Part time. So, if the leg and knee procedures work ok, I'm going to try and dedicate my self to riding every day with the hope of getting up to 50 miles/day.
Fortunately, my wife says she will support the effort and allow me to continue the time off and ride.
Of course, I'm still a neophyte rider and she is a veteran rider, she understands the need/want to ride.
Hopefully, life should be good in 2009.
