Farewell Post!

Kayaking in front of Shoup Glacier outside of Valdez.


OK, if I'm able to kayak 16 miles and hike about in Alaska (with a side trip to perform with the Kingikmiut Dancers at the Alaska Native Heritage Center) then I think I'm done with blogging about my torn ACL, the surgery, the rehab, the physical therapy and all the rest. My knee fared pretty well during the trip. I did need to take ibuprofen regularly but it was fine.
I saw my surgeon yesterday. He said the ligament is strong but my quads are still weak. He said I have to get on rebuilding my muscles if I want to go skiing this winter. He also said that I probably caused some irritation with all the activity but it wouldn't have been so bad if I had been stronger! So I went right out and joined a gym. I did a good work out yesterday and didn't hate it (so much).

Good luck to all the newbie ACL reconstruction patients! Choose the best surgeon you can, find a physical therapist you like, and do the exercises. It will all work out. If I can do it, you can do it.


I MADE IT -- HIP, HIP, HOORAY!



Fin.

Thats great to hear. I haven't been too active since it's too cold to play ball outside and not cold enough for snow (down here). I have been working out regularly since leaving rehab and I'd say my knee is about 96%. If I don't work out for a week I feel some weakness but after a workout that goes away quickly. I'll be skiing as soon as there's enough snow and I'm not worried about any thing knee related. Glad to hear you're doing well and remember it takes almost two years to be fully healed no matter how good it feels. Keep going to the gym and working on all muscles surrounding the knee, they are your natural knee brace and will definitely help with skiing.

Take care,
Mike

O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso.
