One of my sales guys had his hip replaced on the 25th of March. By the 10th of April, he was walking without use of a cane and flew with me to two customer meetings in Canada. He told me that they had him out of bed and walking just hours after the surgery.

Wishing you a speedy recovery and get back in the saddle soon. We're all falling apart but somehow we continue on.

Also this ^^ ... Although, to be honest, I got my new hip more than a decade ago now, so my knowledge of the routine isn't the most current.

It's enormously gratifying, Ken. You'll see -- you'll be up and around in no time.

If you need any durable medical equipment, let me know. I've still got some around which you're welcome to borrow.

Wow, here's hoping it goes well and you are soon pain free, Ken! I have 10 years on you and and while the joints are getting stiff, fortunately there are no plans for replacement parts yet...

I know you believe you understand what you think I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
