It doesn’t seem that long ago.
Back in 2002 my 3-on-3 team won the NBA sponsored Hoop-it-Up tournament in downtown St. Louis.

But a lot has changed these past few years. Since then I have had horrible problems with my knee. The last couple years I had the cortisone shots. Earlier this year I had arthroscopic surgery. It didn’t go so well. I had more shots this summer and fall. Nothing has worked and walking even 200 to 400 yards is very painful. So on Tuesday morning I am having knee replacement surgery. I will be out for a few days. In my absence I’ve asked Andrea, Rachel, Mara, John, Ed, and several others to fill in. I’m sure you will be in good hands. I won’t be checking email for a few days.

Thank you all for helping out while I am recovering. Hopefully, all will go well and I will be back soon. And, thank you everyone in advance for your thoughts and prayers.

  6. Prayers for you, Jim, and all best thoughts for a speedy recovery after successful surgery. We’ll miss you over the next few days…

  7. Word from a double knee replacement patient. Good Luck with the replacement. There are knee surgeons and there are knee surgeons, so I’m hoping you have a real knee surgeon. A knee replacement is neither quick nor easy, BUT ABSOLUTELY necessary for those who need one. Good advice from earlier letters; get out of the hospital as quickly as possible, get on the therapy as quickly as possible and stay on therapy as long as necessary(work that knee, don’t be afraid to take the pain pills). Eighteen months from now you will be enjoying the strong new knee and wondering where the pain went. No more marathons or high jumping—ever. KEEP YOUR WEIGHT DOWN—THE LONG TERM SUCCESS OF KNEE OR HIP SURGERY IS DEPENDENT ON BODY WEIGHT—LOW BODY WEIGHT.

  8. good luck.
