I am very glad that the critical, life-threatening medical issues have been resolved. I was wondering why it took that long to get news about you.

I hope that the healing process goes well.

I hope by now you are healing well and getting some rest. It sounds like a nightmare to have so many problems with your knee replacement. But then, if they found a bowel obstruction and were able to remove a couple hernias, maybe it's a blessing that they were sidetracked. It sounds like the next time they try, you'll be in much better condition, so let's hope that means they'll be successful. Take care and heal fast. I'll be keeping you in my prayers in the meantime.

Well gang here I am after 4 weeks in hospital and an unsuccessful 5th attempt at replacing my left knee.

I went into hospital for a Stage II Revision of my left knee due to osteomyelitis but when they opened up my leg they found that my extensor tendon and patella were both detached, so they had to repair them before they could re-install my knee. They told me that I needed 8 weeks of healing before they could go back in for the 6th time to re-install my knee.

While in hospital recovering I developed a bowel obstruction that just about killed me. They had to do emergency surgery in the middle of the night in order to save me and at the same time corrected 2 life threatening hernias between my bowels and lungs. As a result, I've been MIA.

It's been very difficult, and challenging, but I think it's getting better every day. We're not out of the woods yet, but we're getting there. I still need to go back for the knee replacement and hopefully that will be the end of my knee problems.

It's going to take me some time to get back in the groove, so I'll ask that you be patient,

Stay Healthy and Stay In Touch.

Best wishes with your surgery and recovery, Dave. I didn't know it was possible to have knee replacement done that many times!! I think it's wonderful that you're setting up this group for the men among us--definitely needed. Best of success with that too.

Hi Gang, and thanks a lot Indygirl for your confidence and good wishes.

As I prepare myself this evening for the 7th assault on my body in 16 months I look forward with anticipation to a positive outcome to tomorrows' procedure. I'm counting on the surgeons and staff having a great nights sleep and tomorrow enjoying a successful procedure with me. After that it's all up to me and my body to take care of the next phase.

I've been preparing my body and mind for this day and look forward to putting it behind me and moving forward with the healing and recovery process. I've told everyone at the gym to expect me back in the gym within 3 weeks, provided I don't end up on IV antibiotics. I hope that I'm not disappointed. Regardless of the outcome, I'll do what ever I have to do to put this behind me.

You know last night, I was at my first Toastmasters event of the new season and gave a speech based on Jim Rohn's comments about reaping and sowing and I told my fellow Toastmasters that my accomplishments with SparkPeople and recoveries from surgeries were all based on that philosophy, because a lot of our reaping is based on the goals that we sow. You know, if we sow goals to stick to our food plans, we reap them. If we sow plans to be faithful to our plan to go to the gym regularly, we reap them. If we sow plans to get well quick, we do.

While, I'm away for the next little while I want you all to think about this, did the members of SparkPeople who have achieved the goals that they did have Easier goals than you or were they better defined with plans that were executed and followed through? When you get the right answer, you'll know the right path.

Stay Healthy and Stay In Touch,

'Big' Dave
