Nola and I had Frickadellen with their famous green beans and I had mashed potatoes and she had spaetzle, Dave had the salmon, sauerkraut, and green beans and Bob had Bierox and green beans.


Can you see a theme here... their green beans are THE BEST!

Sorry this such a late comment. My ketchup is running slow this week and mutants are very verbose. 100 plus posts per day??? Y'all are killing me.

Ok, Tim where in the world did you find FOOL INSULATION? Sounds like something I need. Is it for keeping fools inside or out of your RV? I'm curious as to just how it works. Love Ya!

We are settlin' down a little bit for a while. Our adventures with the grandkids are done for now. It was sooooooooooo much fun to see their reactions to various gorgeous areas of this fine country of ours.

In late October we are going to finish off our bucket list of running the MH thru 49 of the 50 states. We'll check off Conn. (46), New Jersey (47), Maryland (48), and Deleware (49). Being just "part timers", we will have hit them ALL since September of 2010 while covering some 40,000 plus miles in the process. THAT IS WHAT WE BOUGHT THE MOTOR HOME FOR.

Stay safe, stay well, stay happy, and say "hi" to Annie (your better half).
Steve - does that mean something is coming to an end - or starting again.... we hope to make your area in May - if you're around.

My Dr, who was also a Professor at the Medical University nearby was always chiding me about the "Crazy Americans" who insisted on having both knees done at once (the "German" way is do one, wait a year, do the other - and you KNOW how regimented the Germans are LOL!!)

Anyway, my Knee replacement and rehab was so very different from the USA that I can understand why the Germans think that way!!

Fortunately, I only needed the Right one done....so it's been 6 months, how are you doing?!
Hi Mel,

My right knee still aches a bit at night if I've been walking and climbing lots of stairs. But other than that I rarely think about them. I wish I could have a new spine implanted to take away back pain.

I had very little PT, just a Home Health PT coming out twice a week for 6 weeks. For me, just living my life like I wanted was what got my knees to where they are. Did I mentioned I climbed the Arkansas hills in order to do 7 zip lines just 10 weeks after surgery? That was tough, but with a trekking pole and a bit of mutant help I made it. Crossed that off the bucket list.

I'm not sure what a goniometer would measure my flexion, but I've been told that you need 115 degrees to climb stairs. Stairs are easy now. I even started climbing the RV ladder in May.

You can get there, too. The more you use them the faster they get better.

That's because his memory is so bad he has to have proof that he actually ate, or he'll dine again.

And I've finally caught up to this thread.

Hi Barb!
Truth is the food was so good we forgot to pic it til we were done snarfing.
If any STMs are ever near Paola KS, give Marty a holler to hook up at Beethovens 9th!

VASTLY different post-surgery rehab Germany vs USA....

When I had my knee done, I was in the German Hospital for 10 days - 3 hours post surgery I was in a Knee articulator for 30 min on 2 hours off for day 1
Day 2 I was up walking
Day 3-5 Same + Articulator 30 min on 3 hours off
Day 6-9 PT every day 4-5 hours. On Day 7 I was doing stairs
Day 10 discharged to 3 weeks of in patient Physical Therapy at a German Rehab facility. My day consisted of:
Breakfast at 0700
Chief Dr visit at 0800
0900-1100 Hourly physical therapy classes or massage or water therapy
1100-1200 Lunch
1200-1600 More PT classes and massage and water therapy
1700 Supper

Rinse & repeat for 5 days a week - weekends were off except for 1-2 hours of gym time.

If I ever have to have another joint replaced I will go back to Germany!

Oh, did I mention that the whole enchelada - surgery, joint, Hospital, 3 week Rehab and All Meds and all expenses was just slightly over $56K? ($150+K in USA and NO 3 weeks rehab!)

Except for the expenses, that sounds an awful lot like my sister's double knee replacement schedule she had ... I don't think they did water therapy though, she did a lot of water therapy prior to the surgery, and was iced and had her knees in a 'articulator type getup" for a couple of days post surgery.... I believe she was out and rehabbing at her camper within 3 weeks time. ( Outpatient PT)

Usually we come home from Florida/sometimes Arizona in early April. We hang close to home in May (usually entertain DW's card group for a long weekend). June is when we get antsy and start conjuring up dreams of seeing more of North America.

Parts of Canada in the Northeast will probably be on the list in '15. Might spend 4 -6 weeks checking out the maritime provinces.

Our wanderings are pretty seasonal. Thanksgiving and Christmas can't be tampered with. We will continue to travel 8,000 - 12,000 miles a year until my health causes us to ponder other life styles.
