Good Morning, Gordon, I can sympathize with Janet, my knee still aches occasionally, while mostly I can move pain free that achy feeling is bothersome at night when trying to sleep, everyday is one more day closer to total recovery, does Janet need to go to PT? I think PT goes a long way toward being pain free. Double lung transplant.....wow thinking of what they (doctors) can do is just amazing, seems not that many years ago they had that iron lung machine. The fellow with the hip and shoulder surgery is pretty incredible also, with all that being done I wish they would have more for hands, I have spoke to the doc that follows me for my hands and they just don't have good joints to put in your hands, I'm sure they are working on it I'll wait . Have fun at the meeting, your bikes are in Arizona? mine are still in storage.

Hi All,


Do you experience that weather change joint ache thingy? I feel it in my neck and knee so I know the pressure and temp changes make a difference for me. Do you also notice that if you sit for a while then get up you feel so stiff like you can't even move? Those fluctuations really screw you up.


They can do a lot medically with joints and transplants now days. I started in this field 33 years ago and have seen some amazing things over that time. Arthroscopic surgery alone has made a huge difference in recovery time for those patients. Makes me wonder what they will come up with in the future.


Terry, I have a feeling that you are going to love getting back at the TH. What project are you going to hit first? Do you know? Hope it stays nice for you so you can get going at it.


The buds are coming out on the trees here and I hope tat old man winter is done being nasty and stays asleep.


You all have a good day! Lynne

Hi Lynne, Yes spring and fall especially are hard when we get a big change in barometric pressure, all my old injuries come to remind me how old I am. I'm getting set up to put the solar panels on when I can get back to it, since the ceiling is still accessible, (I can pull the insulation out) I am making blocks with 1/4" nuts out of 3/4" plywood that will be glued to the underside of the roof. That way the panels will be bolted instead of just screwed to the roof. Maybe overkill but it beats having one come off the roof. I would like to get all the stuff that needs to go on the roof done early. Next week is supposed to be rainy and cold so hopefully by the week after I can get with it. Have a great day.

Terry
Bolted down panels !!!!!
As with everything so far , your TH will be built better than anything to come of an assembly line. (You've definitely earned a top position in the CLAC)
Maybe all the various talents here could be put to work at your new RV factory !!
Oh yeah , that's right we're all retired ........why do I get the feeling that wouldn't make a difference ?

Hey Terry,

I'm guessing your using a tee nut for those mounting blocks like these:
1/4" tee nut

If not you might want to check them out. I've used them in blind applications before and they worked well. They do make 5/16" and 3/8" also.

Keep up the good work. Careful with that new knee.

Now two weeks after surgery Janet is much happier.

IMO it is really important to keep the affected joint as mobile as you can before the surgery. Janet's had atrophied and she had very little movement in it when we did the pre-op. The PT was not able to record any movement in the joint. I think that contributed to the post op pain.
I'm sure you are right about that. Now that the back is recovered I'm still mobile, but even after the injections the hip hurts if I dont at least take 800mg of advil. Avoiding the narcotics as much as possible and no more steroids they make my blood sugar go way too high.

I'm glad she is doing better. 2 weeks already? WOW!

Rebuild

Good Afternoon, Well I had #2 son handy so he could give me a hand, so I mounted one solar panel . That's all I had time for, its supposed to rain tomorrow so I wanted time for the Dicor to setup. I went up on roof and he could pass it to me then go inside to put in the mount blocks, then I could put the bolts in and tighten, one down five to go. Jay, this first summer we won't be too far away, so we should be able to meet up, august is when we always used to be on vacation
