      Those hospital corridors are slippery - watch the turns! This brought some memories - dragging the IV pole up and down the hallway. Probably seems like a task without end right now, but it will end. You're doing great, Mike.

      I remember reading some of his comments on your posts. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. Too many tragic deaths of runners and cyclists that probably could and should, have been avoided through no fault of the athlete.

      Reasonable? That's more like super human. Watch that chest congestion - here in the healthcare world we hear there's still some sporadic flu, pneumonia and unfortunately pertussis floating around out there. Hope California is the cure for what ails you!
