Re: I get to drive my truck tomorrow

I hope that it goes well. I had foot surgery that wasn't as extensive as yours and I still couldn't hold the gas pedal and go 5 miles without it hurting like crazy, 3 months later.

Re: I get to drive my truck tomorrow

Congrats. When I had shoulder surgery the doc said no hand shakers. That lasted maybe 3 weeks before I said I was driving myself. All my rides are manuals other than the wife's and you have to take the jeep to get to its parking spot. Jetta wasn't bad but I did stay out of the trucks for a bit longer.

Re: I get to drive my truck tomorrow

That's great news. And good on you for following your doctor's orders.

When I was in HS I broke my left foot. Hurt it Friday, hobbled all weekend, by Monday figured maybe a doctor should have a look. After the x-ray he started rolling up my pants leg and I knew I was getting a cast. My mom, who never had a drivers license, came with me. The doctor asked if she drove and of course she told him she didn't drive. Then he said, well I hope the car has an automatic. "Yep". I lied in front of my mom. We came in my dad's '62 Land Rover. I drove us home .

Re: I get to drive my truck tomorrow

Good to hear. Its hard to be still and listen to the doctors, but it normally works out when we do,

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Re: I get to drive my truck tomorrow

Took a ride over to my Sons house this afternoon. MAN that felt Good. Took me all of 3 seconds to get settled back in and banging gears.

Life is Good
