Tomorrow is the day I go in for hip replacement surgery. No longer a choice.

Just got back home. I'm worthless for anything.

Saw the doctor today. They took an X-ray. They said it looks good, it certainly doesn't feel good. I think I mostly need to give it time. It's only been 2 weeks.

Phil, this things takes time! Do it step by step, just think about what you have to do: building and flying models. That's the spirit!!
I saw that you can use the internet. Next, the workshop activity and after....you know...flying...whopyeeee! :wink:

Today marks 4 weeks since the surgery. According to the surgeon, I can drive if I feel up to it. I don't. I'll see how I feel in another week. The new physical therapy left me hurting.

I believe I am getting very close to being able to drive. Another couple of months and I should be able to fly. Time will tell.

A few days ago I attempted to drive. First, the truck. It was extremely difficult to raise my leg to go from the gas to the brake. Not good. Second, the Honda. No problem driving the Honda. The problem is I can barely manage to get out of the thing. The therapist says the Honda is my first choice.

I now find myself able to negotiate the back stairs which allows me to access the garage/workshop and work on my models. Last week I did the first work on a model since the surgery. I'll keep it simple for now and get into the heavier work later.

I now need to go thru the shop and decide what needs the least work to make flyable. I have the remains of the BiPlane that I had to trash because it was unstable. The leadouts and controls are in the lower wing, so I removed the upper wing. This thing will fly like a combat model. I have a rough unfinished Banshee that looks promising. I have a rough Cosmic Wind that someone gave me. I have a couple of Tutor 2 models in unknown condition plus the one I tore the outboard wing off of by flying into a tree. I have a clone of a winder that needs some warp removal. This plus much more including 2 wrecked NoblARF's and 2 wrecked converted profile NoblARF's. Plenty of choices.

I have seen the surgeon. He is happy with my progress. He officially cleared me to drive. All restrictions come off in about 3 weeks. I still can't tie my right shoe. I may try to fly in another month. I hope my leg is strong enough. Before I try to fly, I will go out with my flying partner to help him fly and get the feel of that 45 minute drive the the field. After that, I'll see about flying.

UPDATE: Weather caused me to delay my attempt to go to the field to help my partner fly. It is now scheduled for this Sunday. It is also dependent on the weather, so we will have to see.

I went to the field today to help my flying partner fly. I did better than I thought I would considering what I've been thru. I didn't fly, but I plan to next time out.

After being down 4 months, I flew the Galaxy today 3 flights. The first flight was perfect except it sucked up the fuel load by the time I was ready to do the triangles. I leaned it out for the second flight, too lean. the engine seized. Burned out an Enya plug. The third flight, The engine refused to respond to the needle, but like a fool I went for it anyway. After 6 laps it went rich and I planted it with only a broken prop. Now to clean out the entire fuel system. Apparently 4 months is too long for the airplane to be down too. Wednesday I go in for my fourth pacemaker so I will be down till the wound heals.
