    I meet with the surgeon next week. I was allowed to take the dressing off myself, and I did about an hour ago. I do know he fixed a tear or two and took out some of the arthritis.

    Currently thinking about possible thinks to do for recovery when I am cleared to do so. Taijiquan is a given, but I discovered a new Pilates place in my area and wondering if that could help. However nothing happens with out MD approval. My days of not listening the the MD are over.

    Yes, they are good to listen to at times.

    I know you'll seek and find anything that will help you heal up, you've certainly the experience to do so.

    But I know one thing, in all my years in the Arts, there is nothing that has me feel physically as well as Taijiquan.

    Sounds like you made a mess in there. Hope the swelling starts down soon (that's usually the biggest limitation on recovery, especially around range of motion).

    And good decision on following the doc's orders. I tend to follow most of their orders, more or less.

    In my youth, I have a history of not listening to the MD and, of course, not getting better. So, in my geezerdom, I want to get better, not worse, so I will listen and see where that gets me.

    Doing a lot of reading on things Taijiquan while I'm recovering. mostly things written by Cheng Manching and his students

    By the way, we have a brand new little great-nephew. Our niece in Colorado had baby Killian (21 inches, 7lbs 1.5 oz.) on June 8th 2019.

    Why would you choose to go there???

    Seriously, LGA is my least favorite airport of all time, especially with the construction they've been doing there for the last thousand years or so. And my client keeps booking me there....even when it's 90 minutes farther away from my site than Newark.
