I have an appointment with my primary care physician on Tuesday, 13 June 17, at 1:30 p. m. and one with my Orthopedic PA Gretchen Mason on Thursday, 15 June 17, at 1:00 p. m. I would appreciate your prayers for both. The one with Gretchen at OISI will be on the one year anniversary of my hip revision surgery. I REALLY HOPE to return to doing SOME RUNNING as part of my physical regime ASAP. Gretchen is an avid runner too, and in October she told me, “We recommend with the hip replacements that you don’t return to running, as that will be added wear and tear on the appliance resulting in it having to be replaced sooner; but, if it were I, I would want to do the same.” I have found a neat website called HIP RUNNER, and all the folks there have returned to running after hip replacement surgeries. I really hope and pray I can do the same. Thank you for your prayers. BTW all listed times are CDT. “Longing to Return to Running for Jesus ASAP, David Reynolds, “Pastor Dave”–HEBREWS 12:1-3 <3 <3 <3

Well, P. T. L.; HALLELUJAH; THANK YOU, JESUS, AMEN; I’m back!!!!!!! IT HAS BEEN 151 days since my last upload of my Virgin Pulse Steps. I broke my right hip on 15 April 2016, had a total hip replacement on 17 April 2016, but then the hip went out of socket on me on 16 May 2016, and 03 June 2016. I then HAD a hip REVISION SURGERY on 15 June 2016, and today is Tuesday, 13 September 2016, and I just downloaded my pedometer for the first time since either 14 or 15 April 2016. My GOAL is to eventually be back to RUNNING AGAIN, even if I can’t start doing so for a year. This is HUGE, AMAZING, AWESOME to be back at The Hub in Marion once 37:00 and 6.77 miles and then walked a mile on the track in 20:29.89. My Virgin Pulse Pedometer gave me over 3,500 STEPS today!!!!!!! I want to thank Joshua Shelton, Michele, and Pam at OISI physical therapy who helped me in my recovery.–Still Hoping to Run for Jesus Again, David Reynolds, “Pastor Dave,” HEBREWS 12:1-3 (Y) <3–P. S. I have been a LONG TIME RUNNER, starting on the original Kenneth Cooper AEROBICS program in June of 1968 when I was 20. Until my accident on April 15, 2016, I had logged over 33,000, ALMOST 34,000 miles since beginning keeping my log book in September of 1978.
