My fellow hip brother Jeremy was in town last night so we met up for a beer and compared notes. In my earlier post, I explained that Jeremy had gotten his hip replaced 2 weeks after I did. It was great to catch up and finally meet him in person. Among other things, we talked about our recovery timelines for getting back to the activities that we enjoy. He’s a huge softball player and wants to be recovered before the season begins. He pitches. He has 7 different pitches. I didn’t know softballs could break. Who learns 7 different kinds of slow pitches???? VERY Impressive. Softball by spring is HIS goal. Mine is to be ready to go for Hoopfest at the end of June. I have played at every single Hoopfest. It was great to compare notes with Jeremy. We sat at a table in the corner of Jack & Dan’s and only allowed other people with hip replacements to sit at our table. That is until some mutual friends showed up. We took a vote and the restriction was lifted. It was a good visit. Especially for me….he bought the beer.
