in the large scope of things you were fortunate yes. I'm betting as you were so fit before you will attain a previous level and it will also help you recover and perhaps minimize lasting pain. good luck rhubs!
rhubroma...I didn't read your last post...and I am not going to. We come from very different backgrounds with different ideas and thoughts about the world. Contrary to what you feel...I actually do respect your thoughts, just not the way you go about expressing them. I realize the world we live in is far from perfect. I do my best to raise my children to the best of my ability, hoping that they become constructive citizens in this world. Anyway, I don't come on these sites to get into fights. Suffice it to say, we will never agree on much...but I do respect your convictions. All the best, Tim
