    Tomorrow I go in for total knee replacement surgery. I’ll be in the hospital Wednesday and Thursday, coming home Friday. Then it’s a few weeks at home, with pain meds and physical therapy. I had one knee done last September, so I know what to expect.

    So for a few days I won’t be able to get my daily fix of Qview and talk about smoking meats. I think it says something about this passion of ours, and this forum, that as I get ready to have surgery and be laid up for a bit, one of the things I know I’ll miss most is checking out the posts here.

    But hey, I’ll have a few weeks at home to catch up, and who knows, if the therapy goes well and the Ohio weather cooperates, maybe I’ll be able to spend some time cooking before I return to work.

    So wish me luck, and post some tasty Qview that I can check out when I get back online! [​IMG]

    Ok Jak. But when you get back home & rested enough to be able to reach up to the smoker, I want to see some qviews buddy. Don't waste that "Stay at home from work" time off. Good luck. Feel better.
