According to Dr. Philippon and his staff, I am doing extremely well. My PTs have been impressed with how fluid my daily range of motion tests have been and I am thankful that these movements have been PAIN-FREE! Each day has been a positive progression and I am excited to see the end result.
The snow has fallen almost every day since I arrived in Vail, Colorado. Beth and the kids have had a blast on the mountain while the gimp has journeyed to and from rehab. Jake and Libby both went through ski school and after spending just two days on the mountain, Jake was convinced he was ready for the Olympics! The kids have also enjoyed tubing, a sleigh ride, snowmobiling, and a million other things. Their time here has definitely helped with my rehab. Snow and crutches certainly don't mix but having my family with me during this journey has truly been a blessing.
After watching Brandt Snedeker dominate the PGA Tour over the last three weeks with TWO runner-up finishes and a WIN, I made an obvious request to Dr. Philippon. Since he successfully repaired Brandt's left and right labrum, I asked him to make sure he did EXACTLY the same thing to MY hip that he did to Brandt's!
Thank you as always for the support and the large number of emails and texts. They really mean a lot!
