Pete and the Magic Knee

So, this past Monday, father, father-in-law and Pop-pop Pete had knee replacement surgery. A remarkable, yet painfully challenging operation for anyone.

Unbelievable the day after surgery, Pete's up and readyto go.

But pete is 84 years young. He dances almost weekly, and has quite a ‘cult’ following whenhe belts out his terrific rendition of ‘Ole Blue Eyes’ tunes at local clubs and parties.

He’s in rehab now, but we have every reason to believe that he will, at his age, make the therapists and doctors alike, scratch their heads in amazement with his remakable progress and recovery.

Way to go Dad! Hope none of us has to go through the same thing, but if we do, hope we can be as resilient and determined as you. Get well soon. You’ll be kickin’ it out in no time.

OK, so he had a little leftover morphine in him, and perhaps the codiene was doing its thing, but Pete still had a smile and a laugh--even through the pain.

Pensive moment? Nope. That's Pete just being silly.
