Recovery Mode

Not much has been happening lately.  Built a few boards, but mostly I've been in recovery mode.  No the post Thanksgiving food-coma recovery, but post arthoscopic knee surgery for a torn lateral mensicus.  This was an old injury and I can't even remember how it happened.  Finally decided enough was enough and went to see an orthopaedic surgeon.  I had surgery at the end of October and am still not back to 100 percent.  It is amazing how fast the muscles atrophy.  I did  a some surfing about 5 weeks after the surgery and I felt like a stiff old man, confident enough to take off on only the smallest ankle-biters!  It's getting better back in the water, but still a long way to go to get back to my pre-surgery level.
