It's been a good long time since I've posted a new blog entry; to be honest, I'm not sure what prompted it. I guess my mind is just running and it's good to be able to get my thoughts out. First, as the title suggests I am retired, and it is everything I had hoped for and more. My family and I are happily back in Michigan and we have a beautiful house. I have been dealing with the VA and despite expected difficulties it has been going quite well. I received a new knee brace today and it is fantastic. I have reached the limit of surgical intervention, at least until I am 50 and am old enough for a replacement. Until then, I will get injections every 3 months and continue to wear my brace whenever I need to be on my feet for more than a few moments at a time.

Short but sweet, I guess that's enough for today, or at least for now. I'll post more when my brain starts to spin again. Until then...
