Lou, we've not met, but I work in the health industry( X-Ray) and wish you good fortune. Hip replacement surgery is common and very successful these days and easier to recover from than Knee replacement, so I'm told by the Surgeons I work with. Before you can spit, you'll have clearance to drive again. Remember this: Growing old may be compulsory, but growing up is definitely optional.   :grin: Good luck mate.
Cheers, Ron B

Just a rev up mate ... I knew it would work.  LOL
Congrats on the trophy ... great work!

And Lee ... the guy driving that Cobra is a tosser. Last meeting he was trying to set the land speed record in pit lane ... absolute jerk.
