AND SO IT CAME TO PASS that I journeyed to Boston a month ago to undergo a right-knee replacement as I was no longer able to enjoy my 40-minute morning walks – come rain or shine – in and around Englewood due to ‘structural’ limb problems that had to be addressed sooner rather than later.
Earlier visits starting last November to a couple of esteemed hospitals in Manhattan had only provided temporary relief that even excellent trainers at local gyms in Tenafly and Fort Lee were unable to help improve upon.
Finally, after a successful surgery in Massachusetts followed by intensive rehab lasting four weeks I was glad to get back home to New Jersey this weekend with arrangements in hand for professional in-house help to get me back on my own two feet literally in fairly short order.
Since I was unable to keep in touch with my friends, relatives and acquaintances since late March, I trust they will understand the reason for my extended silence.
