My good friend Shanghai (Dick) underwent scheduled back surgery yesterday (2/25/16). Although the surgery lasted longer than anticipated, all went well and Dick is feeling OK today (according to his text this morning). He is hoping to leave the hospital in a few days and is looking forward to a complete recovery (although I doubt he will be running the half marathon in Denver this October :) )

Dick (if you are reading this), I, together with your AU friends wish you a speedy recovery. Our thoughts are with you.

I am sure Archie is looking forward to your return home.

Dick, I wish you a good recovery and hope you will get home to Archie soon. He's adorable and just being with him will help you get better and stronger each day :) !

All the best Dick! I know the tracks are rough in some spots, but hopefully you'll be back riding the Trains soon!

BTW- Saw that Gov Christie was

in Texas Today endorsing The Donald! Attorney General maybe?

Hoping for a full recovery. I'm looking forward to your next mileage submissions at that other place.

Thank you everyone for your good wishes. I got home on March 19th, after one week

in hospital and two weeks in rehab. My doctors say I'm recovering well. Most of the

pain is gone. I drove my car for the first time since the surgery yesterday. I'm going

to take Archie for a ride on the golf cart today, and then the Silver Meteor will be next!!

Great news Dick! Good thing its the Meteor, if you took Archie on the Silver Starvation you'd have to take some Alpo for him!
