As the surgeon is looking me over, he asks the other doctor to guess what my hobby is. Of course he couldn't. So the surgeon tells him that I rollerskate.

The surgeon then tells me the two most unusual questions his post-operation patients have asked is: "When can I go back to rollerskating?" (my question) & "When can I play dodge ball?" (from a 93 year old woman)

Exercise is always good for a body, but especially true after major surgery.

Keep rollin
I've always said, " If you can walk, you can skate." I'm changing that to, " If you can walk, you should skate."
