That's still the itinerary. But the departure day is delayed because I'm having knee surgery Thursday. Just the arthroscopic kind, where they make a small slice on each side of the knee, look around with a camera and fix stuff with a laser.
What I need fixed is the c-shaped cartilage called the meniscus.
I've had some minor trouble with my knee, but nothing that kept me from hiking. Then I went to a yoga class with my exercise-machine daughter, Ashley. I was on my hands and knees in a pose when it seemed like part of my knee moved. It hurt.
Last week I walked two miles with Ashley and my grandchildren. But my knee is unstable and stiff, and two mile walks would probable be infrequent. The doc says if I want to be active later this summer, he'd recommend surgery.
So we're going to hang out in SLC a while longer. But I'm going to keep posting.
