Hi everyone!  First, I'd like to thank everyone for the well-wishes.  It truly meant a lot to me to see the responses.

Quick update, 2 months since my surgery, and I just completed my first bike ride.  24 miles on a local rail trail (The NCR trail for anyone local to Central Maryland).  It felt great to get back out there at a normal level of activity...of course, my butt had forgotten what it's like to be in the saddle for 24 miles.  Gotta work on that.  😁
