Thanks for all that and I hope to see you back in the pool and on the forums someday. 55 is still young in Masters swimming.
Thanks Doug. Means a lot. The thought of starting from scratch is a bit daunting. But you never know ... Congrats on you #1s in the 50 frees!

Yeah it's not what I hoped either. The clot just was not caught soon enough and I had a huge first rib which could have been damaging the vein for years. My dr is going to schedule the surgery on my left side. So I will be out for a long time. How is your rehab going? Shoulder better?
