    As someone who's helped his father rehab from hip replacements, I can tell you those 19 floor tiles he covered might as well be the Indy 500. I guarantee he's counting every one of them as a measure of his progress.

    Check the muscle atrophy in his lower legs, and the tremble in his right thigh. It's going to take months to get the muscles where they'll support him again, but at least they're functioning!

    Both hips. Gotta be strong.

    My wife has 2 of those and 1 knee. Knee #2 in April.

    She hates me during rehab.

    That's freakin' beautiful! All the pieces work!!! Hopefully now it's 'just' a matter of building the muscles back up.

    Incredible dedication by Robert and the team working around the clock with him. This is nothing short of incredible, I think there will not be a single dry eye once he's back walking under his own power.

    Seriously badass.

    I know what you mean,but that's a silver lining that's hardly worth this particular dark cloud.

    Here is someone going through something similar. Ex-pro mx racer turned trainer for K-Roc and others. Never met the kid but his family and my family are longtime friends. I've got faith he'll recover the same. It's amazing how much being in world class shape helps with recoveries like this. *nukes hot pocket*

    Wickens was at the track yesterday. I'll bet it felt good to be back.

    "What's my excuse?" is pretty much my reaction to all of these videos. Good motivation.
