    A great read! A short excerpt below:

    The best part (aside from the great prognosis post-op) has been seeing the progress I have made day-by-day and week-by-week. When I hobbled out of the hospital on crutches in Vail, Colo., two months ago, it was hard to imagine that I would be jogging on a water treadmill eight weeks later.

    I couldn't even put on my shoes and socks by myself. All the simple things became nearly impossible. Forget playing basketball, I just wanted to be able to do things like get off the couch by myself, walk up stairs, cut my toenails, and so on.

    A good read, thanks man. I liked this one:

    After spending six weeks in a straight leg brace with limited activity, I am now on to more advanced things like strength and balance work. It definitely feels like more of a normal workout routine these days compared to the initial weeks that were filled with the basics -- quad sets and straight-leg raises. If those exercises won't drive you crazy, nothing will.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Whoa - he's already in the water tank?

    That's a big milestone.

    Sounds like things are going well for Dun. Rehab generally sucks and doing it two times a day would drive me a little crazy.

    Is Travis done with blogs? Dun's picture replaced his picture on Pacers.com.

    Travis may not have too much motivation to post on a Pacers blog if there is either little chance of him returning to the Pacers, or, in the event that he does, little chance of seeing the minutes he is worthy of based on his skill set.

    However, it could easily be that a Dunleavy recovery blog is simply much more eagerly anticipated by most people due to the concern most people have regarding his condition and a decision was made to replace Travis with Dunleavy.

    His option decision might hinge on the draft and how he feels about what he can get/contribute elsewhere.
