Good evening, a little bird informed me earlier today that Jim Sutter, of Jims Train Shop in Homer City PA is recovering after hip surgery here in Indiana PA.
Get well soon Jim !!!!!

And do your PT, Jim!
Jim, get well, but speaking from experience, do your physical therapy!
I broke my femur last year and most of the people in pt had replacement parts and were reluctant to do the exercises. That delays the healing.
On the other hand, I just renewed my digital subscription so I have plenty to read while riding the bike.
Get well Jim!
Here's to a successful procedure and recovery! Be well!
Mark, Thank you for passing on the word from the bird!
Jim, I first met you at Patrick H's home and always like seeing your comments. I wish I had known of your store when you had it. I agree with others, be diligent with your PT! I'll keep you in my prayers.
Good luck Jim and get better soon. Jim’s shop in Homer City was my favorite place to stop and shop on my way to or back from the large power plants a few miles up the road. I did a lot of road trips to those big boilers. My oldest son went to PITT and of course Jim’s shop was always a stop on the way out to visit.
Boy do I miss that train shop. Jim's was my MTH place to shop. Get well soon.
Feel better Jim! We miss you!!
Best wishes for a good recovery, Jim.
Several have urged you to do the physical therapy. That will be the biggest factor in a good recovery. I had a total knee replacement five years ago, and did all the P.T. prescribed, more frequently and for longer than prescribed. As a result, I have a pain free knee with 98% of the natural rotation and bend. I'm 74 and can climb up on my railroad layout with no difficulty, when I need to. You can do this, too.
Embrace the pain, and later be delighted with the result. Best wishes to you.
Good luck to you Jim. Get Well. Was a pleasure dealing with you. Wish I had met you.

Get well Jim, the only shop owner that ever called me at 11 pm because I left an inquiry if he had something in stock or if he was getting it. I picked up the phone on the first ring so no one else in the house would wake up. I heard "Hi this is Jim from my train shop, how much you looking to spend and how soon do you want it".
As they said above do those exercises religiously. You will be stiff and sore but once you get going it gets easier day by day.
Jim, speedy recovery. Follow the PT and you will back to normal soon.............Paul 2
Best wishes, fast recovery. I'm sure those sweet nurses have you on your feet by now.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
Here is my wish for your speedy and healthy recovery!!! Pls do the PT and don't scrimp on "no pain, no gain" ....you can do it! As Mike CT said, part of your therapy can be chasing the nurses around the hospital a la Harpo Marx. That works for me, as Mrs Red Jimmy is a nurse, and me being 64 yrs old....keeps me pretty spry!!
Jimmy, your comments hit home. I was 63 last November when I had total knee replacement, and since Mrs B is a nurse, she makes me take better care of myself than she takes care of herself. I still feel pain, but I absolutely agree, no pain, no gain.
MarkStrittmatter, is there any update on how Jim is recovering?
Thank you for all your kind thoughts. Sorry, it has taken me so long to respond. I didn't realize this post was here. I just finished reading all of your comments. Last week I started out patient PT at a place in Indiana PA. I hope you all have a great evening. Please take care and stay safe.
