Jim, glad to see that you were able to make a strong comeback! It's things in life like skiing that get us through tough times.
Right back at ya buddy...it seems we have alot in common.
When I start to get worried about little aches and pains and what they might mean for my skiing, I typically bring myself out of worry mode by thinking of Hermann Maier's story. Now I can think of you two as well, and tell myself to shut up and ski.
