Seeing Dr. Millis

I will be seeing Dr. Millis this July during my vacation to Cape Cod. It will have been 2 years since I have seen him.... over 4 years since the surgery. I will have x-rays done before the appt (no MRI) and am hopeful that my hip still looks good he will encourage my running! I have not had any pain from running (not from my hips anyways!) and will be running in the Disney Tower of Terror 10 miler in Sept...... and will soon be registering for the Disney Princess 1/2 marathon for Feb. I am amazed at what he can do..... fixing my hip (with my own parts) to the point that I am able to run pain free....when before PAO I couldn't sit or walk pain free. I ran 6 miles yesterday..... in the afternoon..... in June....in Florida.... in 90 degree heat..... and felt wonderful!!! I did take a few walking breaks... only because I didn't want to get heat stroke! I am so thankful to Dr. M... sent his assistant an email last night trying to confirm the day and time for appt and copied him on the email. I got an out of office reply back from him...that he was gone until June 11th.... yet I got an email back from him this morning. He is unlike any doctor I have ever met. I am trying to think of something I can give him.... as a thank you.... thought maybe pictures of me wearing my 1/2 marathon medals?? With a nice thank you written on it?
