    Hi Mike :D

    If you google "stem cells for new hip" you will be able to read all about it.

    Hope you and yours are doing ok today, the sun is just beginning to shine here, hope you will share it too. 8) :)

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    I watched it too Mike and think stem cell transplantation will be huge in the next 10-15 years. Very good news for a lot of people. If folk can use their own stem cells for these things then there won't be any of the awful side effects which one gets from using donated stem cells. Amazing, :)
