About this title

Synopsis:

This is the true story of the misadventures of Joey McQuaig, a middle-aged man, who a tears the cartilage in his knee. Osteoarthritis soon develops in both knees and spreads to both hips. The doctor's orders are for total knee and hip replacements. Joey is going to be a "4 by 4." Amazingly, he returns to physical activity as he did...twenty years ago earlier, even though his body is older, his hips and knees are titanium. The results are comical as our survivor slips, slides, stumbles and falls-down stairs, off roofs, from ladders and out of vehicles. He learns quickly that titanium doesn't make you Superman...or does it? Joey, a former athlete, decides to resume jogging and begin a search for ways to renew vigor in his life. Along the way, he learns to manufacture natural pain killers and discontinues his meds. Throughout the book you learn of his simple, down-home philosophy about living life with gusto even with titanium joints. With a chance for a renewed life, Joey's endurance of bilateral knee and hip replacements led him to discover "to whom God has given much, much is required to give back to others." Rather than following old and worn paths, he cuts new trails and encourages other to do the same. This survivor learned early on "not to quit" and he doesn't. This inspirational story moves from humorous to profound as readers are challenged to determine what is restricting their growth-physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually as they are asked, "Do you have a wish-bone or a back-bone?" We have a final warning from Joey, "Follow doctor's orders...and your heart as well."
