I understand. I messed up my back water skiing and it's never been the
same. I can't sleep flat or I wake up in tons of pain. I even bought one
of those sleep number things that didn't improve anything. I sleep in my
Lazyboy recliner now and feel much better. So having said all that......I
still water ski every now and then. The first pull of the season is the
worst....two days later.
If I'm not driving the boat, I'm drinking beer.....HIT IT!
