That really was Tim Taylor
Just in case anyone was wondering, the blog entry near the end of the thread about Tim Taylor's surgery that was signed "Tim Taylor'', actually was written by the Lightning captain.
"I just wanted to thank everybody for putting some nice thoughts in there,'' Taylor said by phone from his room at University Community Hospital. "It definitely motivates you. You just know that people are pulling for you, and you don't want to let them down.''
Taylor, who on Thursday underwent a resurfacing of his right hip to fix a painful case of hip dysplasia, said he took 250 steps (with the aid of a walker) at his morning therapy session, and 350 at his afternoon session. Taylor said he was told he must take 250 steps before he can be released from the hospital. Even so, Taylor said he will not go home until Saturday.
"The physical therapist has been pushing me pretty hard,'' Taylor said. "He said the more walking you do, the better it's going to be.''
