    I don't have any. We haven't done a TS vacation for the last 2 years as I have to get hip replacement surgery on both hips before we can do this. As a result I now have 6 banked weeks at SFX and another week that I haven't deposited yet with them.

    I was supposed to have the hip replacement in early 2014 but I had to have emergency surgery that took 9 months to heal. I lost a lot of strength from being bedridden for so long so my orthopedic surgeon put me on a program to strengthen me that involved a steroid injection and physical therapy. However after a week on Physical therapy, I had a fainting spell that sent me to the hospital ER where they discovered that I have a large "saddle pulmonary embolism" which is a large blood clot between my lungs. I also have several other blood clots in my lungs. So I was in the ICU and they started me on blood thinners. I am now home and a nurse comes to the house twice a week to check my blood INR. I am taking Coumadin which is a blood thinner. The doctor said I have to be on the blood thinner for at least 6 months so hip replacement surgery is out the window for at least 6 months. I take one step forward and 2 steps backwards. I also have a physical therapist that comes to the house twice a week. That is progressing quite well.

    So hopefully we can start using our TS weeks in 18 months or so.
