hav12gym31: surgery

WelL I had surgery last wednesday. I went into the hospital at 6am. The surgery was scheduled for 7:30am. The surgery ended up taking 3 hrs instead of the 2 orginally thought. It took 3 hrs because my knee was worse off then orginally thought. There was more fragments of miniscus all around the knee and the acl was worse off. The doctor tried to take my hamstring but it ripped so he ended up taking my patella tendon. I was supposed to spend the night but I recovered so fast that they gave me the option to go home instead and of course I took it. I am allowed to put 50% of weight on my knee which is good because I will recover faster. I have already had one pt session. I can full straighten my leg and lift it. I go see the doctor again on the 30th of the month. I hope to be walking without crutches and maybe driving by then.

Okay, I have a question. I did gymnastics around the time I was in the fifth grade (it was only recreational and I never competed). I miss it, and I was wondering if anyone knew of programs for people who just want to do gymnastics for the fun of it. Things to keep in mind: I'm 18, have 2-3 years of prior experience, and can still perform some basic elements such as roundoffs. So I would be looking for an adult beginner class, I guess. Any thoughts?

[x]Gymnastics role (Gymnast/Fan/etc): ex-gymnast/coach
[x]Favorite gymnast: shannon miller

-If you are a gymnast:-

[x]Years doing gymnastics: i trained until i was 22. i would still train if i had the time and the money!
[x]Level: interclub (about equal to a level 6/7 in the US. the canadian system was totally different up until now - we've just this year implemented a cohesive sort of 10-level program similiar to the states)
[x]Favorite event: as a little kid, beam. as a teenager/adult, vault.
[x]Least favorite event: as a kid, oddly enough, vault. probably because i wasn't very strong or very powerful. as a teenager/adult, i'll say floor, but only because tumbling tends to give me a headache.

some odd facts for you - i had never set foot on a trampoline until i had to take a tramp coaching course when i was 19. our gym never had one until then. needless to say, i am still not entirely comfortable with either bouncing or teaching on them.
i did my first beat board vault at the age of 20. i have never vaulted on the new table. altho' it's my favorite to do, it is my least favorite event to coach on.
i love tumbling, and this year is killing me because my teenagers have all retired and i've got all little kids, just learning roundoffs and handsprings.

any other coaches out there?
