Yep, I'm back, more or less......
It's been an interesting three plus weeks, to say the least! About two or three days agao I finally turned the corner and started to show progress in recovery. I'm still really weak and get itred out easily, but each day of the last three has shown noticeable improvement. I can now walk around a bit, and get in and out of bed unassisted. We went to the surgeon this morning and had the incisions checked over, and everything is healing up well. Thanks to everyone who emailed or commented with best wishes. That meant a lot when I was at the really low points in this adventure.
