i'm so happy for you! after 61 yrs, i'm still trying with mixed success.
may i give you a pieceof advice, based entirely on my experience? (come on, i dare you to say "no" )smilewr says "take it one day at a time." she's right. but cut it a bit finer than that. live in the moment. enjooy what god has given to you and what you, yourself, have accomplished. enjoy the essence of being. don't worry or even contimplate the unplesent things that MAY occur - they will take care of themselves. be cognisant of and enjoy every second that you are alive.
i pray that your recovery lasts and continues to improve.
your old and crotchety cyber friend,
That light at the end of he tunnel? It's an on-coming train.
