Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my tango with the robot.
 
I feel extremely blessed to have the positive outcome that I have had to date.  I can't thank you all enough for your support prior to the operation and afterwards.  This is a great place and the kindness and help that is routinely given to others here is a thing of beauty. 
 
Special thanks to Arnie who really was my guide in the days before and after the operation.
 
Here's to a happy and healthy year for all of us
