Hi Kat,

A big Ho-ray! That is great news, and in only 6 weeks! It took me another month, but I felt that recovery was finally achived. Just remind Jeff to still be cautious, and don't do anything stupid like I did. There are several of us out here that had to undergo futher surgeries. But, this is cause for celabration.

Continued good luck with your recovery.

Kat & Jeff,

 

Now the real fun begins….. yeah    Have fun!!

 

I’m glad you and Jeff have crossed this stepping-stone and can move forward. 

Your spirits must be flying high right now.  Continue on this wonderful recover/healing path. 

 

Thinking of you!

yes, Glen, I keep reminding him not to lift anything too heavy. of course last week he moved a small empty file cabinet and a new wooden bookshelf into his office (which is up a flight of stairs), but he said he used a dolly so it was fine. I won't let him carry cases of water or dog food either. I think he likes that! :)

Jeff is getting real good at getting those stones out of his way.
Best wishes to both of you.
