O, the bone trauma was only about 2 weeks, and was not that bad..

Oomms, and prayers.

That's what I've been told. I believe in rehab. This will be my 4th ortho surgery. I think one reason he told me I would be off 6 weeks is that he knows that except for doing the magazine twice a year, my work has me driving 30-150 miles a day and getting in and out of the car a gazillion times a day. He said a big NO to that for 6 weeks.

On the way now. Kate's yelling! Gotta run!

Thanks again everyone! Love y'all!

Thanks Ken, Ed.

I'm waiting in pre-op. Got here at 5:30. Think I'm scheduled for 9:30. Kate's doing a crossword and I'm .... ;-)

Dr. just came by. He is a super guy. His PA is our good friend and she is giving me all kinds of a hard time. Lol. She asked me if I was having second thoughts since she will be leaning over me with a saw. I told her to just make sure she went into the witness protection program, cos I'll be comin' after her!

X2 Mel. We will be off roading today with Jeff and Marcia so cell service will be spotty at best - will be sending Ommms all the same. We mutants are a hearty bunch so I know you'll be fine.

Fear not....

I wish I had that Doc. I'd have milked it more just for Earlene.

You should be about in the middle of the saw procedure right now. I know it is going well, so Kate, give a holler. Also, don't spoil her more than you do now for goodness sake.

If Sena is ambidextrous I'll sit by you.

Mel update....
Kate just texted... "Mel is out of surgery. Doc said it went well, just routine"

I predict she will be on here before the day ends...... Smile....

We are going back today to Larrys post op checkup.... But he is doing great.....
Btw his preop EKG, tech and Doc both said it looked as if he never had a heart attack.... Strong....
Never doubt emotional well being as healing power..... Smile...
