Homeward Bound

I am homeward bound as the song says. Despite my initial trepidation, I am rapidly progressing and will be ready to go home Sat. When talk of such an early discharge first arose, I was scared. Even though I was progressing much more rapidly than I did with my left knee, I still had to accomplish a number of feats. Since then, those goals have been met.

So the next few weeks will consist of a parade of people through our home: phlebotomists to draw my blood three times a week and physical therapists to work those muscles.

Then with greater strength comes the task of packing up to move Aug. 1. Thanks be to God for another chapter of our lives.

Glad you're doing well. I figure one of these days my knees are going to blow out and have to be replaced too. Maybe by then, it'll be an outpatient procedure. :)

That would be nice, co-heir, but with the intense pain, you have to be on major drugs. Even with that, it's very painful. Peace.
