We just got back from the appointment with the surgeon. Don's heart and lungs sound great - he is doing so well that the surgeon gave him a letter that allows him to go back to work whenever he feels like it - but just part time. Don thinks it will be Monday for a few hours and we'll see how it goes after that. He still isn't allowed to drive - that will come one month after surgery - so I will drive him here and there and everywhere for a while longer - I'm just happy to have him here to drive around (and maybe drive a little crazy :-)
We are shocked and amazed at this good news - and very pleased. Tomorrow is just three weeks since surgery and we had no idea he'd improve this much, this fast. He is walking about 35 minutes a day without tiring, doing light housework chores and feeling fantastic.
We stopped by a favorite lake (which is a city park and has not one house on the shores) and sat for a while and enjoyed the news and the beautiful lake - what a wonderful way to celebrate.
Thanks again to all who sent us good thoughts, prayers, cards and emails - each and every one has been so special and meant so much to us.
Several blogger friends have been asking if the raffle for the quilt is still open - it is indeed. The expenses are going to be quite a bit more than what the insurance told us (of course, so what else is new?) so we are still raising funds and you still have a chance to win the quilt, or a chance at the other great prizes donated by friends around the country - what a great group blogggers are.
Hope your day is as happy as ours!!!!!
