I made it out! Surgery
« on: September 14, 2016, 04:11:16 am »
Saw the lights go out at 10:00 this morning, asked Christy when was I going in at 6:10 this evening! Wow! Walked at 10:30 this evening no walker but hands on the nurse's shoulders. Praise to the Lord! And many thanks to you all for the prayers, thoughts and encouraging comments!! Thanks!

 It's the greatest feeling to be able to come out of surgery and walk  8) . Takes awhile to build the muscles back up,took me 3 weeks to get to where I could walk 1/4 mi.

Mind your manners and follow the protocol.  Don't try to short cut your rehab.  Pretty soon, you will be running circles.

Eat sleep and go Fishing  you know the drill. Take the pain meds for now. A good attitude goes a long way. Yes flat out on your back to let everything heal . You got some non original parts in there . Factory remanufactured . Be strong my friend.
We have a lot of good boys and girls in harms way
lets all support them and their familys.
