So, I've been home from the hospital for about a week now and for the most part I have been feeling good. It will be awhile before I can walk again, but I am getting good at hopping behind a walker and using a wheelchair. I had three surgeries while I was hospitalized and I lost part of a leg, but things could have been much worse, so I am grateful to still be here. I have a lot of physical therapy ahead of me, but I have a great (though mildly sadistic) physical therapist and a wonderful home care nurse looking after me, as well as friends and family who have been very supportive. I also have endless Percocet, though thankfully my pain level has been pretty tolerable and I haven't had to take a whole lot of it.
I would like to thank all of you who have kept me in your thoughts and prayers and who have sent me notes or left comments and well wishes on Donna's journal or elsewhere. I would like to ask you to continue to pray for awhile longer. I know
