Quickie

Saw the surgeon on Monday--Steve got his staples out. Everything looks great. Up to 80 degrees on the CPM. David and Andrea came over that evening and we played the TV version of Scene It. Tuesday was the PT visit--she's pleased with Steve's progress, and will be back next week. Yesterday we started a game of Super Scrabble. It takes forever--we still haven't finished it! Made a big lasagna for dinner. And last night we went upstairs for the first time since October 3 and slept in our own bed. And Steve has his first shower since the accident. He feels so much better.

I'm telecommuting part-time this week, and probably next. Then back to the office for part of the day, at least. Steve will probably start telecommuting by then. Things are progressing nicely.

Hugs and healing energy to Jeff, Steve Z., Wade, Michael, Tim, and everyone else with medical issues. Keep looking up!

I'm glad to hear that Steve's doing so well! Course, it helps to have someone who loves you and is there for you such as you are for Steve and vice versa. Let me know who wins Super Scrabble:) Hugs!

Continued healing Pager rays!

Although it's been an ordeal, surely, it sounds like you've made it as much fun as possible! I'm sorry I'm not local, so I could have visited!

I told Steve that once he had showered he might feel a little less Hole In The Wall, but I don't think that he got it.

Oh yes! That first shower!!! Absolutely The Best Evah!

Last year when I had knee #1 done, I found standing in the shower a bit difficult. Rather than go out and spend money I didn't have on a pharmaceutical grade bath seat, I simply put a cooler in the tub and sat on that. So if Steve's having difficulty standing for longish periods, then perhaps that would help.

Big hugs to you both. I'm so glad it's all going so well.

We have a standing commode that we put in the shower, and I sat on that.

Still haven't shaved though, so my beard is especially fuzzy now. I'm not sure it's ever been this long before.

Ooooh Pictures! Your fans want pictures.

Glad to see you back online. You've made great progress.

I will second the request for pictures of your grotesquely long hippie beard! *hugs*
