It's midnight and I just got home. I promise I'll write more and reply to all your wonderful comments and good wishes once we're settled in back home (on Sunday), but today was a good day. Steve started a wee bit of physical therapy today, even before the bandage is off. His doctor says he's doing well, and he's been a real trouper. David, Andrea, Greg, Jim and Ed came by and visited after dinner and he was really cheered up.
I'll be back in the morning. He's getting the bandages off, the brace on and his leg in some robotic contraption that will move it around for four hours or so. And looks like it's coming home with us for a while--a lovely addition to our living room decor.
