Hi All- we just pulled in a few minutes ago and I am going to go rest. Everything went perfect and I have astounded everyone, including myself, with my progress. Deb- do not be afraid. It is so much better "recovering" than getting ready. You will be fine. I will be in touch again in the next couple of days. Someone stole my cell phone there so it really blew communication links for me. I was honored to realize everyone was so worried about me. I am really sorry about that and luckily, it was very needless worry.

Thanks- Nancy Joy:D

So glad to hear you are doing well and are up and around! It still shocks me how far 25 years of medical advancement has gone since I had my surgery. :) Please keep us updated on your progress over the next few weeks.

Don't forget to add in before and after pictures and xrays for Susie's scrapbook! :)

I am here, giving you a standing ovation, Nancy Joy!!!

On day six, where you are right now, I was telling my kids about the monkeys and bears playing together outside the hospital window! (Morphine did some trippy things to me.)

You have crossed this first bridge amazing well. Keep going, gal!

Congratulations Nancy Joy! I'm thrilled to learn how well your surgery went. How amazing to be home in 6 days. Take it easy now, and don't overdo things. I'll be watching you and Debbei over the next few months with great interest! I'm so glad the surgery is over for you and you can get on with the business of recovery.

Nancy Joy,

Thank you so much for posting so soon. Reading your note right now made me feel so much better. Get some rest and we'll compare stories in a few weeks. :)

Dear Nancy Joy-- Wow, I'm impressed! Not only were you home on day 6, you were able to type on the computer!!! It was wonderful to hear from you! :D Take care, rest up, listen to your body language-- it will speak to you and let you know when you're pushing too hard. Remember that walking is really good for you. And hearing from you is really good for us! ;) Looking forward to more posts when you feel up to it! Gentle hugs, Susie
