    Connie is recovering...

    Hi all,

    I received an email from Leon, Connie's husband. This is what he wrote...

    SHE IS DOING FINE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE PAIN WHICH COMES AFTER SURGERY

    Hopefully Connie continues to recover well. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with her.

    Connie, Glad to hear that you are home! I was wondering how you were doing. I remember those days of being up at 3 in the morning, can't get comfortable! It does get better! I'm still dealing with the shoulder pain, the doctor said that was very normal. Just take one day, at a time. I couldn't concentrate long enough to read a book so my husband would go and get me the trashy newspapers. They are always interesting! Hope things get better for you soon. Theresa

    so glad to see your post

    Dear Connie:

    Even though the pain is bad I was so so glad to see your post and to know that yu are home. 10 days - wow awesome girl and just think things are going to get better as every day passes by. LOL aren't I one to talk but I thought some positive words might help some. I at least was thinking that even though you are in pain that now things have been repaired at least the days of pain are going to be fewer where as before there was no end in sight. Take heart hunny we are all thinking of you and praying for a speedy recovery.
