Well, I spoke too soon and I should have known better!! I did get a good report from the doctor yesterday and I seem to be over all of the pneumonia and infections but, and she is right, I am still recovering. I must be as strong as possible going into this surgery so that I come out of surgery as strong as possible and without complications. So, after the initial disappointment, I agreed. They want to see me again in two weeks and will check me out again and make another call at that time.
I went to the rehab center 4 days this week and made some progress but not near enough. I am doing well on everything but walking. Lots of work to do on this beginning Monday. I should be able to go 5 days this week. Only one doctor visit with one of the surgeons on Monday afternoon after going to rehab.
So we are still going to be plugging away and trying to get on the list. Several couples that we have gotten acquainted with since here have already gotten listed and have had their surgery and are recovering nicely. A few bumps along the way but so far those have been overcome. I hope to join their ranks very soon.
We are missing our children and grandchildren immensely right now but this is very important so we have to stay focused on it and get it done!! We continue to stay in touch with them via phone and video calls (don’t want them to forget what we look like!!).
That is our update for the week but stay tuned.
Now it is time for me to get caught up with all of you and your blogs! Charley does a much better job on this than I do!!
