Many will remember the Hell my wife and I went through back in February. We hoped to get everything fixed right away but it didn't and couldn't happen. Fortunately she has been getting stronger and yesterday morning had some surgery. We expected it to be surgery in the morning and then come home in late afternoon. Surgery went fine but a slight problem kept her in the hospital overnight. Now I am happy to report she is once again home and doing fine. Maybe now she can get out there and get the rest of that wood split and stacked. Just kidding of course but really she is doing much better. Before this all happened one of her daily things was a 3 mile walk. She is back to walking up to 1 1/2 miles, or at least was before the surgery. We don't expect to keep her down much more than another day or two and she'll be right back out there. So a big thank you to all who sent us your well wishes and many thanks for all the prayers. I now have a healthy bride rather than a sick one. Wait! I guess she isn't a bride any more. We're coming up on 51 years of marriage in June. Looking forward to it too.
