Yup-the next entry is from the patient herself.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Nervous as I was going into surgery, I am so thankful to have made it through surgery so well. I'm sitting up in my bed right now - I'm happiest in my bed still, although I do get up for short periods of time as well. Like Ardie said, my legs continue to be quite painful but hopefully that will clear up, too, as my body gets stronger. I'm delighted to be able to chat with you again. I don't do much yet, except read, visit, and sleep, but that will improve, too, as the days go by. God is so good - He's so good to me!
