From the hospital

It's rather tedious typing on the IPad, so this will be short. But I have to brag about something. I had a grueling session with the therapist an hour ago, and he told me I was one in a thousand. Nobody, he said, is ever able to bend their leg as far back under them as I did, not the first day after surgery. Cliff watched the whole session, so I even have a witness. Except for being a little anemic,things are going well. I may get to use some of that blood I donated for myself.

Thanks to everybody who has kept me in their thoughts and prayers. You helped make me that one-in-a-thousand!

I always knew you were an unique wonderful person and now that doctor knows it too. So glad to hear you are doing so well! One in a thousand is pretty special for sure. Keep up the good work. I'm praying for a speedy recovery for you!

Iron pills does the trick. Worked with my mother on the blood issue.

Glad to hear that you are doing great, Donna!

Hey, that is all excellent news, Donna, for sure! Welcome back!

Congratulations on the surgery and now therapy going well.

We all knew you were one in a million.

(Typing on those iPads is tedious, isn't it? Better get the keyboard next).

Keep us updated, as you can.
