Just a quick little update to let you all know that your prayers and well wishes were so very appreciated. I am recovering quite nicely and was up walking one hour after surgery. I am two weeks into my recovery now and walking without the use of a walker or cane. I take the cane with me when we go out, just as a safe measure. The hardest part of my recovery has been not being able to go outside and see my roses each day. The pain has been quite manageable and although I do not like the feeling of being tired, physical therapy would not be possible without the help of pain medication. The Doctor and therapist all tell me I am a "rockstar" in regards to my quick recovery. Hoping to hit the trails this fall and get some hiking done. Thank you again for your kind emails and the many prayers.

I know this will not be an easy peasy recovery but I will get to enjoy looking out the window of my bedroom and seeing my rose garden and that will be a wonderful delight.
