Dave --

Good luck! I know you have done your homework before deciding to have this surgery, and I hope it provides a great deal of improvement. PLEASE take plenty of time to rest and heal after the surgery.

brian, i have the next 6 weeks to wheel myself around the house. I can gaurantee you that i will do everything that i think is right. I dont plan on doing any walking or standing in the shower for the first two months. My girlfriend will have to step it up a notch. We have alot of animals at the house that i wont be much good to. Maybe i can get Carmen to pop over and help with the dogs. maybe my friend Mar will pick me up on her scooter!
Seriously, i plan on taking it easy for 4 months. I dont do any walking now. Just to go to the bathroom and once inawhile to go to the store. i will keep all updated while i am away from work........Thanks for the kind words Brian

Dave -

I have been thinking about you all week and will email you tonight or tomorrow. I wish you the best of luck with the surgery - a speedy and full recovery. It must feel so good to be doing something that will hopefully take away your pain. My scooter and I wish you the very best! And only go to the store WITH YOUR WHEEL CHAIR!! Mar
