Under the knife....

...tomorrow, after 2 reschedules. Right leg will come off above the knee. I just hope I will have enough recovery time to leave Ohio before bad weather keeps us here. Our motorhome sat beside the garage last winter covered in snow, and we are both really looking forward to a winter in Florida for the first time. I'm going to ask the doc for a prescription that says I have to recover on a sunny beach!

Now that's positive thinking! Get him to write you a prescription for Godiva Chocolates while you're at it!

All joshing aside, you'll be in my prayers tonight and tomorrow Richard. May He guide the surgeon's hands and give you strength during recovery.

Here's hoping you'll be enjoying Florida weather come winter time! (Sneak lived in FL when I met him...I lived there five years, then for some reason I have yet to understand, I talked him in to moving back here to my home town after we got married.) Took some gettin' used to though, seeing Christmas lights on palm trees, and running around with the sun roof open during December.

Richard thoughts and prayers coming your way. Keep your positive attitude, it will get you to where you want to go. I know, at the end of February my neck surgery went badly wrong. I woke up as an incomplete quadriplegic, first I couldn't move at all. With a bunch of therapy and prayers and yes hard work, I happy to tell you I'm sending this post from our first camping trip with our granddaughters. I drove, yes there's light at the end of the tunnel. Nothing but best wishes to you. Give them heck!!!!
