Message:  went to my orthopedic Dr 2/1, and she says "6 more weeks in the immobilizer" [next appt March 15]...for a total of 3 months...and then I will be released to walk on my left leg...[if all still looks good on x-rays]....she says that I should NOT need physical therapy, and should be walking in no time...she is very pleased with my range of motion & flexibilty in my knee/leg....I found out that the 2 breaks are right below my knee, into my knee joint...but I have been very complient with what the Drs have told me to do/not to do...and they are very pleased with my progress....so I feel REALLY good about things right now....and can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel...
being confined [temporarily] to a wheelchair gives me a greater respect & and a different perspective for those that must live their lives with the aid of a wheelchair...may God bless them...

thanks again to ALL of you for prayers, cards, flowers, phone calls, etc...you cannot even begin to imagine how much you are appreciated & loved...
and to my sweet beautiful Susanna, thank you for standing with me through all of this, for the care & concern you show me, and for all you do/have done/will do...I love you Honey...and I am honored and proud to be your husband.
