Earlier in the day Pete Lopez - a physician's assistant for Dr. Ledoux's office - stopped by for a visit - as did one of the surgeons, Dr. Chrysopoulo. Both were very encouraging and told me I was progressing perfectly.

Before surgery the doctors warned me I would feel like I was hit by a Mac truck. So, when Dr. Chrysopoulo asked, "How are you feeling?" I jokingly answered, "I now KNOW what it feels like to be hit by a Mac truck. It HURTS!"

He laughed, and as I said, "Maybe tomorrow I'll feel more like I was hit by an SUV!"

Another day over, another day closer to recovery!
