Subject: RE: Help: Good thoughts for Dad
Hey!!! That's great jeff!!! Your Dad's going to be playing golf (sneaking of course) a lot sooner without the leg bit!! He'll be able to walk a lot easier without all that leg pain (I kid you not, your leg REALLY hurts) and make the recovery far easier, not to mention more enjoyable! Like, who needs to limp for 3 weeks?


You're going to hate part of this and love the rest. The first couple days aren't much to speak of, but by Sunday you'll be feeling pretty good and by Christmas, people will be amazed at "how good you look"---and you'll feel good too. I could only tolerate the "driving" thing for 3 weeks, and at 6 weeks, I rode my motorcycle to the surgeon's office for the check-up. And just between us, you can probably tell your cardiologist that you went for a nice long walk on Groundhog Day........say about 6500 yards or so. I'll be thinking of you on Tuesday. Be sure jeff keeps us posted.
