    A little good news...sort of

    Finally had an appointment with my surgeon after a month She said things are healing well, BUT I was a goof ball for driving to SoCal for a turning day with Vaughn...too much time with the incision site on the backseat. I told her that mentally, it was huge for me..."I know...but I want you healed and happy...not just happy and you’re not healed yet!!!" No more lifting my arm above my shoulder, no more messing in the backyard...no swimming, but I can sit in the pool chair. She's worried about inflammation at the site resulting in chronic pain for years...guess I'll listen. No nuthin' until I head back to work June 1st and even then, it's sitting doing audits and a little help here and there. She works at my hospital so my director got the heads up. So I started a little HF today...my wife gave me the "one more move and your dead" steel beam gaze...I sure am glad I have cable!

    Maybe I should wait until after the Doc clears you before I send the planes back?

    BTW, the 220 looks like new, and works even better. The 5 is looking way better than I anticipated, too... Just a tease...

    "One more and you are dead...steel look."

    I think all good wives come with that as standard equipment. Be glad it is there and be a good boy and behave.

    Enjoy anyway,
