Many thanks to all of you who sent prayers and good wishes.
I'm home now and hobbling about. Getting up from a chair is carefully thought out. Mindfulness is the key word (as it should always be) but all is on track and I should be back to my usual vigor (think Three-Toed Sloth) in a couple of weeks.
A previous hospital visit produced an interesting reaction to pain medication - dreams of giant woodchucks - but I had such little amounts of medication this time around nothing came close to that experience. There were no Turok: Son of Stone moments.
Thanks again. All went well. It's great to be back.
