Surgery next Tuesday
Now, there is something I feel I need to clear up. Several of the people who I have visited with have made the comment "they did an amazing job on your face!" For the record, THEY DIDN'T DO ANYTHING TO MY FACE!!! I've always been this cute and, even while unconscious, I'll never let any plastic surgeon mess up the original product. The plastic surgeons wanted to peel my face off and put in several plates. I was too sick for them to do the surgery and, apparently, I had other plans because all the facial trauma healed before I got better.
It's a very good thing that they didn't get to do the surgery on my face because Sarah keeps insisting that they were going to make me look like her. While she is beautiful we certainly don't want the world to get confused about who is who.
Therapy continues to go well and hopefully the upcoming surgery will be the last. I'll update you all next week as to the results. Since the surgery is happening on Tuesday please do not get upset if the update doesn't happen until Thursday. I'm just not sure how well I'll feel on Wed. Thanks again for all of your support!
Keep up the good work. You are constantly in my prayers, and of course, you will be when you are having your surgery on Tuesday. sounds like you are working miracles as usual.
You are a kick! :) Glad that you still have your wonderful sense of humor! You are in my prayers and I will be especially thinking of you on Tuesday as you will be in surgery. Keep on keeping on!

HA! Looks like your self-confidence is undiminished.

Hope all your days get better and better...good luck Tuesday :D
It sounds like you are coming along fabulously! I met your mom at the Burn Unit when I was there with my husband. His name is Mark Gray and he is also coming along great. As I write this, he is traveling to the far side of Ohio to purchase a motorcycle with sidecar so he can get back to riding this summer. He is also an avid bicyclist and is looking forward to returning to that. If you haven't seen it yet, there is a good program on at 9 pm on discovery health. It's about people who have amputations and the process of building their prosthesis - quite inspiring - just like you and Mark! I've enjoyed reading your blog - you and your family are in our prayers.
Mark spends a lot of time online, feel free to email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep the faith - apparently life has a lot in store for you!
Humor is the best medicine, and you certainly know how to use it.

I'm sure it will so great to be back in your own home but it's wonderful you have such a great family to be with while you recuperate.
