Hi Kate: That was great what you wrote. I was sort of upset again when I found out about the bone grafts, and I said out loud to my husband (or anyone listening) "four more weeks at least of this walker, how depressing." My husband just says "Donna, it is not four more weeks, it is just 24 hours today." That made is so easy to accept. I understood exactly what you meant about the good book and finding peace. I have not found the peace and serenity that I want as of yet, because I am really a very active person and sitting and staring into space (as I do sometimes) irritates me because I feel like I should be doing something. That is just my problem of living with guilt, huh? Anyways, I went to the pool for exercises today and than to my therapist, and he said at least we now know why your recovery is taking so long. It is kind of scary in a way, because know I feel like I have to be very careful because its been over 9 weeks and wouldn't want to go do something stupid, than have to have this surgery again. What I do for my serenity is I make a lot of jewelry, beads are a lot of fun and relaxing. Thanks for your input and I am so glad to have had the chance to talk to you. Bye for now. Donna (p.s. the praying does work.)
