It's funny what some of this medicine does to your words. When I brought some pictures of our kids into Michael's room, I asked him where he would Like me to put Jocelyn's picture. He said, "Why don't you put it on I-15 so that as I'm speeding by I can look over and see it!" It was pretty funny, needless to say, we left it on the counter next to him...I don't think is would have lasted on I-15! Well, Mike is as good as to be expected. He is recovering really well from his surgery. It was quite the extensive surgery...he has a fourteen inch incision on his left side that is not exactly comfortable for him. But according to the surgeons he is healing great! It's funny, when come to visit Mike, we are wanting to come and encourage him and show our support, but as we arrive we are greeted with smiles and laughter. He has kept us laughing more during this week then ever. After his surgery, I was very nervous to see how coherent he was and if he would recognize me at first. As I walked in I said "hey honey, do you know who this is?" He looked at me and said, "uh, uh, uhhhhhhh....just kidding gorgeous...of course I know you!" Of course, he can't help but be a Smart Alec....but definitely keeping us laughing! Depending on how things go, he is most likely going into rehab on Monday. There he will stay for three weeks to a month undergoing a very rigorous recovery! Today, Michael will be working with the physical therapist. He gets to sit up too! We are all excited for this. As you can imagine laying on your back for one week would drive you nuts...as it is for Mike! So today is going to be big!
Love you all, and we just are incredibly amazed at the love the support that is pouring our way!
