Where does one even begin to tell the tale? Let me start by thanking all of you for your tremendous support, encouragement, prayers and blog comments. Of course, I am only beginning to read those. My brain is still somewhat foggy. After expecting to spend 2 nights in ICU, to have spent 11 sleepless nights there is beyond comprehension. I am grateful to finally have the surgery and blood infection behind me and be heading off to rehab sometime today. By the way, it took an hour to dictate this with Karla typing, just so you know how far I still have to go.
