I slept very deeply and had good dreams!  I appreciate all your healing prayers & love. I am up and moving around my house just fine, steady as she goes! I am not as tired, drugged, or as “after-surgery“ fatigued as I thought I might be. 

I have plenty of my usual energy AND optimism after such an amazing, miraculous hospital experience!  They treated me like a queen in the privately owned Washington Hospital in Fremont with the famous (in the hip & knee restoration world) Dr John Dearborn.  What a total mensch and excellently skilled surgeon.  He's a prayin' man so I asked him to do a prayer with Eliahu and me just before surgery and he was happy to.  The way he glided into it, I can tell he's probably a leader in his church.  He's just that kind of guy!!  He asked the pertinent & sensitive question:  Who do you pray to?  I simply said G-d!
If you ever need the best doc for hip or knee, he's the one!! 

Taking good care of my body that wants to move with my high energy.  I promise I'm taking it easy and not pushing too much, elevating legs with ice and doing my good PT exercises.  Eliahu is being a total mensch and taking such good care of me.  Yay for my beloved!!

I'm so grateful to each of your for your phone messages, texts and offers of food.  Plenty of love going on here!!  Thanks for being in my life.
