Good morning! Today I saw the neurosurgeon and he took out all those stitches. He also gave me permission to drive!

The pictures are from before surgery and then the day after surgery. I was surprised at the divot! I'll get to have another MRI in 6 months.

Yesterday we went to Menard's to look for some tiny screwdrivers. We walked all over and met some really nice people. And if course, you buy candy at Menard's. 

We had lunch at Red Robin. It was perfect. It sure feels good to get out. 😁

Yesterday was an amazing day. Mike, my brother, stopped by and took me mall walking. We talked about our kids and pineapples and weather and surgeries. We looked at giraffe scuptures and tennis shoes.

And then last evening I got to see my knitting ladies and that was so good for me.  

My recovery is moving right along. I get to see the neurosurgeon on Tuesday and get more questions answered.

Cathy's doctor appointment was good.  We saw the pathology report and the meningioma (tumor) was Grade 1, benign.  All good news.  Cathy had another good night of sleep and is alert during the day.  We have gone to the grocery store each day since release mostly as a place to walk which was on her discharge orders.  We are going to spend the weekend watching the snow storm with Joe and Lindsay and the grandkids who are bringing over lunch today after piano lessons.

Cathy just keeps getting stronger.  We went to cub yesterday and she walked about 30 minutes. No problem.  Today is a visit to her regular doctor and a stop at Target for more walking.  We have such great neighbors and friends.  Thanks to Cindy and Jeff for the fern and the wonderful Dark Chocolate/Sea salt caramels - they are awesome.

Cathy's first night in her own bed was great.  She was happy that no one came in every hour and asked her to squeeze their finger, push and pull their hands and what the date was.  All she really wants right now is to shower, her hair is gunky but she can't wash it until Sunday. Joe brought over a "wedge" for the bed since she has to sleep at an angle and Bob brought over some home made soup.
Lisa brought Oreos and a cute shirt with buttons so she doesn't have to pull it over her head.
