    So happy for you Debbie! Such great news!!! You must be so happy to be driving and taking long walks with your dogs and husband again. Makes you really appreciate something as simple as walking, doesn't it?

      It sure does patti, I really did think for a long time I wasn't going to be able to do the most simplest of things but now with the help of this site I am looking forward to the future and doing things with the gran children. Reading the forums every day gave me hope and made me realised I wasn't alone. Just wish I would have the confidence to have chatted with people. I really wanted people to know how much good this site does

    So glad you are able to do some of the simple things again.. It's great isn't. It is a long path from surgery to this state of recovery. I am very glad for you. Your surgery was not too long after mine and Patti's. It really is nice knowing that you are not going throught all of this alone. Glad you shared a note. Keep getting better day by day.

      I am doing okay..  I have been doing swimming every evening and working that ankle pretty hard. It aches a little but I think it is improving it all in the long run. My ankle is shrinking a little.  That is a great thing.. I would love to be able to wear some real shoes by winter. I did buy a Bosu ball and I am also working with that a little. And trying to walk more and more.  How about you?? How are you doing?? Hope all is great.
