Just a short note to let you all know what was said. He said I was doing great, he took me off all meds except for the dreaded coumadin . He has released me to return to work but with a weight restriction of 15 lbs. The soreness is all but gone and I feel great. So it is off to work next week. Not bad for just 7 weeks post op. Thank you all for the prayers and the good thoughts through out this ordeal. All of you will continue to be in ours.
