Bonnie, you're right. But each baby step is a victory. She will be on her feet walking the hallway later today. More baby steps. Joe

Hello Joe, How very kind of you to keep all of us posted about Sandy's progress. It sounds like she is doing great!!! Have the doctors mentioned when they plan on releasing her? She will be so happy to get to be in her own bed, I'm sure! Give her our love......Keelie aka MichaelaMarie.

The doctors say "as long as it takes." However, Wed. a.m. she is doing much better and the surgeon told her "You're tough!" -- Joe

Praise God she is on her way! Thank you so much for the update, I have been on vacation so I was anxious to hear.
Ditto Bonnie, Gentle hugs and many prayers, I am sure you are ready to get home.
God Bless, Jan

Sandy will leave Baylor Medical Center on Thursday. She's getting stronger every day. Still pretty sore & easily fatigued. -- Joe

Such fantastic news, and aren't you wonderful to post it! It is not unusual to be in hospital for a lengthy stay...for me it was 9 days. It sounds like she is doing a fantastic job of recovering and she is very lucky to have you there. Thank you again Joe, and please send love and hugs to Saundra.
