    welcome home, Bruce! What a great xmas present.

    17 holes? Wow, one more and you could have became a golf course (sorry, that was bad).

    In spite of it taking 9 hours and painful recovery, did things go well?

    I pray for a speedy recovery!

    Dear Bruce,
    sorry to hear that the surgery was so long and that you have had a rough recovery. But, what a blesssing to come home on Christmas day. Now you can rest and recover at home. Despite all the complications, was the surgery successful? I'm praying for a speedy recovery and a healthy new year for you. I like your motto.."Never, Never give up!!"
    God Bless,
