The Day is Finally Here
« on: February 23, 2018, 10:58:25 PM »
Well, Monday I take the plunge. I'm scheduled for resurfacing surgery with Dr Peter Brooks at the Cleveland Clinic. I feel I'm in good hands. I'm anxious, but with each painful step grow a little more excited to get the surgery over with and the recovery under way. Thanks to Pat for operating this wonderful site and to those that I've reached out to for advice and encouragement. I'll be sure to keep you posted as to my recovery progress, as watching recoveries from afar has been so helpful to me.

See you on the other side.
