A Clean Bill

So I went to the doctor yesterday, and they said I only have 27 seconds to live. No, no, with a title like "Clean Bill" what did you expect? They said I only had 27 seconds to GET THE HECK OUT OF THE OFFICE! I DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE STILL NOT WEARING PANTS!!!

Seriously, yesterday I again went up to Salt Lake to the Huntsman Cancer Hospital and met with Dr.'s Webber and Randall. Dr. Webber (from what I've gathered, the surgeon who operated on me) told me everything looks like it's healing great, and I can now walk without crutches, and can use 100% of my weight on my leg. Dr. Randall (from what I gathered, the Attending Physician who watched/supervised Dr. Webber operate on me) concurred. I should have concurred.

Good news: Well, that's obvious, isn't it?
Bad news: I'll actually miss my physical therapist, as now our insurance won't pay for him to come over and help. If any of you need a great physical therapist for whatever reason, let me know and I'll send you his information. I've had a lot of them, and Brad's the only one I never hated.
Also Bad News: While the doctors SAY I can walk 100% on it, I still can't. It still hurts a lot and is too weak, though I limp well on it, I want it to be all better already! But, better still than I could have hoped. I just had to find the negative in there, didn't I?

Still, it's better than what some people expected, I won't say who, but some of you who are concerned about my health (weirdos) thought that my using only 1 crutch lately or limping without it has caused more problems. Glad that that isn't the case, I of course know that you're looking out for me and want me around for a long long time, and I assure you I have every intention to be around for a long long time.

Plus it snowed yesterday. What's up with that? Weather, didn't you see my picture of Dane Cook??

Yay! I'm glad you are recovering so well!

The snow was awesome. We needed something to remind us why we're leaving. Thanks, snow!

Cool cool, good to see your leg is cooperating with the healing process. I expect to see you striding around like a peacock in no time. Or is that "strutting". Whatever it is that peacocks do.

Good news indeed. Take it easy though. It's like when they give women a 6 week recovery and we really need much longer. In fact, maybe we never recover.

I was afraid the weather would delay/cancel our flight but it's like Utah wanted us gone. I hate crying but when you do it at the airport it makes people want to help you more.

It's okay if you walk with a cane or crutches or a limp (as long as you are walking)
Glad to hear you got a clean bill of health
p.s. Dane Cook still sucks

Glad to hear that things are looking up. FYI: your cold weather and skipping spring extended spring here in Tucson and pushed summer further down the road, so I am very happy about that!!

did you secretly record your sessions with brad so you can replay them later?
