Fast forward a couple of days...
I am nearly done with the crutches, sports fans! I used them to hobble around most of the day, yesterday, then ran Soccergirl's practice for an hour (ably assisted by the 16 year old sister of one of her teammates, thank you, Jessica!).
Additionally, I have been off of my pain medication (special shoutout to the producers of Vicodin)for almost 48 hours! Woo hoo!
Today, Mrs GF went out and picked out a new refrigerator, went to the mall, Lowe's, and the supermarket together... I even drove.
As I am sure that you have figured out, my point in telling you all of this, is that your faithful correspondent is truly on the mend.
Once again, thanks for the prayers and well-wishes... clearly, they worked!
Big hugs, high fives, kisses, and slaps on the ass to all, as appropriate (you get to pick which one you get!)
