For those of you who sent kind thoughts to Mike this morning, thank you. It must have worked. He's home and his surgery could not have gone better. He was into the doctor's office by 9 a.m., and I was driving him home by 11:30. When they wheeled him out, I was surprised to see how awake and alert he was. He's home now, hobbling around the house on his crutches, but mostly laying on the couch with his foot elevated. So the hard part is over, and now the even harder part, his recovery, begins.
