We were serenaded last night by some local Mennonites who came in and sang hymns for us here at the Gift of Life House. It was very calming and soothing. Then we were treated to an incredible thunder and lightning storm later in the evening. It was right on top of us, and I was sure we would lose power but we didn't.
Overall, I am feeling pretty well as far as the surgery goes. No pain, fever or complications. Am having the continuing numbness, tingling and weakness in the legs which is what we are hoping will eventually go away as a result of the surgery. Starting to turn our thoughts towards returning home. It is scary in a way, because Mayo is such a nice safety net next door in case of any problems. Starting to think about and embrace the transitions we will face when we get back. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon. Love, Rick
