Bob is home!
Bob is home now. He came home last week. He was a little feeble at first, but is growing stronger everyday. He's supposed to get physical therapy, but he doesn't need it that much. Nothing can keep him down! He's already discarded his walker and is walking and talking up a storm. Today, he walked almost a half mile. He's determined to get back to his old self physically and he will. In fact, he'll be better. Mentally, he only remembers the last few days in the hospital, after a 6 week stay, most of it in the recovery room, surgery and ICU. He asked me to fill in the gaps and tell him what he missed. I told him, "not much, just the Super Bowl (which he doesn't care that much for) and the Ice Storm. Outside of that, he's back to the same ole Bob: not wanting anyone to make a fuss over him and rearing to get back to fishing at Reelfoot Lake. I heard the crappie they were catching were huge. He can't wait to reel in a few himself. It's good to have him back!
