Surgery was extensive, but successful. Bill was discharged Thursday evening. He is, of course, in a good bit of pain and gets up and down with difficulty. Riding in a car is painful. His stables will come out on June 10th and that should relieve much of the discomfort he feels when sitting.
He is able to walk with a cane and able to climb steps, tho. He's already taking short walks around the outside of the house several times a day. (My problem is NOT getting him to be active; it is to keep him from overdoing it!)
Despite the pain, he can tell that his legs are working better and it's easier to walk than it was before the surgery. His foot drop is gone as is the sciatica pain down his leg.
We are grateful to God for His healing touch and for your prayers.
