    1. Lily, the surgery started at 6:pm that evening and by 8:30 the next morining I was sitting up in a chair, eating breakfast. The following day I was up and walking the hallways. I was in therapy for about 2 weeks and since then it’s been great. I am doing things I couldn’t do for more than 20yrs.

      1. Wow that recovery sounds way better than when I sprained my ankle a few months ago. It’s still not normal! Glad to hear that it went well for you 🙂


  3. Paul,
    You are an amazing man and I am blessed to share any of your time! Thank you for the award! Thank you for reading and editing and just being my friend. I am glad that God has kept you here against all odds thanks to the advances of modern and medicine and I am sure a lot of prayers! May HE keep you here for many, many more years! You are a blessing to us all!
