Sophie is doing incredibly well. Beyond my hopes. It's remarkable.
Everyday has been a big leap forward.
She's basically completely self sufficient now, with the exception of
tasks that involve bending over, which aren't a lot, and carrying or
lifting anything over 10 pounds. She still has pain and is taking

yesterday. I ate a lot of starchy comfort food at the hospital but

I'm so incredibly thankful it has gone so well. We go to St. Louis
Thursday to see the surgeons nurse for a follow up and X-rays.
