73 Degrees

In two weeks I have increased my knee bend from 65 to 73 degrees.  I may be able to drive soon.  I tried to fit in my truck when we got home this afternoon and while it is awkward getting in and out I do fit in the driving position.  My knee bends enough that my foot can now hover over the pedals and move in between the brake and gas.  I shall have to practice soon.  It has been over 3 months since I've driven!

Yesterday I had an appointment with the neurosurgeon again.  Still, nothing can be done until after the first of the new year because I was off so long for my leg.  I have an appointment for a new MRI followed by another appointment with the doctor just a few days into January.  Then maybe I will finally see a light at the end of this particular tunnel.

Are you getting ready for the holidays?  They always sneak up on me (mainly because I try to ignore them).  This year we have been mainly shopping online, so almost every day for about 2 weeks we have come home to a package or two.  I'm almost done, yet I never know what to get my wife.  She deserves diamonds for taking care of me but I'm sure she doesn't want me to spend that kind of money.  She does the finances so she would find out right away.  She says she'd be happy with a practical gift but I'm not buying it.  I'd be happy to listen to any other ideas!
