"How is Mark doing?" --- wewally

Spider catching a flyThe first seventy-two hours after his surgery were pretty rough, but Mark becomes more spry every day. On day four, he went off the heavy-duty painkillers, and by day six he felt well enough to drive to the filmmaking class he's taking at Ohio University.

He's still moving very carefully and is barely back up to light duty. However, his good humor and interest in the world are back in focus...just like this photo of my pet spider and its massive lunchtime fly.

So glad to hear the positive news! Remember, "you only get once chance to heal well." Think of it as an investment, and give it at least as much time as the doctors say. Keep up the good work (photo AND healing).

Mark is doing very well and I expect it is because you live a great life, eat great home grown food, and know your limits. Congratulations on all going well.

Sounds great that Mark is up and running! Might be a good idea to rent a splitter this year if you are doing firewood.
