Jennifer - you are absolutely right. This is the first week that I have felt really good enough to head out into the world other than work and OS appointments. I went out to dinner with a group of friends on Tuesday night (dropped off at the door, crutched from the bar to the table & out!) and Saturday night I went to the mall and for coffee with a friend of mine who was nice enough to push me around all night in the wheelchair. I think it is really good for me mentally to feel somewhat "normal". I admit that I am still very nervous about the ice and snow in combination with crutches, but luckily we have not had any real accumulation lately. Best of luck with your surgery!
