Wow! We did it.
First of all, if you are reading this, Lisa is out of surgery and the surrogate bloggers (Mom Cindy and Friend Vas) have managed to get into Lisa's computer.
Aliright,"Lefty" did it!! After cajoling my poor friend Vas into going for a long walk throughout Central Part, we got cleaned up and went off to the hospital. We played cards while waiting for them to call me back. Then off to the O.R. while "Lefty" got the comupence (sp) for any pain that she ever caused me. Then at the end of it all, they put my foot in to a vacuum contraption and now we have to wait for the pathology reports to come back in order for surgery #3 to close up the wound. Now there is alot of waiting for the pain to go away. All of the doctors are very optimistic. -Lisa
While Ms. Left foot won't be dancing for a while, Mom has learned the "New York Dance": scarf on, coat on, gloves on. Go to destination, then reverse procedure: gloves off, coat off, scarff off. Repeat 25 times per day and your are exhauseted if you are a California whimp.-Cindy
If you have a glass of wine, a beer or even a tall cold glass of milk near by (for all of the expectant mothers reading now) I ask you to raise your glass or nearest sippy cup and toast to Lisa and her left foot. They have both been challenged over the last twenty four hours with surgery, pain and medications, but Lisa is already sitting in a chair for the first time. She still needs lots of rest, but Lisa has her spunk back already...no messing around, but we all expected that. She is a trooper! -Vas
