Penny Update!!!

Good morning, dear friends!

A while back, many of you sent cards for my dear friend, Penny, who had badly broken her leg. I've never seen so many beautiful cards at one time! Thank you, each and every one, who sent cards and post cards with so many wonderful well wishes.


I received this update from Penny, and thought I would share with you!

******************************







Hey, Pat!
I deliberately waited until after yesterday's doctor's visit so I could report an update, First, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the visit and lunch. Please promise you'll come again, and this time I'll treat.
Next, I have to tell you that later in the evening, I sat and read the additional cards you brought in the cute basket. What can I say. I would be hard-pressed to pick a winner. It was a continuation of the cards delivered while I was in rehab--cute, creative, beautiful, clever, on and on. Of course, I also enjoyed the words of encouragement and am ever thankful for the offers of prayer. Please, please thank your bloggers for me, and thank you, Pat, it was a very dear thing for you to do. I am so blessed.
Doctor's Update --
Xrays look good. The bone is doing what it is supposed to do. I have 6 additional weeks of no weight bearing. Then 4 to 6 weeks of gradual weight bearing and therapy. I can begin on my own 3 or 4 times a day trying gently to get the knee to bend. Doc said if the knee hurts bad enough to required pain pills, I'm doing too much. By my calculations, I should be bearing full weight by the start of school in August. We will see. Please keep praying for healing.
And there you have it.
Say hi to Stan for me!

Love ya

I will keep all of you updated as we get information. Again, thank you for helping brighten this wonderful lady's days. She is such a blessing to so many of us - it was fun to be able to bless her right back!!!


Hugs,
Patti J.
