Mark's surgery today went very well. He's in a good place both
physically and spiritually/mentally/emotionally. The doctor was able
to do more "fixing" than he'd expected....it was thought that this
surgery might just be more "cleaning up" and "stabilizing".
I/we still don't know exactly what the next step is, but things are
looking so much more positive than just 48 hours ago! Mark continues
to have good circulation and feeling in his foot and ankle. Phew! I am
absolutely sure that all of the positive images of Mark that each of
you have shared and offered are part of the reason for such postive
outcomes for Mark.
I fly out tomorrow very early and finally get to be with him. I think
I'll end this little email mini-series now that we are moving into a
less precarious place. If you want to be in touch with us, we will
probably have email access occasionally over the next few weeks while
we "vacation" :) together in Colorado, and we'll also have our phones
with us. Please don't be shy about calling us---contact with friends
has been life-saving the past few days! And I'm sure Mark would love
to hear directly from any and all of you so he can begin to boast
about this unfolding epic!
