Congratulations, Malsgal!!!! I sort of know how you feel. About a week ago, I started mowing the lawn again. My husband and I have shared the duty for a while. He does the hard stuff, while I do about a half acres worth behind a self-propelled walking mower. It feels good to be useful again!

Way to go Stella!    It is amazing just how good these recovery milestones feel.

Wow, that is great!  My milestone is following the vacuum cleaner around. I don't mow the lawn, my sons job, but I do follow around my Vacuum. I LOVE her!!! Her name is Roomba! Amazing how much of my hair she picks up and the dirt I don't see. My first milestone was when I walked to the end of my driveway after my last surgery. I thought it would never end.  After a year in hospital opening a can of soup was a challenge.  Keep up the good work  Malsgal,  make sure to get the adequate rest need to heal from your next surgery!
