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!

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!
