Surgery #4

Andre has survived the fourth surgery on his knee! He went in at 3 pm today and we were home by 6 this evening. The doctor removed a lot of scar tissue from inside the knee and was able to bend it almost all the way back. He seemed pleased but did say that he may have to do another of this kind of surgery again in a few months. An ACL repair may follow that.

So, now he's in for some intense physical therapy, work-outs every day on a bike, and 6 hours a day on a machine that automatically keeps his knee to follow!

South Carolina

This evening saw us back home after five wonderfully restful days in South Carolina. Some very kind friends lent us their condo in Garden City Beach, where we enjoyed beautiful weather and plenty of rest.

Andre even dipped into the rather chilly sea!

One afternoon Andre lost his wedding ring in the sand. We rented a little metal detector and lo and behold... was found!
