Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Karl's Recuperation

Karl's surgery went well, and he is recovering. His incisions look good, no puffiness or infection. He has been able to begin his exercises and can move his arm with help from his other hand. He will go back for his follow-up appointment July 24, and then will have some physical therapy to complete. He's lamenting the fact that he will not be able to work out for quite a while, but is planning to at least walk on the treadmill to stay healthy! I told him he'll be better off for having it done...and he knows I'm right. ;p Thanks to all of you who have prayed for him and for me; things have been fine. I've been his 'nurse', doling out pain medications and helping him get things or do things he can't accomplish on his own. Did you know it's very difficult to peel a banana with one hand? Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know he's healing nicely.
