They do match!!!!!
Hello Everyone - A great big thank you to everyone who wished me well on my knee replacement. And, especially to our little Valerie. I have never, ever been as astonished, surprised, astounded, etc. as when she walked into my hospital room not long after my surgery! God could not have sent a better angel! She is surely one of the most special people I have ever known and to think she is just 21. We will see really great things from her as she continues her education & begins her career. She really had to do some digging to even find me........talk about tenacity! Anyway, I really cannot describe to you all how good it felt to have her come see me. The card and gifts were so typical "Val" and I got a kick out of them. Thanks to Dominique and Maureen both for their personal messages they had Val include in her card. This is truly the reason why our club exists - it is a holistic approach to supporting each other. Valerie is just as cute as you can all imagine and I hope to get together with her soon and also meet her mom. They live about 20 minutes from me (unless like Val you get lost)! My surgery went well and my legs match for the first time that I can ever remember. I have to keep going to the mirror to look. I thank each of you from the bottom of my heart for the kind words, good thoughts and prayers. I hope this conveys how much each of you means to me. Collectively, I don't believe you will find a finer group of people anywhere! God bless you all with His goodness.
