Tom Langford Recovery
« on: January 14, 2022, 10:50:43 AM »
I spoke with Tom on the phone yesterday - He called me.
He is making progress daily.  He is trying to walk four times a day, but it is too early for distances more than a few yards.  Fatigue is the problem.  And that is normal, especially for those of us who are no longer teenagers.  He has cleared the post-op cough and he is glad of that.

He has a therapist visit three times a week.  He thinks it will be four to six weeks before he is able to get to work in the shed.

Morale is high!

We are going to talk on the phone several times a week and I will keep you posted.

Thank you Bill really appreciate the updates,
And great to hear that Tom is doing well and in good spirits.


I'm gonna go out on a limb with regards to Tom being back in the shed in 6 weeks; I'll take the under on that bet.


All the best,
--Paul

Atta boy Tom! I walked in circles in my driveway for most of a month before venturing out on the street. Good luck with your re-hab!

Maybe Tom needs to get home as soon as possible so he can take his medicine, a cold Diet Pepsi!

Hehe

Get well soon Tom!  Glad to hear things are going well.
