Well, are experiment without the internet at home is over, and it has failed. Internet access is more expensive than it needs to (or should) be - but it has become an indispensable tool of the modern community. Wifi is nice, but when you're toting a baby - it is woefully inconvientent to rely on the library, Safeway, or McD's to find out what's going on with friends and family. So, we ponied back up - and are trying this thing again. Hopefully this will mean more pictures of the cute one - I like it already!
The leg is doing well, and am two weeks away from returning back to shift - full duty - assuming in the next 14 days I can get my running stride to work properly. I still struggle with stairs and running - but most other leg skills are doing well. Just 3 days ago I spent 2 hours shoveling snow with no issues. In other good news - the insurance company decided to pay in full the helicopter expenses, as well as my surgery and stay at MCR - a combined $74K and change. The internet is good - God is great!
