Mile Stones and Small Victories

12_22_aIt’s been four weeks since my facial-reconstruction surgery and today I finally had the wires removed from my jaw. I didn’t actually break my jaw, but it needed to stay put while the rest of my face healed. I should start gaining weight again which would be nice as I have lost nearly thirty pounds.

I touched my nose today with my left hand I call this a small victory. The superman sticker is courtesy of my kind friends Laura and Andy.

  1. Ahh, now we can start smuggling good food into your room and beef you up! (of course, once your infection is taken care of) I'm sure Meg will be making some extra portions for you in the future!


  2. Andrew, start placing your orders now...let me know what you are craving and I will start cooking!! I am thinking a homemade apple pie with a pint of vanilla Hagen Daz?? Or are you feeling more like a steak and baked potato?
    "Honey's Meals On Wheels" is open for business and A. T. is our ONLY client. *smile
    xoxoxo Can't WAIT to cook for you.
    Hugs and Kisses!
    Meg and Hayden

  3. And BTW, the Superman Sticker is RIGHT ON!
    The perfect monogram for you my friend.

  4. Andrew,
    All I can say is WOW!!!!
    That is a beautiful smile my man and you have
    just made my day! We are all so proud of you here, your progress is amazing!Do I see the
    cast off your wrist in that picture?
    Thinking of you 24/7.

  5. Wow! The beard is filling in nicely. Glad to see you have your jaw freed up. I'll be talking to you over the next few days for sure. Now that you can use your arms a bit, be sure to give Deb a big hug from all of us. ;-) (I'm sure you've already done that) Keep up the good work. Talk to you soon.


  6. Andrew,
    really I have no idea what to say other than I wish for you and your wife to have the best possible "hospital" x-mass and that I'm glad you are little by little winning some of the huge challenges ahead of you,you really impress me, I will keep you in my prayers, big hugs from all of us at Galfer. Take care.
    Sandro and crew.
