I Can Drive Again!

We saw Dr. Suh again today and apparently I am healing well. He said everything looks good (and the x-ray tech thought I'd had surgery 3 months ago, not 5 weeks, because of how well I was moving around). The doctor showed us on the x-ray where the bone graft is starting to heal and it looks like a faint halo around the screws and rods. Anyway, since everything is looking so good I am good to start work part-time on January 2nd. I can also start driving any time I like (woo hoo!). Unfortunately, I still have to keep wearing the brace for the next 5 months or so (24/7) which kind of sucks!

So that's the update for now. I'll post a picture of the latest x-ray when we get it downloaded from the camera.
