More Pictures-- He's healing!!

My sister and my daughter Anne as we waited during Rich's five hour surgery just 48 hours ago.

We kept up a nice calm front but in reality we were all terrified.

Here's Rich today with Suzanne, his compassionate, gentle, and very skilled nurse.

And with Suzanne's help, he's off!!!

Four times today back and forth, down the hall and back, as well as several hours of sitting up in a chair.

I had to quietly hum the Rocky theme song.  He is not going at a snail's pace or with little baby steps either.  

Niece and nephews offering moral support and cheers!

And flowers for Uncle Rich!

He's even posting on his Yahoo group for achalasia!!!.....and checking out my blog:-)

 When the kids are getting restless there's nothing like an empty lounge area and chairs with wheels.

They were having a ball.

God is good!  Thank you for all the prayers!!!

(Sorry, the text/ photo coordination is getting all mixed up on this post.  Not sure why.)

Along with prayers having family and friends who are so supportive helps so much! I'm sure he's on his way back up to the top!
