Fellow Lumberjocks

Got the dressings off today from the surgery. Oh, how we forget the simple things in life, LIKE A SHOWER!!! It was wonderful! I still need to keep it wrapped and in a wood shoe but can take a shower as long as I keep it dry.Thank you so much for all your kind words!

Tom keep your powder dry, the foot powder, that is.
Take it easy and rest. You deserve it.
