Satori sitting TALL!


Satori has been home from the hospital two days now and today she went out in the back yard with her dogs for a little bit.

I can not believe HOW TALL SHE IS!

I think she is almost 4 inches taller than before the surgery. She is doing very well, still on loads of pain meds and Valium for muscle spasms, but getting better every day!

She has continued to receive a few postcards every day gets so excited when the mail man comes. We've been slowly going through the pile from the hospital and plan to post pictures of some of them soon.

Thanks so much to all of you who participated, it has really made her feel special :)

  7. She does look good, for surgery being so recent! She also looks like she is sitting straighter in her chair, too!

  13. Satori, you are "special". You are very brave with a very positive attitude. Many people can learn a lot from you and the way you approach lfe. So glad you're home and I bet you are especially happy to be with your dogs. God Bless, honey.

  16. Hey Tori, if you are taller now, does that mean mom has to get you some nice new clothes? ;)

  17. Tori,
    We are so very proud of you. I know the pain is rough I have had two back surgeries, but 1/2 as big as yours. I am so very proud of you! Oh my 4" inches I am jealous I shrunk 2" inches, but I am old..ha ha! Keep up the great work and look for a fun package to pass the time.
    Love and prayers to you and your family,
