day +17

It is wonderful to be home. my only problem is fatigue; although i feel stronger today then i did yesterday at this time. even kathy, mypenn home nurse, says that i am ahead of the curve. mygoal is to gain is to gain at least 5 lbs.; and to increase my strength. the appetite is there, but i am only able to eat small meals. i am thankful for everyone's notes and prayers. i will try and write often. love, dr. bob
