Oh, My Goodness, what a difference a day makes!!!

It’s not even 24 hours post surgery, and not only do they feel pretty good, but they look fabulous, no?!!

Our thanks to Naomi for her photojournalistic ability – I have to admit to some sibling jealousy here over Barry & Melanie’s matching sister & brother outfits; so chic, so elegant, so exclusive – I believe it’s the only time we’ll ever see Barry in a “one size fits all” garment, so enjoy while you can.

Both patients got a good night’s sleep, and the doctors are very pleased with their stable, all-systems-go recovery thus far – Ultrasounds show only positive results. Both are a bit tired and sore, but otherwise resting well and enjoying being on the other side of their surgeries.

Melanie will stay overnight again today and go back to Barry & David’s apt tomorrow – Barry will go home either Friday afternoon or Saturday, as scheduled.

That’s all for now - Another post tonight and/or tomorrow morning.

Our thanks to all of you, from all of us.
