    After four months of worry and fretting and tears...I took my first steps this morning.

    And I haven't stopped crying since.

    There is a long way to go...but I walked.

    Dear Nancy,

    This is great news.

    I'm very happy that you are coming along.

    I know this has been a very difficult time for you.

    I'm checking in from work so I have no time to write you a recipe right now.
    But if you read this,give me an idea of your favorite protiens and I will develope a recipe just for you

    Thank you Brad...your last special recipe was the best fish recipe I've ever had!

    I like most proteins except organ meats. No yucky liver for me. Larry says I can eat as much cheese as I like though!

    Nancy,

    I am considering developeing a recipe with berries from Huckleberry mountain and pairing it with buffalo from jackson hole.

    The reason i'm thinking of these foods is so you can make something that comforts you.


    What do you think?

    Congratulations Nancy. I feel for ya babe! Good timing to start again. Spring and summer are coming up, this may be the one you'll appreciate more than the rest.
    Itwill all pass and one day you'll look back and even though you will remember it all it will be hard to believe that it actually happened (believe me I know!)
    Best of luck and health as always!!

    Good for you and may I recommend that you look into swimming; it's a gravity free activity!

    Thank you for the good wishes...all of you! I'd be bouncing around and hugging you all like crazy if this were in person!

    Thanks, Isabel, my PT keeps cautioning me to go slow...but at least we are headed in the right direction. And Phoebe...it was great that you looked around my site...that's what it's there for. But I'm not amazing...I'm just stubborn.

    Oh...spring and summer...the months with very little snow. I do look forward to them and to rebuilding my life...making something better out of winter brown.

    Brad...buffalo and huckleberries sound like a great combination. And local too. I'm looking forward to it.

    Hugs and kisses to all!!

    Nancy:
    I would recommend that you take the following supplements to improve and accelerate healing:

    Vit. C - stimulates collagen production; it's everywhere in the body.

    Glucosamine, Chondrointin and (perhaps) MSM - they all contain substances that are integral to joint construction and that your adult body no longer manufactures. A side effect is that you may notice faster growth of finger and toe nails.
