Had my four week follow up at Mayo Clinic, Florida this week. All was good and I have been released from the surgeon's care. I would like to take a minute to thank Dr. Kevin Landolfo and his entire team at Mayo Clinic. These guys are smart, professional and compassionate, and have a team approach like no other. I would also like to mention two of the ladies that make this team special: Jennifer Morin and Amy Lykina, both of whom are APRNs. These ladies have made my experience with Mayo and the Londolfo team excellent. I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to Dr Landolfo, his team, and especially Jennifer and Amy. I'm eternally grateful to you all. Thank you!
I am in my third week of recuperation and it's going very well. I am walking between 1.2 and 2.0 miles per day, albeit at a slower pace than before surgery. I continue to feel better each day and am able to sleep at night which makes all the difference in the world. Not sure where I read the first two weeks post surgery was toughest part of the recovery, but so far I find it to be true. Getting my energy back but still resting plenty per Dr's orderrs. We go back to Mayo Sept 22, for post surgery exam. Hope everyone is doing well! Thank you Adam and the community for all your support!

Unfortunately, my surgery has been postponed as a result of the covid outbreak. ICU beds are at capacity right now at Mayo in Florida. Will keep the community posted as we continue to wait additional information. Thanks for all the kind words and prayers.
