Dan checks into JFK rehab today


Dan at San Diego Zoo, BG
(before grey hair)
 
Dan checks in to JFK's rehab unit later this morning for about a week of intensive rehab to get me up and running on my prosthesis.

Sadly, Plainfield Today will miss Monday's Council meeting and Tuesday's Board of Ed -- where word has it the interim superintendent Anna Belin Pyles will be anointed.

I am more than ready for this stint as they will teach me how to walk on this thing and maintain it. Though the doctor said 'a week', I take that with a grain of salt. The good thing is we're finally getting under way.

And when I'm done ... no more wheelchair, no more crutch, no more walker.

Great!

In the theater when wishing someone good fortune before a performance the well wishers say "Break a leg". That of course would not be appropriate under the circumstances but we do expect and know that you will come back running. Don't break a leg"

Great news. Have a speedy rehab and get back to the heart of the matter.

Nearing the finish line...chin up, chest out, and don't stumble too often! Best wishes.
