Three Cheers For Kevin!

On this day last year Kevin was going under the knife and I'm sure a ton of other medical implements to have his tumor removed from his hip. They removed 2/3 of his femur, 3 quadriceps, 1 hamstring, a ton of hip muscles and inserted an artificial hip.

Here he is post-surgery:

I have no idea how he found his zen state. I think he pictured himself on the beach for my sisters wedding. He made it through many hours of laying on his back, days/weeks/months of therapy, the humiliation of having to have help every time he had to use the toilet, wheelchair to walker to quad cane to regular cane and how many Dr. visits, blood counts and scans???

Here's a picture of us in Jamaica back in May:

Living out those sandy days he dreamed about while laying flat on his back! Life is good!

What a difference a year makes! :)
