Get Well Addresses As Promised

Hi again, everyone . . .

As promised, below are the addresses to send our get well wishes. Updates as of today: Both patients are doing well. If I understood correctly, Kris can go home for two weeks until all healing is sure and then will return as an outpatient to have the implant activated, followed by several adjustments to the 'system'. I do believe it is the same principle as a heart pacemaker only regulating nerve action in the brain to alleviate Parkinson's tremors.

Joe reported that Jean can come home Friday and will continue recovery and rehab at home. Joint replacement, I understand, requires significant recovery and rehab time. All the poets have offered to "Jean-sit" and give Joe breaks for shopping and errands. :)
