Now, sure, I won't be able to tolerate much here in the beginning because it's been such a long time (translation: for now, I can probably do about 10 minutes an hour, maybe, though perhaps not every hour). But it's a really good start. He thinks I'll be about 70% by mid-June. And he still thinks the injection is two weeks away from full effect (which means "don't worry about my tingly heel").
And yes, Lambeth, I promise not to overdo it or do something stupid (in other words, the nanny stays, for the time being).
Perhaps predictably, in addition to being excited, I am a little nervous, too.
Wish me luck!
