Dearest Ma & Junie
Extra good news; yesterday I walked about forty steps, of course accompanied b two nurses. It is extraordinary how the strength in my legs has gone altogether.
They say it’ll take two months before I can navigate for myself -
Had a surplus of visitors yesterday. Of course Bing Price never lets go a Sunday without calling, and the boys from my Battalion and my school were all here.
When I get better I plan to go around and see them all before going home.
This morning cleaning time. Now 8:30 am. You are fast asleep & may be dreaming.
Lots of love honey
A big kiss
