An observation

When my RV got a little bent up on one side, it took six weeks to get it back - six weeks of living in a motel waiting and waiting, mostly for parts to get in. When all the parts were in, it took about two days to make the repairs.

These body mechanics (doctors) are very similar. It takes waiting to get on the schedule, waiting to get any testing done, waiting to get results back. Finally, it takes about two hours to get the body repaired. The only thing is that RVs have a much shorter post-repair rehab time than I do.

Maintaining a parts inventory for other than commom items is expensive for the dealer. So we wait.

The human body repair time is the easy part, the rehab part is the time-consuming one, but it has to be done as well. Listen to the body doc and put the necessary time in Stiles if that is what is recommended. Sounds like all went well, nonetheless!!

Takes the same time to fix the Monty as it gets older, but I seem to take longer to heal as each year goes by. Take your time and totally heal, our prayers are with you.
