I agree, six surgeries are quite enough. He's got a bone scan scheduled for in the morning. That will likely be better because of all the hip hardware that can scatter x-rays and interfere with MRIs.

If possible, allow 36" clearance between counters/islands.

Re: LBYM Kitchen Remodel Tips, anyone?

Instead of a double-oven wall unit and cooktop, we went with a slide in range and a wall unit with a microwave/convection oven and a warming drawer.

Re: What makes a Bernie supporter?

Putting down the DNC is not a good way to get a Democrat elected.
