Hi Dianne, first, so glad that your health is improving. That is definitely great news.
Happy wife is supportive including buying you new shoes. Might I suggest a token of appreciation for the shoes? It can’t hurt and may bring you even closer. You may have read a post about the saying taking the old “ Happy wife, happy life “. And bringing in “ a happy spouse is a happy house “. There are two spouses in a marriage. Showing appreciation for her gift to you is nice and probably unexpected by her. Hugs Bobbisue J
