Spiral ham (heated/glazed on Xmas) - how long does it last?

Hi -

Bought a pre-cooked spiral cut ham from Burger's Smokehouse for Xmas. Arrived frozen. Thawed a couple of days in fridge, then cooked low and slow to heat up and glaze. Now it's one week later and still lots of leftovers ! Burger's instructions state ham is good for 28 days in fridge, then freeze. But is that upon arrival only? In other words, since I opened, heated, and glazed it a week ago I am totally paranoid about it still keeping a few weeks (as opposed to just keeping in fridge unopened). Should I just relax? Never heard of cooked meat lasting a month in fridge, although the ham (and the boneless turkey which has same instructions) is cured, etc.

At any rate, it is one week since cooking low and slow and both ham and turkey taste great and don't smell, etc.

THX for advice! And Happy New year!!
