BREAKING NEWS — Glowforge also makes friendships

Now that I have my second covid shot I can start up again after losing a year plus on a process that had already taken many times more than it should. I am not sure how they do it but they stop the pain nerves somehow without any cutting. They did a fair job before but missed the lowest one at the top of the hips.

Surgery is so much easier than my first time when it was over a week to recover from the anesthetic enough to get out of the hospital. Now I don’t even record time passing and am able to be about within an hour of waking up enough to go home. I hope yours can be that easy. :hugs:


Last year before Covid hit another specialist suggested two more surgeries this would be a total of four surgeries. Two total knee replacements and two Tarsal tunnel syndrome surgeries.

I am trying to do everything possible to avoid the foot surgeries. I asked my new spinal surgeon to get me an appointment with a new group of neurologists. Instead of having one neurologist who never thinks outside the box —- I want a team of neurologists.

I got the appointment. November!!!

No surgeries this year. This year is dedicated to building and strengthening all my lower muscles and learning how to walk again.

I am not looking forward to 2022 and I am very frightened about the surgeries but it would be great to have a life without pain or disability.


Beignets are easy as pie! My mom would get bread dough from a local bakery. Slice it or pull off hunks, poke a hole in the middle, and deep fry it. We would eat it with pancake syrup instead of powdered sugar. I have not had that in years.

Thank you for your kind words. It means so much to me.


What a gorgeous box!

Very happy to read about your determination to build strength. We are all rooting for you!


You got this! Great to hear you’re taking the time to strengthen the lower muscles, that will help immensely with recovery.

So happy for you. Last year I fell and got a compression fracture of my L1. I spent 2 weeks flat on my back that I couldn’t move due to pain. I thought I knew what pain was. Wrong. It too months to function again. Still have trouble, but celebrate every day I can get up into my Silverado. Good Luck, God Bless

There are several of us in wheelchairs in the group. It is always a good thing to have one of us leaving the subgroup.
