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.

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

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