Back from the "dead"

Ok, Ok, Ok...I didn't really die, but there were times...

Since my last entry I have gone through two back surgeries, neither of which were major (according to the surgeon). Let me just say that if I put two sets of screws and a cage in his spine, and 4 weeks later put in four more screws to mend a stress fracture (all without anaesthesia) he would consider it major! I'm just kidding about the anaesthesia, but still.

I'm 2 1/2 months out from the second surgery, and I'm to the point of walking without any aids (walker, people's arms, walls, etc). One of my loving daughters said my gait was "Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down" lol But I'm getting better.

I have to get a little mushy here...If it weren't for my wonderful husband, our three wonderful daughters, and their wonderful families (did I mention they're all wonderful?), I would not be sitting here. Speaking of sitting, the picture is of the grandkiddos and me on Father's Day. It was the first time I was able to sit up for any length of time.

Talk to you later.
