I hope everyone is doing relatively well and that we all have many things to be thankful for on this holiday.

For me, today is day 30 post-op and I am still doing very well. I have good days and some bad days, of course. But mostly they are good, and I think I am healing nicely.

I am thankful for so many things in life, but this year especially I am thankful for a new lease on life that I was given with the surgery I have had. It is nice to be able to walk again without feeling like a lightning bolt is striking me in my back.

Happy Thanksgiving!



  • Yes there are SO MANY things to be thankful for as we celebrate this day. :D

    May you continue to progress nicely in healing from your surgery and your pain days be far and few inbetween.


  • Happy Thanksgiving!

    I'm thankful for many things. While I will likely not run anymore, I am able to walk, work, and will find other ways of keeping in shape. I'm thankful for my health coverage b/c I am able to take a little time and meet a few doctors before making my next surgical decision.

    Happy thanksgiving and peace to all of you who are recovering from recent surgery!
  • Happy Thanksgiving to all. May it be pain free or pain controlled. As I look around, I have so many things to be thankful for. God has blessed my life with so many wonderful people (all of you spineys included) that today that will be my focus. Of course taking meds on schedule will be there too.

    Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you enjoy a wonderful feast with those you love.
