    But I have heard rumors about the mother ship returning to replace a batch of defective titanium in some of.us.

    That or the glue factory --- thank goodness they finally shared super glue with us as it has saved many wild mustangs and some spineys too!

    From my hospital bed on earth --- 10 days but whose counting? QA/UR? Medicare? The mother ship?

    I think it is part of the natural progression.
    We come her because we hurt, We stay to get answers, We leave because we are better

    That is the pure and simple of it all, nothing more, nothing less.

    What about us? Tony, you know as well as I do, that there are people here that stay on because of the friendships and bonding that has been done. Also because we want to hear more about a given condition or treatment.

    There are some of us that will be here a lifetime.

    Tony, for one, I am glad you stay with us. Even if you may ruffle a few feathers or say things that others may not like.
    You speak from your heart and you speak how you feel. In my books that is just fine

    Welcome to Spine-Health

  • For a while after I joined SH she was a Moderator, and she seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth. Do any of you know what became of her?

    a couple of times.
    A lot of things are going on for her and she felt it was best to take some time off away from Spine-Health
