Well, this is the first time ever for me doing the online thing. It has been fun. I am scheduled for my ACDF at c 5-6, 6-7 (possibly 4-5) on Thursday and it is so good to have it on the books!! I hurt like .... but there is no sense in slowing down because of it. I have had chronic pain issues for almost six years and at least one part of it can be fixed. I am riding my bike, golfing and walking. Even if I have to stop and put my head down from too much pain it is worth it just to keep going. This place has been great because it lets me know there are others out there like me and it give me all the more reason just to do as much as I can. I don't sleep a lot but enough but hopefully after Thursday I will sleep a little more. At least one pain area may be fixed!
So...off to do something else that will leave me in agony but smiling!
Sometimes the pain does get me down but then I remember all of you out there and push myself ahead...it will be sad to hang up my bike for the season Thursday but at least I got this much in!
