At last, news of fusion underway!!!!!



  • That is the best news ever!! I am so happy for you!
    The best Christmas present we could ever imagine for you!
    So, take it easy and don't do to much this holiday season and continue to improve.

    We have some good news too! There is a group of people in Florida called LIHEAP that help people with electric bills. They paid 2 months of Jason's bills and gave him 2 huge bags of toys for his boys and also gave him some gifts too. A new fishing rod and gift cards for food and also to a shop called Target. He was completely overwhelmed by their generosity!

    There really are some loving, giving people in this crazy world of ours!

    I wish you a Happy Christmas filled with all the people you love and a New Year filled with hope.

  • You must be so relieved that things are moving along just as they should be. Santa brought the very best present you could have early. I hope we hear the same news on Jan 25.
  • I'm very happy to hear about your fusing and know how much relief you feel when you know it's happening.

    Keep it up and it is indeed a time for celebration!
    Take care,
  • Great news! It took me a long time to start fusing, 8 or 9 months and it is so good to hear those 3 words: "you are fusing", woo hoo!!

  • Glad for you Jelly! Merry Christmas
  • Been very busy with going back to 2 jobs. Yeah it's a lot but I seem to be handling it ok.

    My last visit (1st week of Dec) the surgeon showed me my xrays and there is fusion beginning in the disc space. Yay!!! He said that at my 3 month checkup, he will start me on exercises.

    The success of the surgery was my Birthday and Christmas presents. Now I just need to get back to what I miss- Making lace.

    Merry Christmas to all of you and I hope that next year brings you less pain and success in surgeries.

    Hugs to all, Dot
