  • Thanks for your kinds words. It does suck loosing mom, but she had 2 very good years in assisted living where everyone there just loved her. She never had to be a stroke victim or live terribly and we got to say goodbye.
    That makes sense with the range of motion because I haven't had any real range for months. I can actually stand on my left leg without falling. Prior to surgery it was too weak. Feel very sore still in neck muscles, but think the first week is probably the worst.

  • Every week after surgery I could look back and see the progress I made the week before.

    Glad to hear there will be progress. Seems if I am upright too long the neck muscles start screaming at me. My sister brought me to the hairdressers today for a shampoo, was soooo wonderful. I have long hair and usually wash it every day, and haven't washed it since last Sunday. Now for a regular shower :-)

  • It's good that you're listening to your body. Going to the hairdressers - great that you could do that. You really notice things after surgery that were just everyday events, like taking a shower.

    Take care,
