I'm hoping all continues to go well for you! It was nice to meet you; I'll email once I catch up with life on the home front.
May your trip home be stressless and uneventful...

Hi all,

Finally settled in at home. It feels so strange being home! Had a pretty good experience- as well as surgery can be expected. Things got a little more complicated while the doc was doing surgery. I guess my tonsills were fused together and stuck up in my head with archiroiditis. Uggghh!! Just one more nasty thing plopped on my table. This explains so much, but now what?

I do feel better walking wise, I actually walked without my cane when I was finished with surgery. I do have a little numbness in some of my fingers and, well other places. My posture is better and geez, talk about hungry! It must be the steroids I was on, or the hospital food scared me. I can only pray things do not get worse and I can lead a semi-normal life. I stayed at the variety house and it was wonderful to meet others going through similar problems! There ARE LOTS of us!!!

I get to have my staples out tomorrow (all 17) LOL. I dread it..ha ha.

Thanks everyone for your support and prayers- I really feel it helped!
