Clean bill of health!
I had my back surgery 7 weeks ago and a few days ago I went in for my check up. The Dr. said I was healing great and the back brace could come off! I think he saw the panic in my face and told me it would become a crutch if I did not stop using it. I explained that without it my back hurt and he told me to expect that and I had to build muscle back so start doing things. Of course, he was right and it is not as bad as it once was. He gave me a copy of the xray which showed the nuts and bolts he put in very clearly (I know they have technical names). My granddaughter Mary-Kate thought it was cool. I guess now maybe I can retire and do something! All this finally ended exactly one year to the day I closed my store. Was a long hard year of drs and pain, but it is behind me a future of good times now and some merchandise to still sell from the store....ebay I am getting for some big sales!!!
