care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

Thank You!

THANK YOU to each and every one of you for your get well wishes and comments! 

I am doing very well.  I saw my surgeon & PA on Wednesday and was told I can start bending and twisting slowly at the waist, which is a huge step forward for me (although it is still a bit painful).  I am still walking as part of my therapy, and that is a big help as well.  The PA also told me that by my birthday in March, I should be able to start riding my bike!

I was told I didn't need to make the 270 mile round-trip to the doctor unless I had issues, so basically, I've been released from further check-ups.  This time of year, it is a challenge driving through Glacier Park to get to the doctor's office (or as I usually say, "over the river and through the woods!").  We've seen alot of snow-packed and icy roads this winter.

I want to send special get well wishes to Chasn Paper - she is having shoulder surgery very soon and I hope she has a speedy recovery!  Many years ago I had reconstructive shoulder surgery and the only advice I have is to take full advantage of any physical therapy the doctor suggests. 

The best part of the doctor visit on Wednesday is that I can craft again - yippee!  I cannot sit for long periods of time, so that's when I do my walking and do my up-and-down the stairs thing.

I hope to be posting some new projects very soon!  Again, THANK YOU!
