This is all the special people who had well wishes for my surgery and afterwards as welll. There is no way I can express how my heart swelled with love and gratitude to
all of you. You all are very special and help to remind me why we're a family.

I am doing good, getting stronger every day. It's painful but I hold in my heart the thoughts and prayers you had for me and I go on. Their trying to kill me in therepy but
they will have to do a whole lot more, LOL

Valentine Lady, thanks for becoming my friend.
This past year to the present has been difficult for me. I joined 24 Hour Fitness so that I could go on the exercise equipment and especially for water aerobics. Just two weeks into it, I fell off the stairmaster and tore open my shin. No water aerobics until my leg healed. Just as I was ready to start again, BOOM, I broke my ankle. Again no water aerobics. Then I had bariatric surgery and no water aerobics allowed until the 6 holes on my stomach healed. Now that that has healed, a Basel cell carcinoma was found on my back and after the intitial biopsy, general surgery enlarged it and added stitches with a warning, no water aerobics until it healed. So almost a year has gone by with me being a member of a gym that I cannot use. Anyone want to walk with me, I hate to do it alone. I live in Chatsworth, CA

Hi Rebdee, I'm glad we're friends now, well officially . What part of California is Chatsworth in? I would offer to walk with you but I live in Lubbock , TX. I am with you in spirit. You have. had a year of bad luck. I went through a year like that last
I stayed out of pocket for a solid year. This year I'm spending
my time trying to get back to where I was. I am wheelchair
bound so it makes it hard to tegain what strength you lost.
Quick as I do on I am Las Vegas bound to be with James. We're going to be married. Blessings to you and yours, Peggy

We are glad to hear you are recovering nicely. PT is always rough, but it's worth it in the end. You will be recovered soon and then off to Vegas....right?

Hi Joyce thank you for your warm wishes and prayers. It's been a long road but I am coming along fine. James started a discussion regarding my
surgery. You just missed it and that's okay. Take care. May God bless and keep you, your sister and Jack.

Val, Jack died about 3 years ago. We now have an 11 month old Akita/Sheppard who will be a year old next Thursday. I have no idea who spoiled him rotten. Thanks for you warm wishes.

I forgot to mention I couldn't post before this as my arm had been in a brace, I could barely type at all. But the brace is gone and I am back. Thank you again…

I'm so glad you are doing better. As much of a pain as physical therapy is, I hope it is doing you some good. I pray you will continue to heal well.
