I was in the hospital for 4 days because I had a reaction to my pain meds. Then in inpatient rehab for almost a month. I have been home and trying to piece my life back together ever since. I am in so much pain it is unbelievable! It takes too much effort to sit here and type. I hope I have not lost all my dear friends here.

Oh, my gosh, Turtle!! We have been wondering how you are! I am so sorry to hear of all of your pain and misery! I do not know why some get along so well and others don't seem to. Did you have a Baker's cyst behind your knee? Our minister's wife had one and it delayed her recovery something fierce—the pain, couldn't set in a car seat! Keep us posted as often as is comfortable for YOU and KNOW that you are always in our prayers!! Nighty-night!! Hugs, Pat R
