Keith and I went for a drive this afternoon and then I wandered downstairs. With my music playing, I dived into one of the scrap bins. I’m not one to cut all my scraps into predetermined sizes but I do like to cut more than one at a time … I’m going to aim for 3 with this round with the first one being my Easy Flock of Geese.
I want to thank you all for the good wishes and prayers … I may have made my surgery sound more imminent than it is … it was originally scheduled for Dec 19 but delayed after an abnormal EKG … I went through a couple weeks of testing before the cardiologist cleared me and the surgery to relieve my spinal nerve compression will be on Jan 12. I’ve been dealing with this for 6 months now and at this point I’m just anxious to get it fixed!!
Mary, thank you for another year of interesting and instructive blogs. May you and Keith have a wonderful 2023!
The surgery is something you have prepared for and will be fine. The scraps will be lots to go through but not overwhelming!
Praying your surgery gives you the much needed relief. Having kits cut out will make your recovery go faster.
January 11 will mark 31 years since I had emergency surgery when I developed a foot drop due to a nerve compression of L5S1. I feel your pain and know how your are looking forward to getting relief. If your doctor suggests getting into the swimming pool, do it. I do not swim and am actually afraid of water, but finally took the advice and joined the “rusty hinges” class at the Y. I ended up taking the classes for two years and know that is what helped me. I wish you the best with your surgery and a very Happy New Year. Thank you for all that you share with us!
We’ll be thinking of you on January 12th!
I hope your surgery goes well and that your recovery is swift and smooth. Sending warm wishes your way.
