I am alive

It’s been a long time since I posted I know! That’s sad enough but I’ve been in pretty bad pain most of the last two years.

I finally had surgery on my neck the day before thanksgiving (it’s not my favorite holiday so there!) surgery went well except for recovery. I developed dysphagia which is difficulty swallowing-and it was so hard eating oatmeal, pudding, jello, and soup for FIVE weeks. Yuk

Some people thought that was a good way to diet but personally I would rather be able to eat and recover.

I would also like to walk, to hike, to play, and to work. Can’t do those things without food, friend.

Now that I can eat, I am slowly getting stronger. I can walk (I’m still a little slow) but with hardly any pain! Yay!

And I want to put some ideas on paper about upcoming New Years resolutions. I want to walk, hike, bike, and play more in 2022 than I did in 2021! How’s that for resolutions??

(I know you want to see a picture of my neck X-ray). It’s so cool.; it shows three discs replaced and a piece fused (see the screws) to my neck. The bottom picture is my incision right after surgery so you can tell it’s getting better already, yay for resolutions!
