I do feel much better this morning. I got a good night’s sleep, and seeing such nice posts from friends is very uplifting. I also think a second opinion would be a good idea. I will do the physical therapy and wear this lovely brace when I’m going to do anything that will possibly cause problems. I forgot to say that I showed her (the surgeon) the TENS unit I bought at MQX – from the Healthy Backs folks. She was glad to see I had one and recommended that I use it as often as I liked. She recommended one to me, so I pulled mine out of my bag. Actually, I’m sitting here typing with it running on my back right now. Whatever happens, I will not let this defeat me. I must keep on quilting. So, I’m off to make a pot of tea and head upstairs. Vince has been waiting ever since I got up, eyeing the door to the studio. There’s nothing better than spending the day with mom, snuggled up on his pile of batting scraps.
