And on we go!

Thank you all for commiserating with me.  I am very disappointed, but, I have always believed that each day is what you make of it, and today is a beautiful day.  I will do my chores, work at some quilting projects, and I’m going out to dinner with my family tonight, so I am going to have a great day.  Pity party over (well, for now anyway 😉  )   I am very disappointed, but I will find someone to help me.  I cannot go through life being afraid to move.  I did a lot of web research last night and already have a couple of plans of action in mind.  So – on we go.

  1. Atta girl! That is the strong, independent woman we all know and love! Have a nice time tonight.
    Thinking of you today.

  2. I am so glad to hear that fighting tone in your (written) voice! We are all here for you. Someone, somewhere has your answer. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Enjoy your family dinner and know you have many blessings even in the midst of all these challenges.

  3. Linda, I too, am glad that you are looking forward instead of believing that all surgeons would feel the same way about your condition and what you can expect long term. Maybe the silver lining in this cloud is that the doctor you do find, who is willing and capable of fixing things, will do a superb job and your results will be ‘wonderful’ instead of ‘okay’. Sending you my best!

  4. Linda, I hope you find some answers, and relief, soon. I have a hard enough time with the intermittent spells I have with my shoulder/back/ribs on the right side, when it flares from annoying to excruciating, can’t breath, can’t move pain. I can’t imagine dealing with that type of pain every single day. What a great attitude…I’m glad you are hanging in there and fighting. Hugs!

  5. You go girl! You have survived – and thrived – through far worse and you will find a solution here as well. You are a strong woman – and a fighter!

  6. Linda – I’m so sorry to hear what happened. I urge you to press on to other doctors. I have a three level fusion, and it only worked the last time because I found a doctor with a unique vision for fusions. And it is because he is a scoliosis specialist. In the operating room, he actually bent the rods as he went, to allow the fusion to follow the natural curve of my spine. Most surgeons fuse straight up and down, which result in further deteriation as you go up the spine. By following the natural curve, the deteriation doesn’t occur. I have been pain free (totally) for 3 years. Please don’t give up. You’re positive attitude will get you there! If I can help, please let me know. I can give you the name of my surgeon if you would like to investigate his method.

  7. You go girl, there was a reason and I believe there is something better waiting for you… Hope your birthday was the best yet….. Love you, Carol is right, you are a strong beautiful woman and I am proud and lucky to have you as my friend.. Talk to you later today… Hugs
