W-O-W it seems as it has been forever since I last made a post….mid June I believe. So much has happened that kept me away…it was called PAIN!!!
It began last April with a small painful kink in my lower back. Over the course of several weeks the pain became more intense and I was beginning to have less mobility. At the end of June I quit my 2nd job (yes 2nd) as the pain was intensifying.
In July I was informed I had spinal stenosis (a fancy word for arthritis) but the pain began to radiate over the hips, lower back and down to my ankles. An MRI revealed a synovial cyst on the spine and pressing against a couple of nerves. After a couple of shots under the trusty advisors of the x-ray machine I finally had emergency back surgery on December 7th. Although the arthritis will never go away I am pleased to say the surgery was a success and I am back in the saddle again Now, I might add here that in retrospect I found some fine fighting words of inspiration by a fellow blogger LeRoy Dean that literally made me fill full again as a writer. Thanks LeRoy!
He that will not reflect is a ruined man.
I will be back on a regular basis…have so much to write about…but until next time …. Remember…
To Follow Your Dreams and Live Life To The Fullest
See you soon…
