I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful encouraging emails and prayers they were a ray of sunshine. Today I was able to go for a ride in the mountains and take a few photographs and it was wonderful. Getting in and out of a car is challenging but it so worth it. The fall foliage is peaking and it was beautiful!
It is so good to be able to get out and about! I have been pretty much confined to the house since surgery. However, everything indicates that the surgery was successful and I am recovering very nicely. My life is controlled by the BLT rule, no bending, lifting, or twisting. So I am pretty limited, I am walking now without the assistance of a walker as of Friday and I have had all staples removed. Wearing the back brace is not nearly as bad as I had anticipated it is actually very comfortable and removes the strain off of my spine.
I am back and I sure missed all of my Flickr friends…Thank you again!
