    Mr. Demeanor

    The day Ive been waiting for for 3 years, thanks everyone!

    Today I had my last Dr's appointment. Almost three years ago I injured my spine and following a fusion surgery last year, a bone graft came loose and caused a serious spinal cord injury. I couldn't walk for three months and feared I might never recover. I still have problems but am able to do things that I thought I may never do again. I was forced into retirement from my career with the police dept. and have undergone a major change in lifestyle but..I can walk. My wife has been incredible and spent every day at the hospital and by my side when I couldn't care for myself. 6 surgeries total and months in the hospital. I don't think I could have handled it as well as her.
    You guys have kept me entertained over the last few years. Ive spent a lot of time here as I haven't had much else to do. Sometimes I had a bad attitude and it was usually when I was having a bad day/week/year
    Some of you have become friends and I hope that continues. As you might have guessed, I have a pretty good New Years resolution. To get on with my life. Thanks to everyone and stay healthy!

    PS. Vagrant, if your reading this don't freak out. My case was a lot more complicated than I could describe here. You'll be healed up soon.

    Good to hear about your health. Sorry to hear about the career. But I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason. You may not know yet, but there is one. Take care brother.

    Great news!

    Keep pushing on. New medical discoveries every day.

    My wife beat cancer and my daughter is the "product" of an in vitro egg donor (chemo killed my wife's eggs).
    15 years ago, neither would be here.

    Attitude is everything.
