Default Finally some good news!

Saw the Docs today. X-rays show all the exotic hardware in my spine has stayed in place....finally! One more month in this brace. I start rehab (physical...not Betty Ford ) tomorrow. Doc says 3 more months before he will even talk to me about returning to some form of employment. Its going to be a longggggg winter. I am having some problems with scarring of the nerves and I start a round of Pregnisolone in the morning. Hopefully it workks cause my feet are killing me. If I seem a little short temepered over the next week, I blame the steriods!

Time to seriously start looking for that property in a warmer climate. Wife worked all day at the stable today and this cold is killing her. SO, three more months of nothing better to do than post whore. At least I have an excuse!

So glad you two finally have things going in more of a straight line then wondering in the wind if the last surgey was going to hold.

keep up the spirits, go to alot of boat shows, head to Miami
and most importantly take it easy
Then again like you have not already been
This Cat is trying to keep up with the Big Dogs

Be careful of that stuff.
I spent over 6 months on it. Gained a ton of weight, one of the side affects is increased appetite. Don't remember the others. I'd look it up and find out if I was you.
I do know this, you can't suddenly stop taking it. Depending on how long you're on it, you have to be weaned off slowly or it shocks the body and causes problems.

Glad you're doing ok and that the surgery went well.
Do what the Doc tells 'ya so you'll get better.
