Marie and Terry, You have come far. Stay with it. Time is healing. Sending our thoughts, our prayers. We are all with you both. There are usually things that could be worse. No life is perfect.
You have each other and you will heal and do all that you are capable of doing and will be satisfied with your lives together. As we age....none of us can do all that we did earlier in our lives. We are grateful for every day we can still share.
WOW! I take a small snooze from the forum to get some work done on my Argie and what do I find when I return? My favorite AS Mentor-Moderator (no offense to all others who've helped me) and his precious wife has suffered such an unbelievable journey!
Terry & Marie, I'll be playing catch-up with my prayers for you as we watch the Lord heal you completely. He's certainly taken care of you so far, and He'll see you through the rest of the way.
So glad to hear of your progress, and isn't it great to see so many pages of posts wishing you well! Truly, you two are loved and admired in this community. You can bet I'll stay posted more often. Take care!

Hopefully everything stays on the improvment for both of ya'll. I spent 5 days in the Hospital last August for a 'intra dural spinal turmor'? and expected 6-8 weeks off of work for recovery. 5 weeks into it, the Doc' says spend a few hours a day back at the office which was just enough time on day 1 to get canned.
Having said that, Family, Friends and your own positive attitude are 99% of making it through. OK, I guess the Medical community should get more than 1%
Oh, if the Doc's says no lifting, don't assume it's ok to crawn under the AS cabinet and fix a lightweight leaky waterpump...
Some how I think that also falls outside the intent. We are all glad to hear your doing well. My lovely wife was kind enough to take me camping 2 weeks after I had my surgery even though I had been in the bed for the first week after the proceedure. For Labor day we had always meet several friends at a private campground I she knew I was really wanting to go. She drove us down and into the camp, a route that takes a 90 degree turn on the levee of a farm pond (Tire marks on both side drop offs!) and a buddy back the trailer into my spot. I had a dozen nurse maids all making sure I didn't do anything stupid for the two days we stayed. I understand how friends can pull together in a time of need, as it appears quite a few of the Fourm Folks have done. Keep Improving!

We will be moving to a Snowbird friend's mobile home from June1 until November1, basically hurricane season. Joy, joy. Moving to a mobile home next to a large lake just in time for hurricane season.
It could be worse, we could be having to move into our Overlander... I wouldn't mind fulltiming, I just want it to be by our choice.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
