Well it’s exactly 24 hours post op from the spinal procedure I had done yesterday, Tuesday 1/24/2012. I let you guys know on Monday the abbreviated version of my health problems. I have kept them tucked safely away from the web world and shared only with the closest of friends as I didn’t want to constantly drone on about this and that, and blah blah. Yes I have health issues, but show me a family that doesn’t have at least 1. It’s not what you have wrong or different it’s how you chose to deal with it and everyone has their own right to their own issues.
I am very glad that I told everyone, I will not start turning this into more than it is. But honestly, you guys held me up. Via this blog, twitter, text messages, emails and facebook. I felt so strong going in, and I felt just as strong coming out. To come back and find that you guys said the nicest things, the sweetest things, the MOST hilarious things, it was just awesome. Initially in 2009 facebook and the blogs were a place for me to get away from my own personal drama and the restrictions of my body. I don’t have to run, or pass a physical to be on line. And with the awesome friends I have I don’t have to do anything but be around and be me. I love you all for that. Those who have known me 30 years, those that have been my closest real life friends, and then those who are so very real to me, even though we have never met. I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to escape the physical limitations in my life, to join me in laughing, and hug me thru my sorrows, allowing me to share some of my deepest situations without judgment.
There’s nothing I can do, nothing I can say, nothing I can write, to appropriately express how much you all mean, and how grateful I am to have you as my friend. So maybe this picture will do.
