GREETINGS GARDENWEB!!!! I HAVE RETURNED!!!! Doing the happy dance here! Our computer bit the big one whilst we were gone - did the same thing LAST time we left too - so had to send it off to get fixed. We JUST got it back, along with a note informing us there was a T-REX in the works!! NOW we know what happened to the dinosaurs!!

Anyway, home again, 3 weeks post surgery, so far so good. Am completely off Darvocet (first time since last October - withdrawal sucks, BTW) and taking Ultram for pain - but not that much pain left!! I still have some swelling in my neck and am still not as active as I want to be, but I am gaining on it. Every week I can do more than I could the previous week.

Thanks so much for all your kind thoughts. I missed the heck out of ya'll!

Hope Florence is doing well. And everybody else, for that matter!

XOXOXOXOX

It's so good to hear you're home and mending well.
You had me really worried when we didn't hear for such a long time.
I don't know much about meds, but it sounds as if that horizon is looking better as well.

PAAAAGAAAN :) So good to see you! Hey, Ultram is my favorite poison :) Withdrawal is not so bad from that, BTW so you should be good from here on out on that score! Watch the dosage/seizure threshold thingy is an important reminder tho because it's a tad unusual and scaryish if one isn't careful.

I'm so glad to hear that you are doing well :) Man, you should have seen me crossing everything all this time... I'm very sore you know :)

Take care!

thanks ALL! I missed the heck out of chatting with everybody... I am far too glad to be back online - computer withdrawal is worse then drug withdrawal!!

Haven't been out to the garden to check the status yet, beyond a quick cursory glance at everybody. Max the Moo peed on a couple of plants to let them know the Lord and Master has returned... Looks like I have lost darn near ALL the plants I ordered from ARE last spring, which is a tad annoying. I spoke to them about it and they will make it right, even though I am outside of the guarantee time period. I planted lots of plants from RU and Ashdown at the same time and only lost 1 of them, so I think it reflects more on the plants then the practice... having a good fall flush otherwise though!

Pagan-----I'm so happy to see you back and feeling well---

I'm doing OK but still using Darvocet-------It seems the older you get the longer it takes to heal plus our emotional upset with SIL leaving DD while she was here during my surgery-- ( it was so sneaky)

I think that upset kind of set back recovery a bit--(at least that is what all the Dr. say)-----

but I am up and walking using a cane.

Please--- Please stay away from all store displays----
that had to be the scariest thing in the world---

I'm almost paranoid about anyone or anything bumping my hip-----

It is great to see you back-----

Fondly, Florence--

Joe ---I love your waterlilly pictures------make me remember wonderful days on the lake where I grew up----

I had an old rowboat and it was refreshing to reach into the cool water on a hot summer day and pick a waterlilly

thanks for another nice memory--

Glad to read that both of you are doing good! I'm looking at 5 days in the hospital Nov 26th IIRC to go in a clinical trial using med pumps. This will be a band aide until I can get the rods out of my back once we are settled in the new house.

Our computer bit the big one whilst we were gone - did the same thing LAST time we left too - so had to send it off to get fixed.

I wonder if there is something going around? I had 3 computers go down, 2 so far are back online, but the hard drives had to be reformatted with windows reloaded. For some reason the master boot record is corrupt.
