I'm WALKING without a cane-----It is so wonderful to walk around the garden and the roses are putting on a very fragrant show this year----
I will be very careful for the rest of my life----no digging or twisting-----but I will not complain--just enjoy the fact that I can walk
Last week-end we went to grandson's graduation from Penn State----
Followed Dr's orders----we got out and walked every hour on the 4 hour trip -I was so happy that I was well enough to enjoy this milestone---
It has been a longer recovery this time----and I did get discouraged at times but finally I no longer need a cane or walker---I'm thrilled !!!!!!

Hope everyone is OK and sure wish people would post more--I miss all the old-timers--

Be back later---

Fondly, Florence

Florence what wonderful news! This is a very long road you've been traveling - I just couldn't be happier to hear you are getting the results you'd hoped for. How does it feel to have both hands free when you are up and moving without a cane or the walker, must be liberating :)

And congratulations on your grandsons graduation, you must be so pleased not to have to have missed that weekend!

Florence, how wonderful!!!!

You were always so kind to me when I posted stupid questions, so whenever I go to bed at night I always pray to my Father to bless the kind lady in PA.

Take good care,

Audrey

I am so happy for you, Florence. You have surely had a difficult road and to think of you being able to walk freely (if carefully) again is wonderful! Congratulations. Have a wonderful spring,

Thanks for all your kind remarks-----it is so nice to hear from all of you nice people--

It is wonderful to be able to walk around my garden and smell my lucious roses.

Glad it went well. As you know the 1st year usually does; if anything is going to go wrong, you will feel it in year 2.

I have an appointment at Rothmann in Philly in August. Hopefully I can get rid of the spasms.

Hi Angi---------I remember you --it has been a long time--GW doesn't seem the same anymore---many are now on Facebook--
I won't be doing much gardening anymore since my second back surgery----I'm lucky to be walking but have to be very careful---------hopefully the roses will survive---Grandson's (Max) graduation was lovely---we had a nice time------
My grandson Eric will be graduating this May ------college is out by Pittsburg------long trip------hopefully we will make it-----
Robyn's divorce still dragging on-------hopefully it will be over soon---It has been very painfull for all of us
Hope all is well with you and your roses will soon be blooming------
Thanks for thinking of me----Florence

Florence; sorry to hear her divorce is still dragging on; that has to be horrible on all of you.

How is your back?

Where does everyone go on Facebook?

Hi Roselvr,

Thanks for thinking of me----Hopefully the divorce will be over soon but the pain for my daughter lingers on---It is affecting her health in many ways---she is heartbroken about the loss of her family life--her gardens etc--
As for my back---I'm still walking OK --still have some pain in the left hip which was replaced before the second back surgery.

How are you doing? seems like many folks are suffering in one way or another--

I'm grateful for the mobility I still have----

I hope more folks join us here on Conversations--

I do check on Facebook and see many from GW posting over there----

Take care everyone
Florence
