Since my surgery I have been healing quite nicely. I am not in pain but I feel like a lazy bum. I cannot exercise, lift anything heavy, I cannot clean the house, I cannot bend forward and I cannot drive for 8 weeks. All I do is eat, write, work on my cross-stitch, read my scriptures and do cross word puzzles. I feel like I am not useful at this time nor productive.
I look at it as a vacation...God knew I needed some rest from all my pain and labors and He gave me rest. I am grateful and so happy my spine and shoulder does not hurt anymore. Thank you God and Dr. Sertich...you are the best.
