I are (done been) finnie with the oprattion. pump is out

alls well -
a  really deep subject, that well.

OK - now for real.  There may have been some instant relief for the spinal nerves. Perhaps it is only my imagination BUT there may be slightly less loss of feeling in my right leg. On the other hand this may just be wishful thinking. Well shall see.

Thanks again for all the support.

Off to Pflugherville (yes, I spelled it correctly!) Pflugherville Care and Rehab Facility. It is a skilled nursing facility.

Well how long here.. before they get you rehabilitated....have they a time frame or does it just depend on how you heal?

I hope you feel some better today. How are you doing?

I should think you would need care & rehab, not to mention dental attention, after just saying that!

Any update, JimBob?? 

Far be it from me to correct a spelling of a US city, but the city itself reckons there is no "h" in Pflugerville  ;D

Talked to JimBob today- he was re-admitted to the hospital yesterday for a leg infection.  Seems like one frustration after another for him.  Let's hope this visit is the one that gets JB back on the road to recovery.

APRIL ALREADY!!

Had surgery -again - to remove the device from my body supplying daily Morphine dosages into my spine. The pump had been turned off for a month but the catheter into the spine was still there. Once it was gone small improvements were seen nearly every day - as well as more pain. BUT today I was able to stand in the parallel bars for about 10 seconds on my own. Next - I start walking. 2-3 weeks and I should be ready for full-on rehab and aqua-therapy. The last will dramatically increase my strength in a very short time.

All of your thoughts, including Neil's evil and hurtful barbs, have made me feel good. As for Neill  Oh .... I am planning a special hell just for him. My best bud deserves the best, right???  ;D

JB, have you lost or gained weight during all this lying about in bed? A friend of mine has just been laid up for a few months with a back problem and he has lost a huge amount of weight. He is weak as a result and is just starting to build up again. It seems counter-intuitive that this would happen so I am interested to know what happened to you in this regard.

I hope you get fully fit, and hopefully pain free, soon.

Well, if you put him through half what it sounds like you've had to endure I reckon he's hell will be pretty DamneD excruciating!... I'm betting most of us here will hope we never have to find out if we've got the balls to go through all that; is all I can say!!

Lost weight - muscle mass loss.

I did stand for the first time since Mid or late Feb last Friday and again today. Now that I am on my feet I believe I will progress faster and faster. Getting to this point has been hell but the trend has been the better it gets, the faster my neuropathy goes away. SO........

Had a chance to visit JimBob a couple of weeks ago in Austin.  He looks great and his recovery is progressing (I think he's training for the local triathlon next week :o).  He was in good spirits and looking forward to leaving Austin in the near future.

Thanks Bass.  JimBob's probably so eager to get out of there that he'll have the gas pedal to the metal and we'll see the smoke from his tires burning rubber all the way up here in Canada.
