I'm going to try this one more time and if my computer freezes or hangs or whatever the heck it is doing again I will take it as a sign that I really shouldn't post this. Maybe the third time is the charm. I don't want sympathy. I just want you to know why I have been semi-absent. Starting last January my DH had back surgery (successful). Came home that night and went back to the ER with urosepsis (MRSA) and spent 5 more days, most of which he doesn't remember. Double hernia surgery a month later. More back surgery (did no harm but didn't help). Prostate removal three weeks ago. Trip to ER a week ago peeing out what his doctor told us today was 1/3rd of his blood, "this" close to a transfusion and another two days in the hospital. He's doing okay now in that department. He's going tomorrow for pain management injections under anesthesia for leg pain and weakness (which the second back surgery was supposed to correct) which will hopefully let him park his cane and walker and once again turn tree trunks into beautiful bowls, etc. He's been a great patient. Now I am looking forward to the nervous breakdown I have earned.
