    Same to you, Melissa. We have a lot to be thankful for... I hope you can enjoy yours as you continue to heal. You have so much to look forward to, but it's baby steps that lead the way. Blessings.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. I think it's a lovely idea for a holiday - it's good for us to look at what we have and feel thankful.

    That is my time frame as well . I am giving myself a full year to recover from these 5 surgeries. I am so hoping that I do not need shoulder surgery.

    Thank you Jennifer for your warm wishes as well
