    Merry Christmas and thanks to all who have reached out to me.

    At least, this Christmas, I was not in the hospital and totally out of it as I was last Christmas 2013.

    I went to our local E/R on Wednesday because I have had a head ache for the past 2 weeks. I did not stay because after 3 hours they still did not have any beds available. So I just went home and went to sleep.

    Merry Christmas, Tamena. Been thinking about you and hope you are doing well. Hope 2015 brings you nothing but pain-free joy.

    I'll post a bit in my own thread, but I'm not feeling all that great plus and a little low with the holiday and all. Will try to find some humor in it somehow.

    Love to you - hope every days brights you strength and less pain!!

    I don't post nearly as often as I used to, but try to check-in and read about those anticipating surgery or those who are recovering. So many of you are so witty and funny in spite of problems you are having. This forum was unbelievably helpful to me before and after my surgery because of the caring people who had a tremendous amount of information to share based upon actual experiences. I am a little late for wishing a Merry Christmas, but will take advantage of this thread to wish all of you the best in 2015!
