I also invested in some incredible flats;-) Mike has never steered me wrong, so I'm going to be cautiously optimistic.

Good luck to you!

Thanks Allison, that is really helpful. I have never heard of a treadmill desk, that sounds fascinating. I detest heels anyway but it will be really hard to not wear them. I will have to work on that! What flats have you liked, any in particular? When was your fusion?

Here's to keeping out of the OR!
