    Happy Thanksgiving

    To everyone on this forum from America - Happy Thanksgiving.
    To all the post-ops, take it easy with the cooking! But enjoy the day thoroughly. I know this has nothing to do with Scoliosis, but i just wanted to send happiness.

    Happy Thanksgiving, to all of my forum friends!! I'm grateful to have you - I don't know how I would have made it through the pre-op and post-op times without you!! Your encouragement and support, and all I learned here, made it do-able!!

    I'm thankful that I returned to the forum, and had the pleasure of meeting even more people. I still remember the day I found this, it will stay with me forever as well as many of you.

    Best wishes to all,

    SO happy to have all of you! It has made a HUGE difference with my recovery! It helps the most as you get further and further along and people see you as "recovered", but you know that you still have a ways to go.

    I haven't had my surgery yet, but can't begin to say how thankful I am to have found this website. It is such a relief to know that I can talk to people who have/ are going through the same experiences. I know I'll be on a lot as my surgery day approaches!
