    You've spent about 5 years recovering from surgeries, then. You must be good at enduring recovery periods by now. Is this expected to be the last surgery coming up?

    They couldn't read signs for the deaf, was that their excuse? I thought frantic hand-waving was a universal language.

    One thing at a time maybe? Don't think about everything. Find the doctor first. You'll probably feel better once that's settled.

    With a broken back were you completely inactive? In bed most of the time?
