It is a cold windy day
I hear the rustle of the leaves
And the sound of the winds.
I look out of my window
I see the tall trees swaying in the breeze
Trying to resist the mighty wind.
But the winds are at play.

There are moments of calm
When the trees try to stand straight.
Before another gust of wind.
sweeps them down.

Sometimes I feel like these trees
Feeble at times, yet
Trying to stand tall and resist whatever
Ails me and be strong.

Hello everyone...

Thank you all for your good wishes. I am on the road to recovery . It is almost three weeks post op. I am up three times a day with the help of a walker and am doing well. Just need to get my strength back, not able to sit for long. I have a lap top but because of the abdominal incision I cannot work with it too much lying down. Before you know it I am going to be my old self again.

Yesterday was thanksgiving, it was a rather quiet day.Maya was down with the flu so was unable to come home. Vijay was here and it made my day bright. We had turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie and all the stuff that goes with thanksgiving. J's neice and her husband and kids were here so it was not too bad. So much to be thankful this year.

First of all I do have to be thankful for having such wonderful, caring friends like you. Last year this time I did not even know all of you existed. You all have given me so much joy and I love to read all the blogs, I have so much catching up to do.

I am thankful for having a good family , without them I could not have gone through all this. they have been a tower of strength, and have helped me every step of the way.

I am thankful for having come through the surgery so well and thank God for taking care of me and my family.

So much to be thankful for. I am really blessed. I want to wish each and everyone of you a happy thanksgiving. May your lives be blessed with every thing that is good.

My back has been bad for almost three years
I have been through a lot of pain and many a tear.
I have sought many treatments
Boasting a cure.
Physical therapy, accupuncture,Chiropractic,
And Epidural shots, to name a few.

X-rays were taken, scans were read
many MRI's along the year too.
came back with the same diagnosis, that
I had a bad back ,which I already knew.

Don't bend, sit up straight.
Eat healthy ,dont put on weight.
Use ice, no! use heat said some.
Just go to India and try Ayurvedic said one.

The doctor has spoken
The verdict is in.
I have two bad discs that are torn
through and through and.
need to be replaced with something new.

The surgery is set for November 6th
One disc will be to be replaced
with the The PRODISC
Which is something new.
The second will be replaced
Which will be glued.

Recovery is quick,
Thats what I am told.
Three to five days in the Hospital
And then I will be home.

I will try and update
As soon as I feel well.
Untill then my dear friends
Take care of yourselves.

Many of my friends have asked what surgery I am going to have so I thought I should post something so everyone would know. Thank you all for giving me courage and for all the prayers. I will be good as new ,and will be back to blogging and give you all the news. till then "Adios "my friends.
