Have missed you on these boards.  Had my third kyphoplasty two weeks ago.  This time as outpatient not ER surgery.  What is the laser machine they are going to use on the other side.  Another gamma knife?

So glad you have that family to distract you.  Be well.

Always knew you were the leader and trendsetter type!  I am definitely going to read up on this.  Seriously though, thank you for stepping up like that.  I am proud to know you!  Stay in touch.

I will be waiting for your next post after your laser treatment.  You are making history and I will look at that web site.  I hope you have continued improvement with your speech and coordination. Lori

Hi Dave,

So good to hear from you.  I am so glad your lungs and lymph nodes are ned, that is wonderful.  Thank you for letting us know about the upcoming laser treatment, I hope to hear from you when that is complete.  I think that 2 and 1/2 months is a very short time for healing and maybe it will take a little longer for the nerve endings to mend. I wish you continued great news. Lori
