Words I never wanted to hear dancing to time in the back of my mind.

I remember the day I wrote that line 37 years ago. The reason I wrote, is that my parents at that time had to make a major decision about my future. The choice was back surgery, traction or both. They told my parents if it was not done that I would not be walking at 40. My parents chose no,reason being already had had leg braces, surgery,6months in a wheelchair, car accident. Concussion. They felt as if i had been thru enough and them too. The day has arrived, I am gradually losing control over my limbs due to cervical stenosis that I was born with, which has progressed. I kept blaming the anal tx for all these problems. I am sorry to any of you that I may have confused about my constant complaining about why I have not been healing. I am glad that I have pursued this dx and might not have without the support of all of you. I will be meeting with the neurologist on Monday to explore treatment options.

Thank you for your kind and informative support.

    I am so sorry to hear this. I do hope the last 37 years has brought new treatments and they can offer relief and hope.

    In my thoughts and prayers
    Phoebe, You never have to apologize. You obviously have been dealt more than your fair share of pain and worry. There are only friends here that care about you. With all that you are dealing with and been through you amaze me in that you can give of yourself so freely and unselfishly. Many of your responses to me have made me smile when it wasnt easy to do so, thats major. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers .
