    Status Update

    Haven't been much available lately. On Dec. 22, I slipped on the ice, fractured 2 vertebrae in my neck, separated another and suffered a spinal cord compression. I was fully paralyzed for a full hour and rushed into surgery at Albany Medical. Two weeks later...I have my legs back. Can't use hands much. I type 1 finger at a time. But I will be back. In the meantime, I will just follow along.

    If it ain't broke....don't fix it!

    That must've been horribly painful. Hope your recovery is complete and quick.

    That's pretty scary! I'm glad that the full paralysis quickly went away. I had major back surgery years ago so I assume you are in for a long recovery. My surgery was in December also. At least sitting around in the winter months is better then sitting around in warmer weather. I wish you well and a speedy recovery!
