I spent a couple of days this week at the Oklahoma Heart Hospital South. No there is nothing wrong with my heart. But my spine is another story. My neurosurgeon works out of that hospital and he gave me some new scaring, my third back surgery, and I have some new fusion in the L4 L5 area.
I have degenerative back disease and my discs are not has healthy as they might be. It affects how I walk, and no amount of core strength classes can save it. I mean exercise helps, but eventually, it requires repair. I have a lovely set of walker, grabber, and back brace paraphernalia to wear and use. I’ve received countless messages and a vase of flowers from friends and I can’t cook for a while! It’s not all bad. And I met some nice people at the hospital. A couple were writers!
If I sound a little groggy it is because I am but I’m trying to maintain. I’m reading a new book, Big Magic, by Melissa Gilbert. You might like it. It is about living the creative life. I can read it while I take it easy.
What are you reading this week?
