Re: Surgery over

Even with the meds it took me a while before I was able to sleep comfortably. It will be 8 weeks tomorrow and it is just in the last 2 weeks that I feel like I'm getting really good sleep.

Re: Surgery scheduled for 9/18

I scootered to the toilet door and then hopped and shimmied to the toilet and then hopped and shimmied back to the scooter. It was really hard but it was the only way I could get in there.
