Would you believe...

......that it has been one year ago today that I had my back surgery??

In some ways, it feels like it has gone quite fast, and in other ways very, very slow! The good news is that my back is better than it was! I have my days, but who doesn't!?!

No other real news on my end to share, but I will pass on that the "Fall into Fall Giveaway" has started. Go here to see all the blogs participating- only if you promise to give me your prize if you win and I don't!!....just kidding! Go and have fun :)

Just so you have something to look at, here is my Fall Angel. Out of all the seasons, Fall is my favorite. Great weather to snuggle under quilts, hot apple cider, pumpkin pie/bars, and the sound of leaves crunching under your feet.

Take care and thanks for stopping! Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth! Love your angel stitchery, and glad to hear your back surgery went well. I have lots of questions about that, as I may need surgery as well. I read through your previous posts, so am fairly up to speed, but I was wondering why you had a neurosurgeon do the surgery as opposed to an orthopedic back surgeon. I'm so nervous about having this done. My problem isn't quite the same as yours, as I have spinal stenosis and spondylolithesis, so my 4th lumbar vertebrae has slipped down onto my 5th, pressing on nerves, mainly the sciatic, and giving me tons of pain and numbness of my right leg and foot. I had one injection back in January, which helped some, but now I can barely walk or stand for more than five minutes without experiencing pain. Any info would be greatly appreciated. You can email me if you don't want to discuss on the blog. Thanks!
