Been up scooping moldy corn to the center of the corn bin, so came in to rest. I've read through all 30 pages of this thread, and your support through all my medical issues almost brought tears to my eyes.
It has been a very difficult time, and is still painful at times after 8 weeks and 2 days, but still hoping to return to normal some day...but it's not here yet by a long shot. Sleep is difficult, but not having a morning alarm going off helps, as I can sleep later if need be. The financial issues weigh on me as much as the physical issues do, and really much harder to deal with being I'm limited as to what I can do physically. Money will be running short by year's end, but I hope to sell some equipment I won't need anymore after the 1st of the year, so that should get me through a while. Hoping by next spring to be feeling more like my old self & getting a new source of income going. The sale of springer heifers will only hold me for so long, so I must get something rolling.
I see my surgeon on August 6th, so I'll see if he thinks I'm where I should be at this point.
Again, many many thanks for your support. It truly helps & is much appreciated. Long road to travel yet, but I'm on the right side of the tracks at least. I think my mental road is my toughest one to travel at this point.
