    Dan, I had a rough year last year - started with a herniated disc from the rods in my back. Then I had a hernia (and surgery). Not sure what caused the hernia but I think that the constipation from taking the pain meds due to the herniated disc certainly had a lot to do with it. Finally getting over the hernia operation and trying to get back to the gym and walk more. Hopefully it will be a better year in 2012.

    How about you? I see your posts a few times and it looks like you are doing okay. I hope so!

    Hey Dan. I'm fairly new to the site, but I'm six years T12/L1 complete and I live in the Asheville area. I'm always interested in meeting (virtually or in the real world) other local SCI's. So that's a little explanation for the random friend request. -Mutton

    omg, I was just thinking I was overdue a message or call to you, apologies. We were planning to see a concert in Greensboro, thus meeting up w/ you possibly. However, I had so many complications after surgery plus didn't have the net(broken aircard) for quite awhile. Well, we never ordered tix after all, I've been so ill but I think, getting better.....fingers crossed for me please..Sorry Dan, we'll meet up soon I hope.

    Dan,Juke, besides the minutes I added to your phone on Tue, I had also added 20 bucks on 1/8/2010. If it didn't take, I can email you the receipt I got from tracfone and you can go yell at them."

    When I checked the acct. time balance (they'ed stopped displaying it on the opening screen!?) I found I'ed had something over 200 min.

    Re. your last call I replied within minutes and left a VM for you to call back - .

    Thanks for all the help and care and I'm not surprised if you are trying not to use up the minutes and appreciate it.

    Paul called on Sun with some computer deals - too late with the deal already done - and a tip about what's got to be the best cable setup in the country, DSL extreme for fifteen or twenty bucks for the first year and not much more after - but, of course, they don't cover my area, so I'll probably have to go w a slower connection and pay $26.50 a mo. like many of the residents in this area.

    Dan, I've only visited once, at the end of Sept.,- according to lyniffer anyway.

    Things have settled where I'm living; there's just me and one of the women in our flat. I'm thinking of either gettting a laptop or using the $700 I've saved up to get moved into a better place. Lot of things I've got to check into before I move on either.

    I haven't had any minutes on my cell of at least as long as I've been away from the site. I am going to buy some time for the cell soon and I'll keep you posted.

    Hey Dan, I'm used to getting PM's - this is my first visitor message. Hope you get it. I'm actually in NC right now - visiting my family. We normally come up from Florida at Thanksgiving but won't be able to make it this year so thought we'd come up now.

    I'm doing okay. So glad to have my gall bladder out - felt bad for quite a while with it. Still taking Vancocin for cdiff - been taking something for close to a year now. Every time I stop taking it the cdiff comes back. But as long as I'm taking it I feel fine. I'm still working full time and working with a personal trainer a few times a week. Not really showing any improvement but I want to maintain what I have.

    How about you - still working? Any changes in the SCI?

    Talk to you later.

    Mike
