    Hey Stormie!!!!!!! well just been home 2 days now my wife passed out last friday morning going to work and broke her back!!! L2 compression break and hopefully NO SCI!! but she's been talking about her feet tingling. I remember mine doing that the first time for a few days. seems like there's always something to set a person back!! does SUCK!
  4. Hey duge....Jim is fine just fighting a constant sp clog. What sucks is when u have 7 yrs. Of minor stuff n this sets u back. I guess kind of gives u a reality check in a way. Hope all is well w/ u n yours. Been combing the site n it's great to see so many r doing well !! Take care !!

    Hi stormie!! Life has been very strange. My husband Sean passed away in September. He'd been in the hospital all summer, but came home under palliative care. We were all with him when he died. I'm glad he is not suffering anymore, but I miss him. Trying to adjust to my new normal.

    How are you and your husband? I don't hang around cc too much anymore either, but I still like to check in every once in a while to see how everyone is.
