Ladies, you are both very strong. Just reading that you keep putting one foot in front of the other everyday is proof of that. You are strong because you both have decided it’s the only choice you could make. Pat yourselves on the back and see how far you have come. That’s how I got through spinal fusion surgery (2011). It wasn’t until about 5-6 months into rehab/recovery that I realized I was doing stuff that I couldn’t do before. Be patient, stay strong.
