Bookworm---I understand your dilemma completely. I've had two major surgeries in the past year with two more coming up.
Life is definitely a challenge on a good day! ; )
I'm trying to release, but I am home bound unless my Mom takes me out. It sucks! Praying for you! I'm still going to BC whenever I can!
BC is a most welcomed port in the storm! : D
I've been frequenting the Fun and Games Forum, because one of the most frustrating parts for me is not being able to be as physically active (I even had to give up my gardening last year), and now I am unable to read as much, because I also have worsening eye issues. During my last visit with my Opthamologist he suggested amniotic membrane stem cell lenses being used to try to heal eye some of the issues without having a surgery done where you are laying flat on your stomach for 6 weeks afterwards. Don't think I'm too keen on trying this fairly new stem cell treatment option, and certainly not the surgery. This growing old stuff is DEFinitely for the birds!
My thoughts and prayers are with you as well, spazcat.
