OK…..going to try this for a second time !!!!!!!!  I am back again and hopefully this time to stay.  I missed all my book blogging friends and apologize that there has been no update.  Will give a quick summary of why I haven’t been here. 
MY Photobucket JOURNEY
Unfortunately I had a major setback.  After being discharged to home after the surgery I had a bad reaction to one of my pain meds, which played havoc on my blood pressure.  Because of this, on 2 occasions, while walking with my walker I experienced signs of low blood pressure (becoming faint) and fell.  I was rushed to our local hospital both times and then on the 2nd ER visit to make sure no damage was done to the hardware in my back, I was transported to the out of state hospital where the surgery was done.  Once there and readmitted, I had some major complications that at times were critical.  But as of Friday night I turned the corner and was able to be discharged to home yesterday.   I am weak and still have a lot of post op pain but feel that now I am on the right road to recovery…..it will take time but I am willing to take baby steps.  It feels good to be home.
I have a lot of catching up to do !!!!!!!  I am very behind in my reading and reviews, never even opened a book while in hospital because I was too sick.  I also need to catch up with all my favorite blogs and resubscribe to newsletters.  HAVE A FAVOR TO ASK…..if you have any news that I might have missed over the past 3 weeks and would like to share, I would love to hear about it.  It will take time but eventually I will be back to my old self and schedule.  It can only get better from here !!!!  I am glad to be back and plan on staying this time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
