    My ear right now feels clogged, and "rings" alot. I cannot tolerate lying on my right (surgical side), which is a pain because apparently that is typically my position of choice as I cannot get comfortable to sleep easily on my left side.

    It's very bizzare that I have been out of work as long as I have. I was talking with my family today, and literally this is the first time that I have had this long of a chunk of time unemployed since Junior year of high school. Two of the weeks I was really in recovery/sleep mode, but now I'm starting to putter around the house and using the opportunity to get some cleaning and decluttering completed.

    Dakski has been a godsend, even though this has been incredibly hard on him. He has been there for me in so many ways and I don't know what I would do without him. Thank you all for thinking of me! Lots of love. Katie
    Honey, While you are puttering around and cleaning, why don't you clean some reptile tanks?

    All kidding aside, the BP.net community has been awesome and I've been showing SunshineWalker the posts along the way. I am glad everyone got to hear from her today.

    I am also incredibly relieved she's feeling better.

    I had a bad day health wise, and spent most of it in bed, as my normal health issues on top of being a caregiver for close to month, got the best of me. I wish Katie could sleep too, but, on the plus side, the house is looking great! .

    I couldn't be more proud of SunshineWalker. She's such a trooper and has pushed through pain, anxiety, and uncertainty of late while still being my best friend and supporting me (with Toref, work, my health, etc.). I am a lucky guy.

    It's so good to hear from both of you!!!

    Katie, I'm glad you're feeling better and on the up-and-up!! That's great news
    Don't push yourself though, if you're body tells you you're doing too much, listen. I only say that because as I've gotten older I've finally started listening to my body. Turns out it's usually right, hahhahaha. If only I knew that 20 years ago...
    It was so great seeing you on here catching us up. I'm glad you're feeling the BP.net love, we truly have a great community here. Keep up the great work and know our support and love are continued.


    Dave, sorry you had a down day today. Hopefully getting some rest today gets you feeling better too. Now that Katie is feeling better don't be afraid to get some rest for yourself, you need it and deserve it my friend.


    To both of you, hearing you guys share glimpses into your lives and love for one another is inspiring. Your positivity and support for one another is uplifting in a time when this works needs it. You two are each other's angels, the same way I see my beautiful fiance. In all honesty, you two make me that much more excited to be engaged, and next year married, to my best friend and my angel. Thank you.

    I truly wish you both all the best.

    I hope the recovery is going well for Katie! Blessed thoughts and well wishes sent to you and yours! We are fortunate to have loved ones to help us through these times. This is the second time Iíve had surgery that disables me to a point and my husband has always been there for me with anything I need. Blessed be David!

    Re: SunshineWalker/Katie Had Major Surgery - 2X in the Past 2 Weeks

    Katie saw the surgeon today and is cleared to go back to work next week.

    He says the pain she is feeling is normal given the type of surgery and having two surgeries two weeks apart. He feels she is progressing nicely, but warned her the pain could get a little worse before it gets better because of nerves growing back.

    The important thing is although Katie still has pain, she feels that it's surgery related pain and the headache that lasted for months, appears to be gone. I don't want to sell the farm yet, but those are her words and I think we are both optimistic.

    Thank you all again for the support. We both appreciate it and it meant a lot.
