Laurie, I am so glad you are paying attention to the signals your body is sending you.

More people would be a lot healthier if they did that!

Meanwhile, of course you are in my prayers, but here's a rec in case you haven't seen this flic for a dvd that will have you laughing and crying at the same time...Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married!"

Laurie, so glad to hear you averted a major setback by going in so quickly. I know you are doing all the right things. Soon you'll be back up and going again. My mom had her knee replaced and while she didn't have some of the complications you've had, it still took her over a year to get things back to normal and be able to do things without thinking about her knee. I'm glad you have a caring husband and friends close by to help you as well as all of here in cyberspace to keep your spirits up. That's a very important part of healing.

I understand the rope thing. I am meeting with a neurosurgeon on Thursday to discuss my 3rd back surgery.

PAdams, I am so sorry to hear of your back problems. I have a triple fracture in my lumbar region from an accident 18 years ago. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks you June, Jabbur and everyone.

I have learned a lot about my body through this whole ordeal and that is a very positive outcome.

Good News! Last night when Tony removed the stocking and massaged my leg it was less swollen and the circulation was better. Then, when he did it again today it was even better and the pain is getting under control. I am still not there yet but this is really lifting me up big time!

Laurie- I haven't been on in a couple of days so I'm just reading about your troubles. I very sorry that your going through all this. Make sure you listen to the dr. rest and keep a close eye on things as you already know early detection that something is wrong is usually the key. Stay strong, keep the faith and know I'm thinking about you.

Just seen the thread Laurie. Hope you bounce back soon and that this is only a minor hiccup.

Sorry to be behind. I hadn't seen this thread until today.

I hope you are still improving. My thoughts to you.

Thanks everyone. The clot has dissipated and that scare is over.
