Thank-You for starting this thread! I to would like to Thank-You and all my "Family" here on this forum, for being there for me, during some pretty difficult times in my life this past year! The divorce, and the joint fusion in my neck and all the other stuff I had done. I just can't express my gratitude and and the feelings I have for everyone here on this forum. I know that I have not been here much on the forum since my surgery in November, but the recovery has been tough a one! And I have also been fighting that bad tooth of mine that I had trouble with earlier in the year, this past Monday I finally got it taken out! The Doctor ended up having to put a collagen plug in the hole where the root was, because the roots of the tooth was up into my sinus cavity, and when they pulled it, it made a hole into the sinus. After The doctor put in a collagen plug in, he then stitched it all up, and put me on antibiotics. So I am now recovering from that too! But I will be back soon!
I do wish all of YOU ( my Family) a very Happy New Year!
