I can't express how much I appreciate all of your replies; they really mean a lot to me in more ways than I can express. I have been informed that I could have nerve damage and will not be able to walk without a can. This has set me back emotionally quite a bit as my passion involves me being on stage but I have lost control of my right foot. I know there are many others that are worse off but I still feel awful and just down right depressed from it. Nothing is set in stone yet but I plan to make the best of it and work my butt off and maybe just maybe I'll regain use in my foot. Thank you for all your thoughts and praries, they are still needed as I'm due to be in this hospital for another 2 weeks as that have to remove another disc. I have friends and my girlfriend but they have no idea what it's like and you do and I believe that's what I need right now. On the upside, I have nearly finished my publication while here (of course I'll probably have to redo it since it was written via morphine drip lol) I hope you all have a blessed holiday.
