    Aww, I'm so sorry you continue to struggle.
    I hope each day brings more relief.
    2019 has to be your year, right? Prayers it will be.

    Thanks for checking in @Fractured ! Take care of yourself. Get rid of that cold so that you can enjoy Christmas and New Years.
    Wow - I think that might be a BoneSmart record!

    Aww, Fractured, it goes on and on....
    Cold and Vertigo...you need a break. You deserve a break.
    I'll pray that your symptoms abate so you're able to enjoy the holidays.
    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and New Year filled with peace, joy and good health!

    Standing (um, maybe sitting) firm in the face of adversity...you amaze and inspire me.
    A special prayer that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas despite the struggles.
    Come on 2019...

    :merryx: @Fractured !

    @Fractured So sorry to hear your're going through all this again. My thoughts and prayers are with you for a speedy recovery. Like you, I don't like pain meds but please take them and be comfortable, at least. I hope you have a merry christmas and may the new year bring you lots of health! Will check in often to see how your doing. Hugs!

    @Mojo333 Thank you. Merry Xmas. Well Im half way there. Infectious disease Doc says levels look almost normal. The 15th of Jan is hopefully my last bag of HOOTCH ( IV ) Feeling a bit better and move somewhat easier. Hurts a hell of a lot more this time around. Doc says from scar tissue! Incision is healing better than Ive ever seen. I got myself a new drone for Xmas. Get it at the end of the week. I will post some new pics.... Happy New Year to my BoneSmart family!!

    @Fractured thanks for stopping by. Glad you are in healing mode again. Here's hoping 2019 is your year! Stop by our New Years party in the Social Room if you get a chance.

    Hootch, :heehee:
    Great news from the infectious disease docs. Two more weeks! :happydance:
    Glad to hear your incision is looking better than ever. That has to be comforting.
    You and your wife are going to need a long vacay, or a big party, or something, once this is behind you.
    It's been a long haul but I'll bet 2019 will be your year. Prayers continue....
