You may have noticed that I've not been around much for several weeks now. My new mantra ... Hold On. I knew I was born with a bad back and come from a long line of bad backs, but mine chose this time to fail me .... big time. I'm holding onto the idea of getting help and getting better. It's not much fun. I'm fighting a compression fracture, 2 ruptured disks and other problems too numerous to remember or need to share. (My notes filled up an entire page!) My spine is seriously arthritic. I knew that I had stenosis of the spine for a long time now, but was living with it fairly well ... until now. I'm so sad to say that I'm putting my February classes on hold for now, until I see what I find out from the next specialist I will see (on Monday). He is a spine specialist, so he should be well used to dealing with messed up backs like mine. I will keep you posted on my progress and my class schedule. If you've earned a coupon, hold onto it until we see how this plays out. I will make sure no one is forgotten. I'm hoping you'll say a few little prayers for me. I'd much rather be stamping than dealing with all this.
