Briefly, in the last little while, I've been in a lot of pain and discomfort in the area where I received my cancer radiation treatments. Evidently the radiation weakened my bones to the extent that I developed a stress fracture that gave way and broke apart.
I had major surgery on Friday and will be kept in the hospital to undergo rehab and restorative care. It's going to be a long recovery period to get me back to even near to where I was before.
Please keep Mr. Painted Quilt and I in your thoughts and prayers during this stressful time. Internet access in the hospital is intermittent at the best of times but I will be checking in on you all whenever I can.
This entire ordeal has been another huge eye opening experience with respect to how much in life we take for granted. Hug those close to you and remember to say how much you love them.
