I haven't been writing much. I have been so discouraged about the slow process of healing and all the pain involved that I didn't write. No reason to share this hard process with others. It is a private, continuing struggle that sometimes never seems to end or make any progress. It has been seven weeks now since the surgery and I still can't walk. Discouraging. So I am not writing on the blog until I feel happier. We all suffer and no reason to add my suffering into the mix. I hope to one day be walking around again.
