To all my bloggy friends and readers and all those who have expressed such concern over my recent back problems: first of all, thank you for the many e-mails and phone calls. I'm sure that just knowing so many people care has helped me on the road to recovery. Today is the first day I started to feel better. It only took one minute to get out of bed in the morning, as opposed to the 20 minutes it has taken all week (complete with shrieking due to severe pain). I am grateful to be able to walk again, and was able to do little things around the house today. On Sunday, I'm going for physical therapy/massage therapy, and I hope that will help a lot.
Again, many thanks. I truly appreciate you all.
