I just thought I'd let you know that I am improving. It is slow but I am and I am encouraged. The pain is much more under control with the pain meds, before it was bearable but there. I can go longer between doses instead counting down the last hour and waiting another hour for them to kick in. My back is not in pain it is my leg that feels like a charlie horse cramp in my bum, hamstring and calf muscles in my left leg. Standing is very hard on my leg, it doesn't take much standing to hurt. Walking is fine, sitting is okay it is all getting easier except standing seems to be the same. Thank you for all your prayers and fasting. I know that they have helped me. I also know that I wouldn't be able to rest like I have without help from my family Louws & Pews (esp. Tim & my mom) and my ward/neighborhood. I am amazed when I think about how bad I was. I have heard from people who have had similar injuries and they have all recovered, some with surgery another with physical therapy. I am optimistic I will also recover with time and hopefully without surgery.
