    Default Happy New Year

    The holidays have brought out a crowd; it's almost like old times. I
    lurk most of the time, but I want to wish all you old timers and all
    who've come aboard since I last posted a very Happy and less painful
    New Year.

    My wife's shoulder replacement is far in the past now, but it's still
    pain free and probably will do her for the rest of her life.

    Her diabetes finally caught up with her and she's dealing with a below
    the knee amputation of one leg and osteoarthritis in the other hip.
    She's still highly motivated to work through everything; we have yet
    to see how far she can go toward normal.

    Hello Don,

    I am new here. I feel so bad for your wife needing a below the knee
    amputation. I wish her all the very best! I hope for normalcy in her life
    also. Thank you for the new year wishes and the same to you and your wife.

    Gentle hugs,

    Diane

    Don!

    What a wonderful surprise to see you popping in!

    How are YOU doing?

    I have a neighbor who had a shoulder replacement about a year ago or so.
    She is thrilled with it! So much less pain. She needs to have the
    other shoulder done, but is putting it off a bit, as it does take some
    time to recover from all of that.

    Sorry to hear of your wife's amputation. That had to be a tough thing
    to go through. Glad she is pushing forward, though, and doing the best
    she can to adapt. Must be especially tough with the arthritis in the
    other side.

    Do hope you'll pop in once in a while to say hello.

    A most happy new year to you and your wife, Don!

    Thanks for all the nice comments and happy new year wishes. I'll
    probably keep on lurking most of the time since my wife and both have
    fairly mild osteoarthritis, not the debilitating kind many of you all
    have.

    Please do, Don! You and your wife are still hurting no matter what kind of
    arthritis you have or to what degree you have it. :-) I'm glad to hear
    that the OA is fairly mild. Some good news for a change, eh?

    Hugs,

    Diane
