Hi all,

This school year is sneaking by me--It's almost December, Holy Cow!! My schedule is busy--my husband and I go to physical therapy together every day. He is pretty strong after his August total knee replacement--and is getting ready for the other one on December 1. As for me, I am proud to say that I am walking independently a good part of every day. I have muscle fatigue and pain in my legs daily. My back is much better--still very numb in the surgical area. I had an injection about a week ago that I couldn't even feel because of numbness. My upper legs and feet are also numb yet and we are unsure if I am going to get past this. We are also unsure if it is the result of the second surgery that left me numb from the waist down or from the Levaquin that did some serious damage to my body or if it is simply part of a growing condition that I have being lovingly referred to as "polyneuropathy." I see a neurologist in early December and am hoping for some information to help define and treat my issues.

I want to share some wedding photos so you can enjoy one of the happiest days of my life. My son and daughter-in-law are doing so well and life is such a great time for them that I have to smile when I think about them!

This is the wedding party.

Here's one of my favorite photos during Mitchell and Laura's first dance together as husband and wife.

I hope this is a good photo of my dance with Mitchell--It was so wonderful, and I made my PT goal of being able to dance with him!!

Here's Matthew, our oldest son and one of Mitchell's groomsmen.

Here's some wedding cake!

And the kids says it all!!

Gentle hugs,

    What a wonderful photo of the newlyweds! You can just see the love shining in their eyes!
    This is awful news about the lower body numbness. If it is some kind of nerve damage is there anything they can do at all to reverse it? I too, will be seeing a neurologist. So ironic you can finally walk, but have this new problem to deal with now :-(
    Sending healing thoughts and prayers,

    The pictures were wonderful. Your family is very good looking. You can tell they had a wonderful wedding.

    I hope you continue to heal and get better. Maybe the neuroigist will be able to help.

    I'm sorry so many of these are sideways, I don't know why they came out that way. They are right-side-up in iPhoto. Oh well... I hope they give you a smile anyway!!
