I love music and going to concerts. All kinds of music from symphonic to metal. I like movies, dining out, Sunday afternoon rides in the country, planetariums and exploring new things. I like to explore with an open mind another's beliefs and life views.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I am currently walking with a cane. There is back surgery in my future. Sometime in the next 6 months. Luckily quick recovery time. I have a couple of slipped discs in my lower back and the same thing in my neck. I can get from point A to point B. It just takes a little longer. The nerve compression in my neck is causing slight numbness and tingling in my hands. They function fine although I occasionally drop things. I look at my difficulties as challenges that can be overcome and not a resaon to feel sorry for myself.
I am very laid-back and caring.
I own my home which is on a little more than an acre of land with a nice size stream at one end.
07/2013 Update: I had surgery on my cervical spine a couple of months ago. Recovery is going well. There was no magical relief of the numbness and tingling in my hands. It can take awhile for nerves to heal. I have faith it will get better. Surgery on my lumbar spine will take place in a couple of months. I am hoping to be able to do away with the cane and walker I am now occasionally using sometime after that surgery.
12/2013 Update: I had surgery on my lumbar spine a little over a month ago. Recovery is going well. The piercing pain I had down my leg is gone and I can stand straight again. My legs are still somewhat weak so I am still walking with a cane but I am doing physical therapy and hope to have the strength back in no time.
04/2014 Update: I've gained a lot of strength in my legs. I can get around without my cane but I generally bring it with me when I go walking. Looking forward to riding my bicycle again. My hands are more or less the same and may not get better but we'll see. I've been tree pruning and doing some trimming on my bushes and hedges. I'm back to mowing my lawn. Progress is going good!
