Major Milestone for ME!

Posted on October 10, 2013 by sonjabarrie

Major Milestone for ME! Most of you probably do this all the time and don’t even give it a thought but the other day Tim and I went to the movies.  I walked in unassisted, no walking stick, nothing, I sat there watching the movie for almost 2 hours, I then got up out of […]

Thursday 6th June, 1 day post-op

Posted on July 21, 2013 by sonjabarrie

Looking again at Tim's notes I am amazed at how I have no memory of this day at all. When I read them it is really obvious to me that no matter how sick a person is, sometimes it is much worse for the loved one who is desperate to do anything they can to […]

6 weeks and a set back ;o(

Posted on July 19, 2013 by sonjabarrie

6 weeks and a set back ;o( Well I have been progressing well over the last few weeks, able to take a 1 mile walk 2 or 3 times a day. Still all on the flat, haven’t tried going uphill which would be easy to find as I live on the side if a mountain […]

My Life Before and After

Posted on July 15, 2013 by sonjabarrie

So how can getting three new disks change your life?  This past year has, by and large, meant I have been house bound.  Any trips out brought on unbearable pain and days in bed recovering. Difficult at best but catastrophic when you are try to run your own business. I am lucky in that we […]

Bed or Pressure Sores and Day 37 Post Op

Posted on July 13, 2013 by sonjabarrie

Day 37 Post Op Well it’s just over 5 weeks since the surgery and I still have good days and bad.  Last weekend was pretty good but I seemed to go downhill again after that.  My guts almost feel as they did right after the surgery where they feel like they are about to fall […]

Day 28 post op. My Sucky Week

Posted on July 03, 2013 by sonjabarrie

Recap of the last week. 26th June, Wednesday Day 21, 3 weeks today! Long flight home, 22 hours door to door and all of it sitting. Went back on the fentanyl patch 4 days before we left so I would have the relief for three days while packing and sorting etc, although Tim was fantastic […]

New Bionic Back

Posted on June 21, 2013 by sonjabarrie

Day 16 Post-op Woke up in a lot of pain this morning, we went for a short walk last night to a restaurant that was close, our first real meal out. I was OK for a while but sitting there did start to get the better of me after the first hour, even with 2 […]

Tim and Command Central

Posted on June 20, 2013 by sonjabarrie

Tim and Command Central No matter where we go in the world, Tim manages to run the world from command central!  We always take 2 monitors with us when we travel, one for him and one for me but as I can’t sit yet for more than half an hour, there’s not much point in […]

Day 14 post-op

Posted on June 19, 2013 by sonjabarrie

When we all talked about me getting that third disk put in, Dr Clavel warned me that it would take one to two extra weeks to recover, L5/S1 is harder to get to, so needs more recovery time. We decided it was worth it because I for sure was not going to be able to […]

What Tim didn’t tell you about the day of the operation!

Posted on June 15, 2013 by sonjabarrie

Tim kept a set of notes so he wouldnt forget anything when I woke up and wanted to know all the details!  Bless his cotton socks, his posts are short and upbeat (one of the reasons I love him) but sometimes he leaves out so much detail that you never really know the anquish he […]
