pretend berries for bit of a pop of colour~
I want to begin by saying thank you so much for all of the well wishes. You all are so wonderful!
Diagnosis is: Cervical Spondylosis without Myelopathy. It affects us as we get older, sooner, or later... Dr. Hodes took me off of the muscle relaxers, but upped the pain management for 2 more weeks, as he was not pleased with the regimen the hospital had used for the severity of my case. Beginning next Tuesday, I will have traction and PT twice a week for a month, as well as traction therapy done in my home and then see him January 20. If things improve, that will be great, if not, he can perform a Laparoscopic surgery, that is 90% effective, but he, nor I feels I am ready for that.
All in all, I was very relieved to hear what he had to say and I feel hopeful.
I appreciate the kindness of your hearts very much~

A glorious sunrise about a mile from my home a few weeks ago.
All of these mosaics from past 2 weeks were created a while ago and I am just able to place them now, so it is not such difficult work for me, while I begin the journey to heal~
