Hi Maria,
I forgot to answer about my neck brace. For months after the surgery i was in a very stiff brace that allowed virtually no movement. I also had a component that went down my back and braced my thoracic and some of the lumbar area. That was for several months. I also had a hard waterproof one for the shower. I was never allowed to be without one.,
I graduated toi the bottom piece off after maybe 4 months. Then after a few more months another one that was not so stiff, then a few months more and i am not in a soft brace.

I hope next week will work out with nice weather. It will be so great to finally meet.
well i'm heading out to take buddy for a short walk to let him do his business!
