Good morning Eileen,
Thank you for the encouraging words. I am just waiting for a date for surgery. The hardware has to go as it is causing too much pain. I am longing to feel normal again. However, I am mobile. I can drive. I can go shopping – just- usually stand at the checkout stretching the leg! It could be worse and it will only be about a 3 month wait. Great to hear you can teach again. I took early retirement because of the tpf. I’m glad I did but I do miss the students and I do have the opportunity to work one day a week. I remain positive that I will make a good final recovery. Your post has given me heart. Thank you. Have a good day.
