Hi everybody!!!! I have not written for quite a while. Here is whats been going on. Since my last surgery back in November 2011 I was doing ok. The pain was never gone but I was able to get through it. I have change my eating habits to being mostly vegertarian with some fish eaten at times. I still do my yoga at least 5 to 6 days a week. Then a while back I started getting some more pain in my back and down my right leg. It seem to be getting worse and worse that I finally got a MRI to see what was going on. A couple days later my doctor called me personally which freaked me out because I knew it wouldn't be good news. It was'nt. Now I need a fusion at L3-4, L3 laminectomy, a facet cyst excision etc, etc, etc. I go for surgery May 21 and another 6 weeks or more of staying home. The one thing I will miss the most is doing yoga. In fact all the people that I take yoga with were surprise I was going in for back surgery. I feel yoga has giving me the balance and strength that I needed to get around. Just wanted to say hi to everybody and just give an update on my life.Wish me luck on my surgery and I will keep you all in touch on how it goes.Thanks, Kim
