My mom made rosaries for an order of nuns to give to people
they prayed for. When anyone got sick she'd enlist the aid
of those nuns. God apparently listens to nuns more, they're

Wiggling toes doesn't sound like much until you realize that
they indicate that some, if not all the wiring is still there
and signals are getting through some of them now. THAT's
a very good sign that the rest of the wiring may still come
back on line.
Robatoy - you hang in there too.
By the yard it's hard. But by the inch - it's a cinch.
Your sister sounds like a pretty incredible person
and it sounds like it runs in the family because she's
got a pretty amazing brother.
Take care and keep us up to date. Lots of folks in
this group pulling for you all.
After her second surgery on C-5 & C-6, which was done in Kansas, they
managed to releave some of the pressure which they didn't quite get rid

Thank all you Wreckers for the support, I pass these posts on to her.

I don't post on the subject often, but I do think of her *every* time I go
up or down the stairs. I'm approaching 50 years old, and based on your
posts now *ALWAYS* use the handrail going up and down. If something takes

up or down the stairs.
I know it's probably no consolation, but what happened to your sister has
affected my daily life. I think of her all the time (each time up and down
the stairs.) I hope somehow this is a benefit to her, and the rest of
My prayers (of whatever dubious benefit) are with you.
So do I, so do I.
..to think of the times I would be working late and making a snack and
taking it on a plate in one hand, a mug of something in the other,
maybe a utensil clenched in my teeth.....down my office-stairs. I don't
do that any more.
Every time I see my kid flying down the stairs from her flat to the
main floor. no hand rails used.. no feet.. no problem. litterally
flying. I cringe.
as smooth as you remember it, you get a bit of splintering, or you just cut
a couple of nails in half.
I sent a few blades to Ridge Carbide Tool in New Jersey. Two came back as
good as new, the third one better than new. Although none were made by
Ridge, they sharpen any brand.
