Back from M I A !

High one and all.

Been missing from site for almost 4 weeks now.

Fell in home, rushed to hospital, quick C T and into emergency surgery for work on "Brain". Yep!!

Physically, not up to snuff, get tired a lot!!!

Hope back to better in near future.

Do not wish this on anybody, for sure!

How true that is.

I am trying to get back on track some memory loss is coming back along with some muscle strength. Still a little wobbly and tire easily. Feel like at times I am outside of my self on a bit of a different plane level.

Will be taking it very easy for some time.

Sorry to hear. Give yourself some more time to heal. Any type of surgery takes a minimum of 6 weeks to get back to baseline.

All the best to you!

You could probably qualify for some sort of home healthcare worker to come and look in from time to time on Medicare's dime. Ask your doc.

Tom, please get some help. Getting older is tough. I bet your insurance will cover some home health visits. Falling is so dangerous. Feel better soon.

I am so sorry for your adventure. Do you need help with meals? Are you eligible for a short term Meals on Wheels?

Tom I am glad to see you back but sorry to hear why you were gone. I hope that you will make some calls to see if you might qualify for some assistance until you feel better. Maybe call your doctor to see if they could point you in the right direction?
