The spiel - I had 2 back surgeries last year and am doing well, expect to be off the] walker by summer. Right now am tryin to et off the ast of the morphine, but I hurt. I got okayed for more physical therapy, so that will help. I do well with the one small morphine extentab at night, but you can't stay on it. Other than that, I'm doing well. Oh, ans I had to put my cat to sleep 2 months ago, and that was hard but it was time. She was sick and hurting.
