Marty, my brother-in-law is going through the same exact situation as you. Like you, he has a great attitude is determined to beat this disease.
As we both know it is harder to come back from each surgery. I'm still recovering from my Lumbar Fusion Surgery that I had last July. We just have to take it easy and let our bodies heal.
I'll miss you at York this April but am looking forward to seeing you again at York in October.
Be well my friend and know that everyone is pulling for you to have a rapid and full recovery!
