Wow, I never suspected that I would spend 2 1/2 months in the hospital with four surgeries including a neck and upper spine fusion due to MSSA Staph infection.  It is the little brother of MRSA Staph.  I don't stand straight any more, I have two ugly scars on my neck, but other than that and the "for life" antibiotics I have fared well.  Many well wishes from friends and family and lots of flowers and fruit while I was in the hospital helped to cheer my spirits.  Thanks to all of you.  I have lost 25# since the middle of June and am now trying to find smaller clothes in my old closet which is housed in the attic of the garage. 

I'm so happy to be alive!
