      Yes about 6 times since moving to Sequim, WA. I still have back pain and rib spasms, praying to take it slow and re-build my core muscles and strengthen my back as the screws in my pelvis have caused me to have a disability. I work every day to try and live within the pain and disability. The flat land helps as I walk more. How are you doing Heather?

        Good, Melody. I am glad you are well. My Mom and Dad are having some more training down on me and my sister’s Halflinger at my parents’ house to reinforce her training to settle her down for she has become quite hot-headed but she is progressing well enough that I may be able to ride her by next Spring or next Fall. I had another scan down and my C3 is herniated and degenerating like L4 and L5 they operated on last October. I go for another set of scans in November and if it isn’t any better and/or worse, they want to do more surgery. I have been taken off the oxy and given tramadol which doesn’t touch the pain in the least. I have also learned to work through the pain and the pain just seems part of my life too, never ceasing, enduring, severe, and unrelenting. 95% of the time it doesn’t stop me. The other time, it gets the best of me. I suppose that is something that is part of my life now. I am glad to hear you are doing well thoughツ Take care and talk soon.

        Hi Heather,

        Never give up! I will continue to pray for you sweet Heather. I am never going to be pain free it has been 4 years and I still need medication plus a massage every week for 1 1/2 hours. My feeet still go numb, spasms, back and rib pain. Hot tub helps too. I try very hard to take care of my body and enjoy every day and it is frustrating but I hang on to what could have happened. I hang onto how far I have come and the fact that I am not in a nursing home or dead. Pain is never gone ever and this sucks, but I have learned to live with it and I keep smiling. I pray you get to smile again too. Ask for a physiatrist as this doctor is a pain doctor and rehabilitive doctor this is who has helped me the most. We have to be very aggressive with the health care system to get the help we each need. Living on the flat 20 acres is easier for me than the 5 as all is flat. 🙂 Big hug and may GOD hold you tight in his arms. Melody
