|A few of my (least) favorite things|

I know I have taken a short break from blogging. It really wasn't voluntary, I think with all I have been through with culminating with the marathon finish, I just needed a break for a battery recharge.
I've been talking to several people considering elective amputation, which has given me pause to think over what I feel I need to say to those, like me, who want their lives back, free of pain and drugs and neverending surgeries. If only medicine looked as far ahead as is does backward sometimes...I am shocked at the absolute medieval practices that is still employed in the OR. To believe that a life on painkillers, every increasing in strength to ward off the paranoid monster that is pain, is somehow preferably to a life without a limb...and pain's constant companionship. More on this later, but part of the reason of my absence here.
Life calls, do not miss it.
