Been a hech of a ride so far. Had some serious set backs with this.
Had too have the first one removed. It suddenly became unstable and was moving. Soooo,I was ordered to complete bedrest. No PT ecru. Had the first one removed and new one installed on n the 18th. That about knock the fire out of me. As the weekend progresses my energy level kept dropping. Simple things like lifting my foot off the ground I have to take a sock off with him impossible. I have blood work done this morning made the staff here suddenly stopped all PT work on me and that was ordered back to bed I was losing blood somehow and my hemoglobin was down to 6.4 so I spent most of the day slowly having blood put into me I like to admit I feel hotel bit better. .hopefully my message here makes sense as I've got me on some pretty strong winds right now I am talking to text isn't working much better than trying to text itself. I will keep all of you updated as I am able to talk to you later

Oh Ken, bless your heart! I am so, so sorry that things have gone so badly. frown Praying that God will guide your doctors to find and correct the bleeding issues and will soon have you back on your feet.

Hang in there Ken!!! You are one strong warrior. Will keep you in my prayers. Just take one day at a time, and after one day, you'll get stronger, then the next day a little more, and so on.
Keep in touch.
You have all the support here.
