I don't know that I can single out just one person. My whole family is so supportive. My mother, who at age 88 and crippled with arthritis, offered to come help me after my latest knee surgery. My husband, who supports me and listens while I vent, even though he has multiple health conditions himself. My two children, who have both taken time off to be with me during and after my surgeries. And my little granddaughter, whose smile can make me forget about any pain I may be dealing with.
I am also grateful for this forum, that provided answers and support when I was first diagnosed, along with the SAA website and resources.
And my church family is always there for me, praying for me, bringing food after surgery, and supporting me in every way they can.
I truly have so much to be grateful for.
