wow Tim, sorry to hear this. my brother in law went through the neck portion of this and was able to regain most of his neck mobility. he got back his quality of life and i am sure you will too... thoughts and prayers to you.
on my end, about the same. both parents are down. mom is recovering in the nursing home from not taking care of herself and is in depression. she is basically allowing herself to fade away. my dad is in the hospital recovering from a broken hip, pneumonia, blocked bowels, and a gastrointestinal hernia. they have been separated from each other for two months now and it has taken a major toll on my mother. trips back and forth to the hospital one day, the nursing home the next. trying to keep up with work, everything around the house, running on little to no sleep... it has just been a mess.
i have flown my new Aton one time in the last month, the 180 not since last november... just isnt enough time.
