One week from today I will be heading to Baton Rouge in order to have surgery that will place the baclofen pump in my stomach. I will be in the hospital for 2 to 3 weeks. I am excited but also a little afraid at the same time. I don't really know how my hand is going to function once the baclofen pump has been installed. I will have so much that I will have to relearn. I also know that this is the right step to go in the direction that I'm wanting to go so I will do this and I will find a way to live again without my hand if that's necessary. There are other quadriplegics out there that can live life without the use of their fingers and hand so I know that I will survive no matter what. I hope everyone had a good holiday season and I'm sorry that I have not been blogging lately. As we say goodbye to 2016 I hope the new year brings great joy to everyone! I have many goals for 2017 and I hope everyone has also made their goals. In my next blog post I will be writing about my goals for 2017 so please stay tuned!
