    Sorry to hear of your mother's death, and also your back injury and pain. It's tough when everything you do (walking, coughing, sneezing) hurts like hell.

    My back got wrecked when a packhorse I was leading fell off a steep trail and I didn't let go of the rope in time. I managed to ride out, ten miles to the line shack, unsaddle the horses, and then crawl into bed. Next morning I could hardly move. But I had to drive 50 miles to the nearest town over bad, rocky roads. Didn't even have aspirin. Ugh!

    When I tried to get workman's comp to pay for meds and therapy, the Forest Service denied my claim, saying that I couldn't prove my injury took place on the job. I couldn't work, nor afford treatment. But given time it healed, somewhat. I've managed for the last many years with caution and daily exercise. I've also done lots of wilderness hiking and skiing, mountain biking, small boat sailing, whitewater boating, and other fun things.

    Right now, what I dread most is running the snowblower.

    Sorry to hear, EOC. May the trajectory of your recovery continue toward greater mobility and less pain.

    I believe in jinxes, so I won't say anything about 2022 v 2021...

    My condolences to you EoC on the loss of your mother. It is especially hard when you are not able to be there. I am glad that you are on the way to recovery in regards to your back. It's horrid when you expect spasms of pain every time you attempt to move, cough, or sneeze.

    On the bright side, you can always reconsider that the New Year has not started until 01 February ( Lunar New Year! )

    Gung Hay Fat Choy to you and your wife.

    All the Best.
