This is Annie's daughter taking a dictation on my phone at her hospital bedside. Here's Annie. ..
"It hurts more than I thought it would but everyone at the hospital is nice. I have to wear a back brace and I am still not out of bed too often; that is a few days away still. I am on several pain meds making me a loopy. (Annie's daughter's commentary: really, really loopy ;-))
That's all for now". Annie-
This is Holly again ... she's loopy but her sense of humor is coming back. She is improving remarkably well - even getting out of bed a couple of times!
Thanks for all the well-wishes. Annie will be discharged tomorrow and sent to in-patient rehab to finish her recovery. I will keep you posted.
