|In and out of the City. My daughter drove.|
My daughter drove us all in and we had fun on the ride in. Takes about an hour and some minutes to get into the city.
We had a great time just two rows back from the stage. Nice. I highly recommend this play if you've not seen it.
To the left is a photo we took from the side of stage. That is a dragon hanging out over the audience in the first few rows.
It has now been one year since my spinal surgery which had turned out to be more extensive than they thought. I had ruptured discs and spinal stenosis and on the verge of cauda equina syndrome (look that one up lol).
Surgery was not an option for my my compressed, collapsed back bones.
I could no longer walk and the nerves were being damaged badly. I did lose some feeling in some places including my feet and lower legs.
It will be a long time until we know if the nerve damage is permanent.
So, bones were screwed into place, strengthened with rods, bones were crushed down into powder, mixed with things and molded around steel rods to hopefully grow into new bone around the steel. The surgery area was from the tip of tail bone up to the middle of my back.
It is great news that the bone is growing and after months and months of physical therapy (and still going) it was thought that I was strong enough to make the trek into the city.
I did pretty good though leaving the theater was a challenge since it is really uphill in the aisle.
The only help I needed was two Advil! Not bad at all.
I was scared in trying the escalator (the theater is upstairs from the lobby) but I did alright both going up and coming down again.
Now I want to go to the opera again and maybe to see the play 'Jersey Boys'!
My meme answers:
1. probably small and intimate with some close friends and family.
2. formal all the way. I love formality and some glam and glitter even with small things.
3. Hot and cold finger foods, cakes and champagne. Plenty of coffee and tea too.
5. small wedding party.
6. Ideal honeymoon might be New York City or Bermuda.
7. Live music please, if possible but, if not, doesn't matter in the end.
Please try to go visit those who've participated in the meme and get to know them and their blogs! That is also what makes memes fun.
