What does Kitty have to say?


 


Kitty's next "adventure"

Like that great sage (Yogi Berra) once said, it's "deja vu all over again." Around this time last year, I underwent back surgery at UW Hospital. It was surgery on my spine, to deal with symptoms that resulted from spina bifida, a birth defect I was born with.  Basically "spina bifida" means the bones around my spinal cord didn't form completely, and over the years scar tissue built up around the open area, pulling down on my spine and causing numbness and tingling in my legs. The surgery went great, but in March the symptoms came back, and this surgery is to deal with new scar tissue that formed as a result of the last surgery. I'll probably be recovering at home for around 4 weeks. Now this seems a little repetitive and perhaps not as sexy the second time around, so I've been trying to think of some embellished stories to tell people instead of the boring old surgery stuff.  Here are some that I came up. Feel free to add your own.
1. I'm going on a pilgrimage to visit the graves of dead rock stars...from Duane Allman in Macon, GA to wherever Amy Winehouse is resting these days. 2. I'm feeding starving orphans. 3. I'm working on an intricate mosaic made up of used beer bottle caps in the likeness of Chubby Checker. 4. I'm getting ready for the mother of all garage sales. 5. I'm hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Hey Kitty! I can't believe you're having another back surgery. I had a spinal fusion about the same time as your surgery last year, it went great, but sure wouldn't want to do it again. Best of luck with everything, I'll be thinking of you and missingyou on the radio!! Dawn

You should tell people that you are taking a leave of absence to caddie for the Dalai Lama on the Senior Tour. You will be the Lama's caddie Kitty. Good luck, and get well soon!
