So sorry about your helper. I can sympathize with you. My wife also is in almost unbearable pain 24/7. I started with Knee replacement surgery. Severe burning all the time. Four Doctors told her it was a pinched nerve in her back (Neurological testing seemed to confirm that). So she had the back surgery to fuse the vertebrae on either side and relieve the pressure. No help for the Knee and now has the same pain in her back. She never got involved much in the woodturning but none the less she is still my helper.

Thank you to everybody, Merissa reads these posts and she gets overwhelmed but I have to make reference to you Larry (ljpilcher@suddenlink) and your wife's situation.

It's bad enough that we can suffer so much from issues such as the ones of Merissa, she is only 44 years old while I'm a 60 years old fart, but she got "hammered" pretty bad with this rheumatoid arthritis, her right knee and hip are half destroyed and pains associated with that are enough to drive anyone up the wall however, one would believe/expect that surgeries such as the ones your wife has been exposed to would minimize the pain and that didn't seem to have happened so, it makes the possibility of surgery(ies) that in Merissa's case were rejected due to her being still too young, a proposition that goes from a possible solution to an extra aggravation and that is not something that I would like to see Merissa going through.

My wife Merissa has been a lot more than a "helper" with the trees/wood/timbers,she has been my HELPER in every step of my life since I met her 17 years ago, a 24/7 companion/partner that I wish I had met long ago.

Did I say that I love her very much..?

Cheers
George
