We’re Back

GRANITE FALLS, NC (July 1, 2021) — Hi Everyone, I apologize for not giving an update sooner. I underwent extensive spinal surgery on May 13 and the first three weeks after my surgery were quite difficult. I have never experienced such severe pain in my entire life – thankfully, it appears that I am past that now. My doctor anticipates it will take at least two years for maximum recovery – I am really hoping that this is not the case.

The recovery has been slow with small signs of improvement everyday. Some days are better than others. Post operatively I lost the use of my right hand so I cannot type. With assistance from my wife we are eager to return to sharing news with our readers. I also haven’t driven a car much since last November and do not know when I will be able to do so again, but will rely on my wife’s assistance to get around. Thank you for your patience during this time of adjustment.
