I am grateful to him and the so many of my childhood friends, some of whom I had lost touch with for more than a decade who rushed to do practical things to make things better for me.
I am thinking of Fabrice Tenga, Yves Fotso, Claude Tadonki, Eric Sile, and many others
I am also grateful to people that I did not know who stood up for me. I am thinking of Erin & Mary Anastasi, Beth Williams , and many others too numerous to name
Thanks for your comforting words, prayers and actions. They have truly made a difference for me. I had my latest surgery on Tuesday 06/09 in Beijing, China at Chuiyangliu Hospital. It lasted for eight hours, a combination of 4 operations. - I had one operation to transfer abdominal muscles to my quadriceps. If this succeeds I will someday be able to lift my leg upwards or climb stairs without aid. It is too early to say any thing about it. I just know right now that my abs hurt from having muscles poached from it. This operation is what makes Prof. Qin so unique to me. Every time I suggested such a surgery to a physician in the US or Europe, they dismissed me as if was insane. - I had one operation to remove nails from my tibia bones from the previous surgery. - I had one operation to further correct mild talipes equinus (foot bent forward) on my foot - I had one operation to further eliminate knee contractures that remained despite 2 years intense physical therapy
I am still bed stricken but my room was specially wired to allow me to use the internet from my bed. It helps keep me somewhat busy.
I have a 4 Gigabite size recording of the essential parts of the surgery that prof Qin kindly provided to me. I think it can teach a lot to many in need and I will post some of it when practically possible.
This blog is currently blocked in China for reasons I do not know and I am making this post using a very cumbersome proxy.
