I was born in NYC and have lived on Long Island all my life. I studied fine art and interior design. I worked in the trade until 2009 when I literally woke up one morning unable to walk and in constant severe pain. Since then nothing has changed. My son Alex died of leukemia in 1997. FAG has been a WONDERFUL place to stay connected to him. I thank all the kind people I've met on this site for their friendship and support.
10/12/14 Again I ask your indulgence as I continue this saga. On 9/27 I was admitted yet again to the hospital. On top of everything else, I have 4 herniated lumbar discs. On 10/3/14 I was placed in a wonderful Rehabilitation Care Center here on LI. The OT PT dept are outstanding. I'm up to 3hrs a day 1to1 therapy and they are optimistic I will walk again. I'm dealing with the pain without opiates. I'm determined. It's going to be a long road. I will start trying to make visits on my down time when I have energy. I'll start with the top and work my way through so please be patient I'll get there and will visit as often as I can. God bless you all.
RE: Hi! Hello here's my email Bronzesrv@gmail.com So sorry I dropped out of touch so quick.I had another attack and went right back into the hospital, right after the last time I message you. I then loaned my brother my phone cause his new one was defective and he needed something to communicate with his kids with while he was working. so I let him have mine until he got his replaced. I am on my tablet right now which is why I gave you my email. However my phone number is the same and once I get my phone back to myself I will be texting you as well as email and a call when i can! Theres so much to catch up on.
RE: How have you been doing? Allison, I'm glad to hear from you. I've been concerned, and I was hoping your health would be improved. Sorry it isn't. I didn't know you were moving. How is that going? Will your situation be improved by the move?
RE: Hi! OMG! MISSED YOU SO MUCH! Believe it or not, I'd gotten a new phone too and lost a lot of emails and phone numbers. Id been in Cleveland Rehab clinic, hadn't been online in months. I was finally able to unlock my phone this past month, I will text you soon! Love and miss you too!
Good to hear from you Allison, may God bless you always. I will definitely be praying for you. I hope you feel so much better soon, sweet lady. Enjoy the Hallmark movies. You know my mom would have also. Hugs to you, Michele.
Msg from Traci's mom Allison, I'm sorry I haven't contacted you before so much time has passed. I was hoping you were feeling better. Sorry you're not. I will keep praying for you. Hang in there, good friend.
I will visit Alex today and leave a flower for him.
My Grandfather's Angel Day Dear Allison: Thank you for visiting my grandfather on his Angel Day. He meant the world to me, and when he left us, he took my 7 year old heart with him. I will always cherish his memory, and long for the day when I will be reunited with him, where there will be no more goodbyes....only sweet and joyful love with our precious family members and friends.
