Did you know the number one reason people go to orthopedic doctors is for back problems.
With that dangerous fall you had on your deck, the only explanation I can think of is whatever was “out of wack” on your back went back in place. No, I don’t believe the expression EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON.
Stuff happens, some good, and other stuff not good.
By the way are you in the Adirondack mountains? You mentioned upstate N.Y. I’m from California but loved to visit the Adirondack mountains in the summer. Hamilton county in particular.
No relatives in N.Y.just a love of the area.i met many locals, and kept in contact with them thru the years.
Sad to say some are no longer living.
