Back from Iowa

I made it back from Iowa to see my doctor for my checkup. Overall he is quite pleased with my progress. I will just keep doing what Im doing and I will see him again in two years. I always get a little disappointed after my appointments. Intellectually I know that there isn't much else that can be done for me but Im always hoping that there will be some new med or treatment (not surgery I had enough) to make my life just a little easier. Of course there isn't so I don't know why I expect something. Just wishful thinking I guess.

PS- I found out that wearing a neck brace in the airport makes you a target for extra security screening. I was pulled aside at every security checkpoint, patted down, wanded, hands swabbed etc. Thankfully the titanium in my neck did not set off any alarms. It was quite an experience.
