I  am a writer, a poet. My poetry is deep, dark and sad, I write a lot about death, but I can write happy if I want to and do. I love art, classical music, reading, nature, meditation, dancing.  I collect old books, vintage clothing and jewelry,  I seem to like anything aged,  I adore the old apartment where I live with my cat.

Prayers for Charlie Smith

Blog Posted:5/14/2019 2:05:00 PM

Charlie Smith, a member of Poetry Soup is in a rehab hospital and needs our prayers.  I received a message from him today that reads as follows - he also wanted me to thank all for their thoughts and prayers . . .

Thank you Constance for your kind words, I’m in a rehabilitation hospital following a 7 hour spine surgery. I’ve got more metal on my spine than you can believe. I’m afraid they’re not through. They have found a cyst constricting another part that’s gonna have to come out. I’m trying to re-learn how to walk. Got my i-pad so maybe, if I can hold my attention span long enough, I can catch up on some reading. These pain pills take their toll. I miss you all, I hope to be in full swing soon. Love, Charlie

All my prayers and best wishes, Charlie, (and thanks for letting us know, Constance) ... I am counting on a rapid recovery and greatly improved quality of life, my friend! I have assisted in such surgery, and they have made some amazing breakthroughs in the years since I was in the OR ... you are in good hands! Blessings, My Poet Brother - you're in our thoughts! :-)

Hi Charlie, I was in rehab four years ago. Prayers and my iPad saved my life. I was able to communicate and took many pictures. I was determined to get out. I did. I had to learn to walk all over again. But I bought into no negativity from MD or staff. It's not an easy go. Will put you on A prayer list, Charlie. Remember, you are in God's hands every second and now~ in my heart. Love, Panagiota Romios
