well it appears ok so far
      #264399 - 07/06/12 03:59 PM

the surgery went well yesterday, so far that i can tell. the pain is really bad, which i assume will subside in due time. i was nervous the night before, but once i was on the table it was to late to turn back, of corse i was so doped up i couldnt move my mouth to say so.
i wont be able to do a thing for about 6 weeks, that is except lie down and relax. but being so friggen hot out why would anyone want to do anything but stay inside?
i guess my point is i will be able to write on my blog and write here because the surgery didnt take as much out of me as i would have guessed.
my sugeon told me, i may have to wait untill this heals before the other 3 disks can be repaired too. then i get to have my ankle fused together, then theres the knee, maybe i will be so new i will be like the 6 million dollar manb, faster, stronger, see better too. lol

It's so good to hear from you!! I'm so pleased to hear you are on the mend. It sounds like you are getting great care and that your doc has a comprehensive and reasonable plan to get you well and active again.

Great to see you back!

no way im going on any brick road, too bumpy. i feel like its winter, not getting outside to tend to my garden is really getting to me. although my wife is taking good care of it. we were lucky to get some cukes, few tomatoes, radishes, and eggplant already, its so nice to just pick stuff fresh and without chemicals. i guess you can say im going green cause i dont have to start the car, just get into the yard and i know its fresh cause we pick it. maybe thats why im getting along good. just a thought.
thanks for thinking about me, i appreciate both of your concern. but how are you doing?

I'm doing pretty well. I'm enjoying a bumper crop of bananas from my trees, and the squash are threatening to devour the yard, so my little gardening activities are going well. The kids are healthy and happy and doing well in school, so I'm feeling great about that. My GF is getting over a cold, so I've been giving her lots of TLC. She's nearly got it licked now. Overall, things are good!

When do you meet with your PT's, or have you already?
