This can't be bad.........


Just visited with the nurse at the surgery center and she tells me that my surgeon is the best at the Surgery Center. I was rather apprehensive about this surgery but after speaking with her, not so much anymore. She called for my health history and to take my order for any specail foods, drinks or magazines that I might like. I did tell her a margaurita would be nice!! OK I'm sitcking to Diet Coke. This place sounds like heaven, I even have heated towels!! I might never want to leave! My surgery will be done while laying on my back with my arms tucked under me and my legs lowered, sounds like a vunerable position huh? It will take 2-3 hours and I will have to lay on my tummy for awhile, hard to watch major tv that way but I bet I figure a way to do that. My family can be with me and there is a pull down bed for one of them to stay if they like. They also get a preference for food, drink and books. I should have instant relief for my back with the major pain coming from the hip area where they take the bone. I guess it is just a tiny amount of bone but still painful. A little pain............I can handle that! So it is just 6 days and counting, I have waited for back relief for almost 30 years so I am looking forward to this day. Thanks for all the encouragment and prayers.

Oh Bob....I can't wait for your relief! My back problem isn't half as bad as yours but hurts just the same. Not the same but it hurts, you know what I mean8) I am so glad that after all this time you get to be "pain free"...YAY!! You are and will be in my prayers the whole time and for recovery, which does sound awesome! Need anything let me know. And if you can do those pictures just call, if not, then we wait...Love ya!!
