Mission accomplished...

No not that ill-gotten, self-serving, unconscionable, etc., etc. mission. I'm referring to "Mission Crack-n-Back". As you may or may not be assuming, and we all know what happen when one assumes, you would assume correctly that I am out the other end of my surgery. I won't make this long as we only got back yesterday (your Wednesday - my Thursday), and I can only sit for periods of 10 - 30 minutes before I have to get up and move around.

So real quickly, the surgery went off without a hitch. (YEAH) I'm not in as much pain as I thought. (YEAH) I'm forced to use muscles that I would not normally use all the time to offset and protect my back, and those muscle being used to protect and serve are what's really painful. (BOO) It will be 2 - 6 weeks before I'm basically up to speed with most normal activities like doing the laundry etc.
(yes that includes all activities, if you know what I mean) (BOO)

OK, I need to go for now but will try to make a better post when I can sit a little longer. Thanks everyone for all of your kind, sweet word of encouragement and well meaning. Your comments and notes meant so very much to me. I appreciate that you care and I hope I can return the same in kind some day ten fold.

It sounds good. I know what you mean by the pain from the healthy muscles that are getting over used. I assume you've been given something for the pain.

Get well quickly (as though you wouldn't try as much as possible without such advice ;-)
