note 2

Another short note to let y’all know that the operation was a success – noticed that the burning, cramping and numbness was gone in the recovery room. Stayed the night Friday night – long night – kind of miserable – several factors – came home Sat. and that made me feel much better. Not a very good weekend – pain involved – started turning around a bit on Monday and Tuesday – today has been a little up and down but still pretty good.

I’m limited to only sitting 20 minutes at a time and as you know, that is a problem when trying to compose anything intelligible. Nonetheless, I have been pecking away at something concerning the whole experience to send a little later. Just want to tell y’all how much I appreciate your expressions of concern and your wishes, but especially your prayers. In spite of being somewhat miserable; I can still see the hand of God in the success of the operation and now in the beginnings of my recovery.

Thanks again, hope to be back on a regular basis very soon. ec

To all - Thank y'all so much for your kind comments and wishes - it's been a bit rough but things seem to be a bit better now. My worst problems have not come from the back surgery but from side issues. Not the least of which was a very upset digestive system - I will not go into details but I'm sure most of you have been there at some time or another.

This lasted over a week but thankfully is now back to normal for the last three days. Then was the wry neck - exacerbated by the lying around. This is under treatment by my back cracker.

Main issue seems to be muscle and joint soreness that I had at first associated with the back problem. This was not the case and is a mystery at the moment to my doc. Tests have been and are now being run to get to the bottom of this.

Meanwhile, I am still not supposed to sit very long at the computer and I'm having to do this in short periods. Am posting today a bit about my "adventure" and will do more as my time and back will allow.

Thanks again for your kind remarks and show of concern, it is much appreciated. ec
