I had major back surgery on Dec. 12th. I had a spinal fusion and a disc replacement done. The surgery took 8 1/2 hours and I was in the hospital for 4 days. I now have a 17 1/2 cm scar on my lower back! Got to come home on Dec 15th so I was home for my 27th birthday on the 16th. I have been recovering at home ever since. It was tough at first to get up and around, but I am getting better everyday. Hoping to be able to get up to Cadillac, MI sometime soon so I can see Mom and see all my CP kids that she has been lovingly taking care of for me. Just wanted to let everyone know what has been going on with me.
