    Thanks for the pre-surgery get well gift, surgery is planned for Friday July 6

    Hi all. A box from Thez showed up on my doorstep the other day with a gift in it and a get well card signed "your TF family" When I thanked her Thez said that it was from a whole lot more folk than her but she had been chosen to mail it.

    As most of you know, in July 2010 I had a two level fusion in my lower back with rods and screws inserted. Well one of the fusions never healed and two of the screws are loose. The plan was to go in and regraft the nonfused area and then reinforce the screws plus add another rod. Well yesterday, as I moved at work I managed to rupture a disc two levels up from where the work was to be done. So now it will be a more extensive procedure than planned.

    So I will be going in to the hospital either tomorrow afternoon or Friday morning, it's up to my doc, he will decide tomorrow. I will try and keep in touch when I can by phone but am leaving my laptop at home.

    So I wil update this when I leave to go there and after that, see you all next week sometime.

    My best wishes to you, that it goes well and you heal well, and that you come out better for it. I myself had two back surgeries this last year, and ended up missing 6 months of work. Horrible year. In any case, good luck.
