I finally had my back surgery on May 7, and came home May 12. I still haven’t been terribly motivated to use the PC much. I’m in bed a lot of the time and trying to use the laptop is somewhat complicated and uncomfortable. I’m not yet able to sit long enough to use the desktop, plus it’s difficult to get into a chair. My surgery included three incisions: one across my abdomen where they went in to remove the bad disk, on in my him where they did a bone graft, and one (two small ones actually) in my lower back where they went in to add the bone screws to imobilize my spine to allow the fusion to fuse. Fun stuff. Recovery period is six to eight weeks, during which time I’ll be doing aqua therapy, physical therapy and walking up to five miles every day. I’ll probably be in the best shape I’ve ever been once it’s all finished.
Found out this past Saturday that I have pneumonia and I haven’t been terribly motivated to even turn on the pc. I’m feeling much better now, though, so I’ll try to start posting more regularly.
Liam has changed a lot since I posted last, I’ll need to write up a post all about him soon.
