Hello everyone, the day has fnally come, just dropping my daughter to her frends for first day back at school (2nd year of high school) wth her clothes and the dog, then coming back to get my hospital bag ready. Got to be at the hospital for 1pm today then having my op tomorrow (Microdiscectomy on L4/L5 S1.) Well scared, my friend is coming up to see me tonight so I can go outside the hospital and smoke something stupid (plan is to give u tomorrow!!!!) We will see about that, may be the excuse I need to get up and about!!!! Will be going to stay with my friend for a week when they let me out on Saturday hopefully so will hopefully be back online then to update you all with my progress. Thanks for all the PM and well wishes. Please think of me as petrified!!!!!
