Pass that bag of ice, will ya. I did something today I never thought I'd ever be able to do again, I played golf. Prior to all my back woes, I was a decent golfer, a 15 handicap. Today, my son and I played 9 holes of golf. I rented a golf cart out of necessity, not cause I'm lazy. I played poorly, shot a 56, but I'm the happiest man on the face of the earth. I did something normal, something that was an important part of my life B.S. (Before Spiney).

Emergency surgery in March of 2006 for spinal infection of L 2 and L 3. During surgery, discovered I had Cauda Equina Syndrome. Spine became unstable after surgery and had 360 fusion with 10 pedicle screws, plates and rods in April of 2007.
