Surgery in Morning

Hi everybody!

I'm being admitted for surgery at 5:30 am Pacific Time tomorrow morning, April 8th. I am having a 1 to 4 level Laminectomy on my Cervical Spine, as well as bone spurs removed C-3 thru C-7.

An RN called me today and asked a whole lot of questions. I think I was on the phone for an hour with her. I am not allowed to bring anything in with me except my Insurance Card. My wife will bring my bag with my robe, a book and toiletries when she gets off work.

I'll let you all know when I get home and am able how it went. I'm not particularly nervous or worried at the moment. Maybe I will be in the morning. I'll just be happy to have it done.

I'm told I'll be in the hospital 1 to 3 days probably.

Thanks for good thoughts, prayers, however you wish me the best,

Ken GreyEagle
