Just a quick note to say that Thursday was my first day back to work, and everything went spectacularly well. I worked the whole day Thursday and Friday with no residual side effects. I took my lumbar cushion and made sure to move around after sitting 20-30 minutes or so.
Now it's to PT to start working on strengthening my core muscles. Four weeks of that and that's it -- no more focus on health issues!
Thought y'all might enjoy a positive-outcome message. I hope all is well in your corner of the world.
