for their amazing support and kind words, i've only been a member for a short time and I can see already how amazingly supportive and caring this website is. I've already made a firm friend out of it.
I have 16 hours until my ALIF surgery and I have to say i've never been so nervous for any of my previous surgeries as I am with this one. I keep feeling the need to say proper goodbyes to everyone not just see you in a week or so, I know it's melodramatic but this one has serious risks attached.
Any way thanks again and i'll post when I return and keep supporting people here as you've all supported me.
