  • So sorry you have to endure another one. I hope that it goes well and you are feeling better afterwards. Your fusion hasnt been that long ago, that I hope getting that nasty infection will allw you to heal quickly. My thoughts are with you. Take care. Robin
  • they get your infection cleared up and this is the very last time you'll have to go into surgery. As much as I've had post-surgery difficulties, you are all teaching me to count my lucky stars. I pray you'll be healed after this surgery. Blessings to you.
