Scheduled my fusion today

Well I finally bit the bullet and scheduled my 2 level posterior fusion with rods, pedicle screws and bone graft at L4-S1. I'm going in on the 3rd February.

I'm really nervous, but after my research feel this is the best option for me. Especially as half an hour of tidying yesterday gave me so much pain I didn't sleep last night. I've warned hubby about just how out of action I will be and have started preparing my kids and the house.

I'm looking at all that snow outside and thanking my lucky stars that I don't have to go out anywhere.
Happy holidays everyone!
