I am scared nervous but excited to finally get so relief
after some recovery time. Trying to go in with a good attitude
and stay positive I put together the spare bedroom for me
card table beside bed because we have a water bed upstairs
and I know I will not be able to get out of that lol but I am getting ready. Went to store and bought all kinds of soup
because after first back surg trust me you do not want to be
to solid if you get my drift lol.. I go Oct 8th to meet with
Dr and antasteisoligist (not sure how to spell that) to go over the procedure and give blood and get a EKG done
so in a nut shell I am happy,excited,scared,nervous all at once
