Hi everyone. I'm home. Had to get a transfusion during surgery and another while in the hospital but ok now. Also got an infection but that was the worst of the medical issues. The other problem was that on the 4th day (I had to stay 6 days) with the med issues, myer son had to call the nurse manager. They were not doing their job. Later on that. Anyways, it is day 8 and I am doing well. Manuevering the Walker has become a cake walk. and I have even used the cane a few times. Hubby is going a great job taking care of me. Staples come out on Tuesday.


DDD, 2 lower discs pretty much gone. Grade 2+ Spondylothesis. Severe bone spurs and Facet issues. ESI’s, Rhizotomy, Chiropractic adjustments, Roxicodone 15mg 4x daily or as needed, Soma 350mg 2x daily, Neurontin 300mg 3x daily. Heating pad, Tens Machine.

2 Cor 4:16 - Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
