The time is here...getting up in 8 hrs for the 2 hr drive to the hospital for my 9:30 check-in and 11:30 surgery. I'm not looking forward to tomorrow, but really I am ready to start recovering and feeling better. The time crept up really fast on me.
Going to bed now, but I'll be sure to update once I'm able...possibly before I get discharged.
Everyone take care of your backs/necks and yourselves,and I'll see you on the other side my friends.





  • Bryan, good luck with your fusion. I hope all goes great and your recovery is fast!!! Take care, Brenda C.
  • You are in my thoughts. That's quite a trip to the hospital. I hope your travel is safe and your surgery goes off without a hitch! Then the recovery.

    We can trade notes on recovery!

    Good luck, Bryan.

    That really is quite the drive you have ahead for yourself. Wishing you a smooth ride.
    I love how you went right into feeling your recovery and feeling better on the other side of the surgery.
    You sound so upbeat and positive...more than half the battle! :)

    Wishing you the very best!
