I am going in Monday morning for my L4-L5 fusion with laminectomy (not sure what that is). Wish me luck! I have a lot of people praying for me! My NS said it is a 50/50 chance this will work. It just has to!!! I will be in the hospital for 2-5 days, depending on my recovery. It will be interesting when I get home as I have 4 small children (ages 7,5,3,1). My hubby will be home for 2 weeks. Then we have friends/family coming to help out. I will post when I can and am feeling up to it.
