Okay, deed has been done, just got home from the hospital

Okay..suregry time was moved up to 11:45 Friday (July 6) in the morning. I now have a three level fusion (S1-L3) with wire cages filled with bone chips/marrow,new screws and bone graft going up the posterior of the whole area.
On Sunday I started spiking high fevers and gwtting horrible left sided groin pains. Multiple cultures (blood, urine, etc) and xrays later they decided the fevers were due to atelectisis and the pain was following the tract from posterior to anterior that the doc took to gain the graft materials.
Glad to be home though.
