Will be out of the loop for a day


I am having neck surgery, so I will be offline for a day. I do wish I could have something to eat right now, due to it is hurry up and wait for the doc to get done with the two ahead of me.

Best wishes Greg - I hate that no eating after midnight stuff. Hopefully, everything goes well and you recover quickly!

Hope all goes well!

I have problems with my innards and sometimes have to starve myself for tests; hate it. But food tastes even better after waiting!

They had to grind off a bunch of bone spurs, but otherwise the outcome was a lot better than they thought. Only fused two cervical vertrebra.

Popsicles are better than I remember them as a kid.

Just got home, so now time to rest. I did not get any sleep last night.

Bud, I fell like I fell off of a horse right now, along with a really bad sore throat.

Yeah, intubation sore throat is pretty sucky. Sorry to say that you will probably feel worse tomorrow. Follow your doctor's orders. And take care of yourself.

I really hope you get some relief for your neck/back from the surgery. Chronic pain is a PITA.

It got worst over the past 8 years Leah. They fused C4-C5 & C6-C7, so I got lucky. They have me on Norco right now, but just a low dose. My regular doc said that I should not have a body of a senior citizen for only being 44. Now at least once I heal, I can get back to working on finishing the remodel on my kitchen.

Glad to see you back online after your surgery and good luck with your recovery. My mother had a spinal fusion performed and I can empathize with what you are going through.
