Sometime tomorrow morning is the day for my back surgery. The hospital will call today to tell me a time to be there. I had some requests to do a reminder entry when the time got closer. I am hoping for a new beginning of being pain free or at least not nearly as much pain as I have been having. I will be going to Saint Vincent's Hospital in Birmingham Alabama for the surgery.
If I do ok after surgery in the morning then they will have me up walking that afternoon. Then if I am still doing ok they will start physical therapy on Wednesday morning. I am thinking they probably show me some exercises. If I am doing ok then I can come home on Wednesday. If not then I will be there a few more days. They have already told me to take it easy for three weeks afterwards, to walk around some and not lift over five pounds. I am going to follow instructions
to a T.
I want to take this opportunity to once again thank everyone for your prayers and good thoughts. I will ask all of you to please keep remembering me in your prayers and good thoughts for a safe surgery and a fast healing time. I am thanking you all in advance. I have no idea how long it will be until I can do another post.
Love and hugs to you all.
Have a blessed week everyone.
