Update on my daughter

Hello everybody, First let me thank all of you for your prayers, good thoughts and comments about my daughter's surgery.
She came through the surgery fine. One of her friends from school took her and called me often for an update. My back was not in shape to go and sit through the surgery. The doc did release her to come home several hours after the surgery with the condition that someone be with her for twenty four hours. Her friend brought her here to spend the night and she wanted to go on home this morning. I did lay in the backseat of the car and went with Ken to take her. She has called me a couple of times today saying her back was hurting pretty much. I think she is going to call the doc's office first thing in the morning and see if they will fax in a prescription for some muscle relaxers to go along with the pain med he gave her.

Here are some azaleas and a Japanese snowball bush that have already put out and in bloom in our yard.

  14. Good to hear the news about your daughter. Hopefully she has gotten in touch with her doc and got some extra pain relief.

    Your flowers are just lovely. My white azalea just bloomed. Not so good, but I'm glad it did bloom. I rescued it last season and it was almost dead. So, it seems to like it's new place in the garden.

    If the rains don't beat the flowers too bad I'll try and get some pics.

    You have a great day and take care of your back.

  20. I know many people now that have had back surgery. My sister says she is OK sitting down at home, but just a walk to the mail box causes her to have pain. She can decide if she wants another surgery after having a disc surgery years ago. I know my now 1 year old laminectomy improved after the physical therapy I got at the first of March. I was sent because of left hip pain, and working on the machines helped my back. I now have home exercises to keep up with. My surgeon left the clinic right after my surgery in April 2008, so I was on my own. I am very grateful for the surgery he did on me as I consider it a great improvement. He said eventually I would not have been able to walk because of bone growth. So my thoughts are for your daughter that she can recover to live her life with as little or no pain. Salty's front leg wound is finally healing up and will get his staples out Monday. He is wearing his head cone so that he does not lick at it and is taking more anti-biotics. mark
