Surgery Update

edited 2:38AM in EggHead Forum
Have been out of the hospital 8 days from two major spinal surgeries, three days apart. Actually, these are spinal surgeries 5 & 6...

I "collect" them. B)

Thanks to all who have wished me well. I'm now easily going up and down stairs... sitting is most difficult, so will not be spending much time at the computer.

However, that said, having friends over this coming Friday. My Eggs are lonely... More Tri-Tip, roasted potatoes and who knows what all, comin' up!

Best to All!

    Glad to hear things are getting better.

  • Two surgeries! Don't collect any more! Glad to hear you are on the mend. Listen to your Dr. and don't overdo rehab. We'll be here when you can go again. ;)
  • Damn sorry to hear that Broc. I've had 3 surgeries in my life. One for a hernia, 2 for torn rotator cuff. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
  • I brag about my one-time back surgery to anyone who will listen and some who prefer not to listen, but you, my friend, could write a book.

    I hope this is the one for you.
