Here I am all decked out in the surgery garb prep...guess all the color coordination is on purpose to make you cheerful for the up coming event!
This next picture is post op...OMG! Had I known that a MIDLIFF surgery was so painful I might not have had it done! In layman terms it was a spinal fusion and laminectomy with screws and plates. Evidently they had something go south with the drilling of the first screw and broke out the anterior portion of the vertebrae and had to drill another hole to put a screw and plate into...OMG! I am not for sure if I ended up with 2 or 3 screws but according to the doctor he wasn't real happy with it all. The nurses evidently screwed up and didn't give me the meds I was suppose to have gotten or the ice pack machine to my back or I really bruised something horribly. The bed I am in here was faulty and the mattress ended up trashed after they took me out of it!!
I didn't get the swap ATC done before this happened so hopefully they will be done and in the mail this next week. Take care and see you again soon with pictures of my desk!
