While pushing my newfound walker to the bathroom and looking into the mirror, I said, “OMG.”
“Hey,” my wife said, “you’re still alive.”
This will serve as a brief announcement. I had two herniated disks repaired in my lower back. Surgery was a success. The pain from the herniated disks has disappeared. Now I’m dealing with the pain and stiffness from the incision. I should be back into writing form in a week. Until then, I thank all of you for your kind words.
