I finally got my date for my back surgery. It will be on December 4th. The Orthopedic and Neurosurgeon will re-build my lumbar area with rods, screws, and bone from my hip. It will be a very long & complex procedure. Hoping to only be in the hospital for about 1 week. Then at home for several months of recuperation & then physical therapy.
I'm trying to maintain a positive outlook & be well enough to stand on my own 2 feet for the Mid-Atlantic Round-up! Wish me luck...I'll need it!
