So here are some sad looking pictures. I cant move much right now but I'll be back better than ever soon.
This was right after I came out of surgery, lots of pain and discomfort but the first thing I did was make sure I could move my legs...everything works.
We busted out of the hospital a little early, I figure I can be miserable at home just as easy as in a hospital room.
The doc slit my throat to get to the spine and yes there is a big scar and yes my throat is killing me.
And I have 30 days of wearing this C-collar. I still use the cain for balance because I cant look down but I am starting to feel human again and plan to start running after my 3 months of light duty is over.
So, 56K later I may have just had the surgery that will significantly improve my quality of life. Thankfully I have my beautiful wife Holly to tend to me along with Judy and Chris. And it felt so good to get home. This is but a temporary blip and in a month or so I will be out cutting wood, planting winter wheat, and getting back to working the farm.
