Big K Update

Right now I feel like I've been beaten with a Louisville slugger, but the surgeon assured me that everything went well. My compression fracture created some extra challenges, but he feels that he was still able to achieve a very good result, with that vertebrae and one other. It may take 2-3 days to get over the "beaten to a pulp" feeling, but then I hope to gradually feel a little better every day.

I've been so focused on pain relief, I forgot to even ask if I got my inch back. Just think -- I could be back to my original, lofty height of 5'!

P.S. Last night at dinner, Sis brilliantly noted that on Planet Starbucks, we are "tall."

Hey Cranky;

You did it! Glad you are better and...taller.

Be well. :)

Thanks, John. Although in my case, the appropriate term is probably "less short."

I'm so glad you got through the surgery. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help!!

Rest up
