Surgery Update

Just wanted to say that I got surgery yesterday on my back.  They did a microdiscectomy and were able  to remove a lot of the herniated disk.  The whole thing was super quick, we got there around 9:30 and were on our way home by a bit after 3:30.  Yep, home.  My mom is here helping me and recovery so far is going well.  I feel a bit like I’ve been hit by a bus, very sore and stiff, BUT my leg that has been bothering me so much feels pretty much normal!  Yay!
I’m sure I’ll be posting a ton in the next few weeks as I’ll be home alone recovering.  I’m so glad to have this over with.  And so very grateful for and overwhelmed by  the amazing generosity and love that I have been getting my both my wonderful friends and family.  I am truly blessed to have such amazing people in my life.
Life is good.
