I'll add my name to the others who are wishing you well. I know it can take time (having been there, done that! LOL), and sitting at a computer isn't the best position while you're healing.

Just know we're thinking of you.

Hydrangea, I'm rooting for you too! I know that if you don't have a laptop it may be awhile before we here from you. Do be careful sitting for too long after you get home. I remember after my lumbar fusion that if I tried to sit at the computer too long my leg & foot would start to get numb. Just take it easy and rest, follow your doctors orders and try to walk a little each day to get the fusing underway.

I'm sure you'll be in alot of pain at first but it will pass believe me. Remember to roll onto your side before getting up from a lying position.
