Tomorrow is the day of the surgery I have been waiting forever on....8am our time, I will go in for a corpectomy in my c-spine.  They are removing 2 vertabrae and 3 discs.  Stressed and panicky, but I know it will be ok.   Have a great Neurosurgeon and he has a wonderful surgical staff.  I am packed and ready as I will be getting.  Asking for your thoughts and prayers...even our travel is worrysome...We are in Ok. and still feeling the effects of the snowstorm with more to come Mondays...hope I am home by then!!

Praying your surgery and recovery go well and that you don't have any travel problems.

We were hit by the blizzard here, too. We have five foot snow drfits. We worked all day to get a path for one vehicle to get out of the driveway. It would have to be our four wheel drive truck, though. There is ice under the snow.

BTW, we lived in Edmond, OK for a few years. Nice place.

Praying for safe travel, guidance for the surgeon's hands, and a comfortable, speedy recovery. Good luck to you!
