I'm home, doing good

Hey friends! I thought I'd post just real quick, let you know I got home from the hospital yesterday afternoon. The 2.5 hour car ride home sucked! I'm doing great, though, no more back pain, ONLY incision pain. It's really amazing, so happy. I have a big 6 or 7 inch long incision on my belly, and then 4 surprise 1 inch ones in the back. They did the anterior/posterior fusion instead of only anterior. I can walk a bit, and can only sit in a sraight chair for 30 minutes at a time. Otherwise, I'm laying down. I'm on a lot of drugs. I actually drew a reindeer yesterday, and I might be able to watercolor it tonight!!! If I can, I'll post it.

Merry Christmas! Thank you all for your love and support and prayers! I'll be back in no time!

Hi Kira,
I was thinking about you and wondering how your surgery went this last week. I'm so glad to hear that it went well and that you're not in pain any more, even if you do have a few suprise scars :o)
I hope you're feeling better by leaps and bounds very soon!
Merry Christmas!
Lisa
