    The surgery took 2 hours longer than scheduled but it is succesfull. I just got home and am very weak and tired. I would like to thank everybody for their support and prayers with the knowledge that it worked. The last thing my wife said before I went out was "please come back to me". The Lord saw fit to keep me here for a while longer.
    I have to lay down for a while.

    I love you all

    Your here to tell your story, and that's the important part. Good to hear things went well, I hope the pain in your back subsides and gives you respite from pain.

    Dick, great news now don't give "your" nurse a hard time because it sounds like she truly loves you. She could have asked if the insurance was paid up.HAHAHAHA:D

    One great thing about this forum that that people here actually care about the others. I'm pleased that the prayers and support you got not only here but from your family and other friends helped.

    I am surprised to see you home so quickly, but I'm sure your insurance company had your best interest in mind when they insisted that you go home right after surgery.:rolleyes:

    take it easy and go at your own pace.

    Get some rest, and don't go driving your trains until the medication wears off! :);)
