My husband, Jim, underwent a fairly serious back surgery last Monday, and life has taken on a whole new rhythm for us both since then. The surgery which involved two fusions and a break-repair went well. He was released from the hospital on Wednesday evening to come home, but there have been some complications involving surgery and medication in general that he’s had to deal with. We are so pleased that his strength and ability to do things, like roll from a reclining position to a sitting one, are slowly returning, and both of us are anxious to get through these early days. Fortunately, we are blessed to have family close by who have been supportive and ready to help out when needed. Thanks to all of you who have sent their love and prayers to him. They’ve meant a lot and have been very successful. We’re looking forward to the pain-free days and a bit more mobility which, hopefully, await him following the eventual physical therapy and exercise that he will be assigned.
