I have not been on much. I apologize. I had lower back surgery almost two weeks ago;fusion of the L5-S1 vertebrae. It has been one tuff ordeal. But things are getting better. My wife and kids are a true Blessing from God. They have taken care of my every need. My in home therapist and nurses are my heroes as well. I am so blessed. I hope to be cookin again in a few weeks and hope to be fly fishin and huntin in a few months. With all this pain I can hardly imagine doing those things right now, but compared to a week ago, I am starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel. I am now off the walker and using a cane. Been off the powerful meds since last Friday morning. Just using over the counter Tylenol now. So, I wanted my friends here to know what was going on and ask your Prayers for my continued improvement. Love you all.
