    Ok guys...the surgery was a little rough. More compression than showed on the MRI's. He did a laminectomy on T10 and T11 and a partial on T9 .

    I woke up in some serious pain. OMG I would have all three kids again concurrently and it wouldn't hurt as much. I do not do well with pain meds or anesthetics. They make me sick to my stomach and I really haven't ate since Sunday. Yesterday just sips of water and that didn't stay down.

    Not in pain now except when I move my back. I was fitted for a special brace and I got up out of bed this afternoon and walked. Hope to get out of ICU and into a regular room tonight. Hope to go home Thursday or Friday.

    Thanks for the thoughts, prayers and the carrot cupcake from Gunslinger. I hope to be in my saddle in 2 or 3 months!

    My wife still has her $1800 Ninja Turtle shell back brace from her lower back fusion. I'm and so happy to see you posting in here. Good to know you will be back in the saddle again soon, but will continue with the prayers til the report of a complete healing has come..

    I am now out of ICU and in a private room. OMG getting out of the bed and onto the wheelchair was like being ran over in a stampede. It was a long ride over as the private rooms are in a separate building. Then when I got here getting out of the chair into the bed was painful as all get out. I know that it will take a while to heal the cut and the muscles that were cut. I told my son I was sure it felt like the scene from the Predator with Arnold Schwarzenegger when the Predator reached down and pulled out that guy's spine and skull. I have a pretty high threshold for pain but this has me whipped. Ugh. I will be following all instructions so I an get better!!!

    Denise I am so happy to see your posts & know that you are done with the surgery!!

    Are you getting discharged tomorrow? Usually once a person up and walking, you are ready for home

    Good luck in your recovery. My prayers are with you. You're tough, if you have three kids. You can do this, too. Just think of riding in the new spring/summer grass, watching the trail between your horse's ears. Gather your family and horse pictures around you, until you're riding again. Hang in there!

    Thanks y'all. The girl that has her horse pastured next to Biscuit and Sarge took pictures of them yesterday and posted them for me. That was so sweet of her.

    I got out and walked twice today - going around 3 times the second time - the PT was pretty happy with that. I am going again in a few minutes. I want to ride my horse soon.
