JIM UPDATE

Up at 3:30 a.m. I really wanted to shoot that alarm clock. Made it to the hospital by 5:00 and surgery was at 7:30.

Jim came through the surgery with flying colors. However, he doesn’t think so yet. He’s feeling pretty miserable this afternoon so I left and came home to take care of the girls. I’ll check on him later tonight.

The surgeon said everything went really well and he was very pleased with it. He actually ended up working on three vertebrae in the lower back and said it was a big surgery. Also said it should definitely give Jim some relief.

I’m really tired so I’ll give you another update tomorrow.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and best wishes. I know the Lord heard and answered the prayers.

  6. Thank goodness, Sandie. Been thinking of Jim all day. He'll be like a new man once the initial pain from surgery is past. I had three done in my neck 25 years ago and it was like being reborn, again. I hope Jim has the same pain relief. Get some rest.

  16. The first couple of days, you are too focused on the trauma of the injury to be objective about the outcome. I am certain that once beyond this near term pain, the overall outcome will be very positive. Hang in there and it will all be behind you..... Rod
