Complete reconstruction of back. been fighting for 6 years. hoping for a positive change of life quality. Has really been challenging to bus building for the last  year.To My friends who prayed for a good outcome. all feels good so far. 6 days have passed have returned home with braces and good drugs that make me a little foggy  So will try not to write to much. Still finding it difficult to consentrate and form a response.   Bob

Glad to hear it's past, Bob!  Congrats and good luck with the recovery and rehab.  I know you'll be ready to get back to work on the new bus when you are able, but don't rush it.

Meantime, I promise your old bus is looking GREAT.  We're having a lot of fun with the R&R, and I think you'll be proud of the outcome when you see her again.

Cheers, John

Bob you know the deal, Ice and heat, ice and heat. Relax. Then get back to work. Rice socks work great. Fill sock with rice sew it closed, put in micro wave about 3minutes 20 seconds and wa-La forms to anything that needs heat for quite awhile.

Good luck with the back Dave5Cs Grin

Whew! You've got a lot of nerve, Bob!!!

That must have been a big decision and you're obviously a very brave man to have taken the plunge to go through with it. I'll bet they want you moving and flexing some... and sooner than later - so's you don't "seize up", huh? It is amazing how quickly you're expected to get back on your feet after some of these major surgeries.

I will echo what others have said, with, take 'er easy and careful moving about, especially when heavily sedated. Here's wishing you a speedy and full recovery! You'll be puttering around with your bus before you know it!

Best wishes,
Kevin
