Surgery day

Today is the surgery on TJ's back.

Six months ago, she had a similar surgery done which fixed the pain issue in her right leg. At that time the DR told her it might reoccur. Not only did it reoccur, it came back with a vengeance.

She was scheduled to be at the hospital at 10:30 AM, but the hospital called and told her to be there at 9:30 AM instead. "The sooner the better," she says.

We will be leaving the house, with everyone in tow, around eight o'clock. I will take the laptop with me to fight the boredom of hospital waiting rooms and to keep everyone updated. The family will get the text messages. Some will get e-mails. Some will catch the news right here.

UPDATE 1: 11:30 AM .. The drugs have begun to take effect .. she is in surgery prep .. all looks good so far.

UPDATE 2: 4:30 PM .. Surgery finished .. Leg pain gone .. back sore, but from surgery .. In room .. awaiting OT so she can go home!!

UPDATE 3: 7:53 PM .. We are home !!

TJ will update ya on all the details. I won't steal her thunder.

Keep her in your prayers.
