Matthew’s surgery went just great. He was able to walk and eat and wiggle all his fingers and toes as soon as he woke up from the anesthesia. And he reports that the pain from the herniated disc poof, is gone. As is the worrisome numbness and tingling he was beginning to feel. We’ll see how sore he is today when he’s *not* on a morphine drip when he wakes up. But I’m so relieved.
He’s got to take it easy for the next month, but that’s to be expected.
Thanks for all the kind thoughts and well wishes, everyone!
Yay! I’m glad it went so well. Hope he heals quick!
Thanks! And yah, we’re all hoping for speedy healing. I’m just so glad he’s mending and no longer hurting.
I am glad that all went well. May you both have an easy and quick recovery!
I love it when a plan comes together!
Isn’t it great when the doctors really do know what they’re doing? I’m happy for you!
Re: I love it when a plan comes together!
Oh definitely. I don’t mind a mountain of screw ups at all if it means the actual doctoring part is done well.
Very glad to hear it. 🙂
Glad things worked out!
Oh gawd, me too!
