It's all over!

Hey everyone. It's 7:50 PM and I'm at home on the computer. I'm trying to stay as still as possible and very calm. Misty is doing an excellent job taking care of me. The pain in my leg is 99% gone, which is where the worst pain was. The only thing I'm dealing with now is the pain from where they cut me open. I'm a little sore and stiff, but I think I'm going to make it. God is really good to us. We knew we were going to have to pay for part of this surgery and we didn't really know how we were going to afford it. We got home and got them mail, and we had received an escrow check from the bank. Not only that, but our monthly payment went down on our house by $7 a month. That doesn't sound like a lot, but when we're trying to pay for a surgery and all kinds of other things, every little bit helps. So God is really helping us out a lot. Well, until next time, take care everyone.

Early in the morning

well, it's 4:20 AM and I am sitting down to write this post. I have been up since about 5 after 4. My back hurts so bad that I can't sleep. I toss and turn trying to find a comfortable position, but that position doesn't exist. I'm so thankful that today is the day. It may be early and I may be hurting, but today I get my back fixed. I have heard a lot of success stories of others who have had the same or same type of surgery as I am having. Some that said as soon as they woke up, the pain was gone and they felt better. One guy I know is golfing just 3 months after his. Not that I'll be golfing in December or anything. At 11:30 I have my appointment to fix my back. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers today. I know with all of the terrible things happening in the world, my back is pretty insignificant in the scheme of things. That is true, it really is. But I would still appreciate it a lot. Well, I don't know what else to say. I can't eat anything so there's no breakfast for me at 4 AM. I don't really know what else to do. Guess I'll turn on the TV or draw or something. See you all later after I wake up. Peace.
