Surgery Update

I had surgery a week ago. The surgery went well. Recovery has been very slow but any progress is good. It’s been painful but the pain med has been working well enough to make it tolerable for the most part. It makes me foggy and I haven’t been able to read anything that requires a great deal of concentration, but I’ve been reading a book on my Cowon D2 Personal Media Player (best Birthday and Christmas money purchase I’ve ever made) and using it for Scripture memory review and watching some YouTube videos. I started reducing the dose a few days ago so I will be less foggy as time goes on.

Still too early to tell exactly how much the surgery helped but I have at least 80% less pain down my leg already and I can bend backwards a little without pain for the first time in years.

Since I still can’t spend much time sitting here and I don’t have a notebook computer, I don’t think I’ll be posting much for another week or so. I could post some questions but I can’t sit and read the answers.

I haven’t been able to comment on other blogs but am starting to catch up with reading them.

On top of everything I’m getting a cold today which is extremely bad timing. But all in all it’s going well and I want to thank you for praying.

I will post a surgery diary on my other blog at some point but it’s all on paper right now so I have to type it out at some point.

2 Corinthians 4:16-17
Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

    I’m sorry that I missed your earlier post announcing the surgery.  I am glad the surgery has so far resulted in some pain relief, and I’ll keep you in my prayers.

    Hey Jeff, glad you’re getting better!As for your fogginess, it’s good that you’re aware of it and that it can affect your judgment. Put off major decisions until your mind is clear; and keep in mind that it could affect what and how you write.Keeping you in my prayers, brother!

    Thanks again.

    Gary thanks for the good advice. I think I’ll keep my posting and commenting to a bare minimum for now.

    My last book purchase was purposely made the day before surgery so I wouldn’t place a drug induced order and wouldn’t have to be stressed about making any decisions.

    Hey Jeff! I’ve gotten behind in my blog reading – but not in praying for you!
