Well, thank you all for welcoming Linda and me. I am just having some breakfast and turned on the computer to check messages and 'Dan, Kelly and Maddy' were the last to welcome us. Being clear over here in California, we are about the last ones to hear comments
You are all very kind and understanding...and I appreciate your well wishes concerning my back and recovery. I just had my 2nd acupuncture treatment yesterday and it may be helping. It's a little too soon to tell yet though.
I almost feel guilty about calling someone a "Filthy Beast", but I wish you nothing but continued good health with your fusion also. Whether it's 6 hours or 15 hours, that's a lot of trauma and pain. Best wishes to you.
Even though I haven't addressed each one of you personally, please know that I read and appreciated all your comments!
P.S. Posting images on this forum is probably the same as other forums I belong to, so I'll try to give you some more photos of our little Tear. Thanks for asking.
