A Walk in the Park

I know by now you all must be wondering how I was so much more capable of blogging after a bilateral mastectomy w/breast reconstruction/tissue expanders than after a simple little level 1 spinal fusion with instrumentation. Allow me to make some excuses:

I can't sit up and type.
I must roll like a "cigar" to get up for anything.
When I am not lying in bed straining my neck to read and type I must be walking...and walking...and walking.

But here's the thing...I AM walking - just a day or 2 after back surgery. Amazing.

And - I am going home tomorrow - where I can stand comfortably and type - when I'm not walking.

And as I walk, I think of all of my good fortune - I am so grateful for the love and support I've received for yet another invasive medical adventure (which is truly s much easier experience than the first, I kid you not.

I mean, really - who knew back surgery could be such a walk the park?
