Monday Morning Surgery

I have had surgeries before, those that required anesthesia and a short recovery period, but Monday’s surgery is much different because a hospital stay of about 4 days is required.  Also, my recovery period will be longer and probably more painful than the others.  It’s back surgery in the spinal area.  It’s like a having a pinched nerve in the spinal column that needs to be decompressed.   What does this mean ?  It means intensive care for 2 days, followed by hospital stay for at least 2 more days.  I have the utmost confidence in the surgeon and hospital that the procedure will go as planned.

So here’s the thing.  I will be incommunicado for my stay in the hospital.  No iphone, ipad, tablet, nothing to connect with you, read your posts, comment, post my own articles, etc.  A nightmare to say the least.  But, hoping WordPress will cooperate,  I will post some things that will appear daily,  conversation starters that will prompt for some serious thinking, and something about remembering the 9/11 terrorist attack on America.

If all goes well, I’ll return on the weekend to catch up on what I’ve missed.  So, have a wonderful week .   And keep writing !
