Surgery Over!

It has been a rough few days but I have survived the surgery, after waiting for 2and 1/2 hours, but I am finally back home. Boy was it good to come home to my own bed.

Thanks to all those who have been praying for me. I really appreciate your prayers. Especially my sister who stayed with me. She was sure a great help.

The surgery went good. Bulging disk gone, cadaver bone being held in place with a plate and screws, bone spurs gone, no more numb arms and hands, now comes the healing time.

I have been banned from housework for the next two weeks, no reaching high or low and have to wear this neck cuff for two weeks and these awful white stockings to prevent blood clots!! If I could go barefoot 24/7 I belive I would so wearing these socks is driving me crazy. But, believe it or not, they have told me to crochet all I want, that it would be good to strengthen my arm and shoulder muscles. Now that is a good thing.

Have a great weekend.


  1. Tammi it's great to know you're back home and that your surgery went well.
    Now take things easy and follow the doc's orders.
    Blessings to you, wishing you a very speedy recovery.

  2. Oh how lovely Tammi to know you're home and that the surgery went well, thanks and praise be to God!
    As to the white stockings, yep my DH and I know all about them, he had to wear them after his Bypass 18 months ago but it was imperative that he wore them and that he did. They are awful but they do their work and they do prevent strokes. As for crocheting, hurray no housework so plenty of time for fun! Enjoy your healing time, will keep you in my prayers for a speedy and full recovery.

  3. Thanks ladies. I am going to try and finish some coasters that I had started last week with plastic canvas. I just have to do a little at a time but hey, that is all I have for the next two weeks isn't it? Plenty of time. lol
