So in five days I will undergo a third spinal fusion surgery.
I could cuss, I could rant, I could snivel and whine like a spoiled brat bitch, bastard, but I will not.
Change is extremely tough for me and this surgery is about ME making changes. I have already started implementing lifestyle changes so that when I am in recovery mode I give myself the best chance possible to get the most out of this surgery. This is the main reason why I have been scarce of late and I will be really AWOL after Monday for maybe 6-12 weeks. I owe to myself, my wife, my family to be REALLY good after this fusion fix. I have started trying to get more sleep and I KNOW I have one shot here as I do not want anymore spinal surgery. These are a most nasty bit of surgery and having been through this twice before, I have to good. I was not after my first two spinal fusions and let's just leave it at that. No, I will not be going soft, or to the left (I would rather be dead than red and take as many of them as I can with me), it is about giving my spine a chance to heal and fuse. I am under no illusions of great pain relief or being pain free, that is just is not in the cards. What I do expect is some pain relief and regaining stability (no, not mental stability as the jury has already rendered it's verdict). Do not worry, I AM NOT going vegan or vegetarian, hack, spit and give me my bacon cheeseburgers please and my 44 Oz. big gulps of real Coca Cola. I have given EVERYONE permission to nag me, badger me, beat me if necessary to keep me in line. Just how it needs to be and I will gradually return, probably more grumpy than before. After all, I OWN PERMAGRUMP.
Speaking of changes, who better at changes than David Bowie. No, I am not going that way, whatever that way is. I have always liked David Bowie, especially from the 1970's.
This is just an FYI and I really hate what is upcoming but it is rapidly becoming reality. Come Monday morning around 7:30 A M, I will willingly, not gladly give over my trust to my surgeon. I will be giving up all control to my beloved wife, family and friends. I am in the best hands possible, the Lord's hands will be guiding my surgeon's hands and bless my wife as she will have her hands full. I could not be in better care. Now I just HAVE TO DO MY PART and that is the toughest part of all.
Updates will be posted when they can by me. I am NOT going anywhere and that is a for sure thing. Besides, with all this titanium in me spine holding it together, I could be worth a fortune.
Will try to do a few posts before Monday and thanks to all for your prayers and support. PatriotUSA
