I'm getting Surgery tomorrow.

I won't be active for a while again. As some of you know I'm disabled. Tomorrow I'm getting one of several needed surgeries. I've put it off for so many years and finally decided it was time. So they are removing 4 vertebrae in my neck and replacing them with titanium and plates and screws. Eventually my lower back will have the same done to it. They said they need to take my hip off or something though. That should be fun hehe.

I'll be in the hospital for a few days and then be in a full on neck brace for a month. I'm a diabetic so my healing time might be long. I'll check in when I can.

The ducky part is I'm already on heavy pain killers. So maybe I should drink too. Hehehe.

Love you guys. Even Eli.

Damn! I really hope everything goes smoothly and as painlessly as possible. You will be in my thoughts. If you are feeling well enough please keep us updated. Ditto on the crossed fingers, I'm going to worry about you.

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

Technology is amazing these days. I had a an L5S1 Spinal fusion in 2004 and it's still going strong. Titanium indeed. The miracle metal. Get well soon Billy.

Sounds like some rough times ahead my friend. I wish you all the luck with your recovery and future better living. If you get too down about it just remember what Robocop had to go through to get his metal parts.
