Thanks, Eric.  About to head to bed now ... it's almost 3 AM on the  right 
coast, but I closed the gallery today and did a little cleaning before I  
left for the hospital, and just finished up some more cleaning plus four  
loads of wash ... it's the only time I've had to do anything since last  week.
Told Bunky he'd better get well soon so he can get back to doing his chores 
 around the house ... I don't do vacuuming. ;-)

Yep, the remedies were a hit.
Bunky was a bit better today, and I'm hoping they'll place him in a  rehab 
facility tomorrow, either at the hospital or at the Watermark on  Logan 
Spine damage was extensive.  After over an hour of prep time  in the OR, 
the surgery itself lasted three hours ... Doc said it  was severe nerve 
compression on both sides of his spine from L2 down to  S1.  Major problem was 
Bunky being unable to have heavy  duty narcotics after the surgery because of 
the brain damage from  Lipitor.  
We'd been told the procedure was risky beforehand, but when the  
neurosurgeon came up to talk to me after it was over, he said  that having seen 
Bunky's spine, if it had been himself, he would  have risked the operation also.
These days with back surgery they usually throw you out of the  hospital 
after two nights, but they've kept Bunky five so far ... don't know  how long 
rehab will be, but they won't release him until he can climb a  flight of 
stairs.  Having seen our home, you know why I've insisted  upon that. ;-)
Thanks for asking ... did I tell you how happy I am that it's finally  over?

Hi  all,

Just  wondering if the photog system is down again, or nobody's talking.   
Have received nothing since WOC's amazing home remedies post, some of  which 
I'll definitely use.

Bunky  had major back surgery on Wednesday, so I've not been checking in  
much.  Thought this morning would be a good time to catch up, but  there's 
not much here so thought I'd write.
