So good to hear that Bunky is doing well.  Sounds like the surgery was
exactly the right thing and he is on the mend.  Keep us posted.
Thanks, Jay

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 Circle.


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

        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.
