That's good news, Rita. I think you two took the only option that promised a 
reasonable remedy and I'm glad it's over too. Give Bunky our best.

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  over?
