Hi all, thanks for the kind words and concern. My sons surgery went well. He came home the same day. He is still very sore from the procedure. We will not know if it "worked" or not for a few weeks at least. I guess when they burn the disc out, it takes time for it to harden and shrivel up, then that hopefully takes the pressure off the nerve causing all the pain. We are taking it one step at a time, and so far so good. He is still in a lot of pain. My heart breaks for him because for the past two years he has not been able to have fun and enjoy himself like a 21-23 yr old should. Thanks again. Tonakay, thanks for thinking of me and West Rushville. We are coming down to see Mom on her birthday the week of July 17th. I want to visit that campground and Mt Pleasant. Been a long time. Thanks again to you all.
