10:05 left for surgery
2:20 Surgeon gave good report that fusion went well & pleased with instrumentation
5:15 Got into private hospital room
6:00 Kids bored & went home
8:30 Scott got out of bed to sit (for 10 min then back to bed)

11:00 Finishing this post and GOING TO BED
THANK YOU for your prayers & well wishes. KEEP 'EM COMING!!
The Doctor said his part is finished - now it's up to Scott to get the diabetes under control & get himself into a healthy lifestyle. Scott has limited mobility in his lower back now & it will be an adjustment for him (imagine wearing a brace that doesn't allow your lower back to bend - that's how his life will be now). We need to work on it... prayerfully this will be a GREAT new start for us! This is the good news we needed!
