Hi all - yup, it's true....I'm home (just got home about 30 minutes or so ago) I can't stay up much longer for right now, but wanted to let you all know that surgery went well, and I'm doing well enough that doc. sent me home a day early. Also, I was SOOO blessed by all your kind words and support - it helped me immensely to think of all the people rooting and praying for me while I was in the hospital. Surgery took about 3 hours, doc said there was almost nothing left of both L4-5 and L5-S1, and he was able to get good space back between them now, with BAK cages. My pain now is much lower than before surgery, so far. Hopefully it will stay this way. (Of course, they gave me some pretty good drugs too :):):) I will post again later - right now, it's to bed with me. Thanks again for your support.
God bless your days
