Operation: Lose a Turn
After all the months of waiting and worrying and looking forward to as well as dreading the day of my surgery ... it was postponed. I know things like this happen and can't be avoided, but I sure was frustrated and disappointed.
The reason was that there was one small part that went with the apparatus (small rods, screws, etc.) that would be used if he has to do a fusion on more than one level. We are hoping that this is not the case, but he said he couldn't go ahead with the surgery, that we'd waited too long for everything not to be perfect.
I'm not doing the countdown again, I think it may have jinxed me, as I neglected to post a "one to go" photo yesterday.
