Back surgery today, returning in week or so

I haven’t posted any pictures or notes from MileHiCon, because I’ve been busy preparing for back surgery and today’s the day. I’ll be recovering for a few days, few weeks, actually, it’ll take 9 – 12 months for my body to complete the fusion process. Hope to be on the computer again in a week or so.

For anyone who’s interested in the nuts and bolts (going into my back) of the surgery, there’s a good animation at Unfortunately, there’s no direct URL, so you have to click on “Spine Procedures,” then “Lumbar — Laminectomy, Fusion — Instrumented,” to see the procedure I’m undergoing.

Any opinions?
