Well, folks, I have finally seen the the light of day. I had my first surgery on Monday, May 17 and the second on Thusday, May 20, I was in intensive care the three nights following the second surgery but seem to be on the mend now. I was released to come home yestereday and man has that been nice. I could'nt have have better care, but it is so good to be home. My family documented my progress at carepages.com if any of you would like to follow my progress. http://www.carepages.com/visit (visit Glenda Guess). I would enjoy sharing it with you. I have just today been able to read all the posts. So good to be catching up with all of youl

For any who may be looking for a surgeon in the Atlanta area, I have certainly been pleased with Dr Tim Yoon and the Emory Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital.

Hi Glenda and welcome back! You've certainly done well, considering you've had two major surgeries so close together. I tried to look at your carepage but couldn't find you by name, I suppose I need to become a member?

Anyway, it's good to know another one's safely over the hurdle! Take good care and I hope the remainder of your recovery goes smoothly.

Glenda--So happy to hear the news that you are back home and doing well. I couldn't get to your Care Page either. Best of luck and continued steady recovery. Janet

Congrats to you!!!! I remember how wonderful it was to get home finally. I felt like I had finally crossed the first hurdle once I got home. Laying in my own bed felt so good.
Again, welcome home to you!! You are going to be just fine now!!!

Hi Glenda-

Thanks for posting so we can see how well you are doing. I was so happy when I saw the initial post from your son when you got out of surgery! My surgery is 7 days away so I love to hear good news and I'm so glad you are doing well!

Keep us posted!


06-03-2010, 10:01 PM
Glenda, Congrats from me as well!!! Your surgery time line was very similar to mine in May '05. There was no way I could have got on here as soon as you.

Way to go,

'what you don't see are that most of the posts are not from me. My sweet daughter-in-law and son are doing most of the postingl I can hardly put a sentence together yet. However, I will say, I am so glad it's over and I'm very gad I did it. I'm two weeks post surgery today! I'll be happy to answer specific questions should you have any you's like to ask.
