    Final pre-op today & matress topper here..

    Tammy had her final pre-op today, we are a go for March 8th. The final decision is in and they will be fusing T-1 thru T-11 and placing rods. They are not addressing her split-cord malformation (non symptomatic) and additionally do PLAN to release her tethered cord, I say plan because on rare occasions the tethered cord can interfere with the neuro monitoring. They will have an actual neurologist monitoring her functions and not a tech. 10 days away.....

    On another note our Serta 4" memory foam came today....it is so tightly packed that it took all my strength to unroll it for expansion (I am 6'2 250 and am very physical) I mean it just about won the battle!!! So if you get one make sure you have someone on stand-by to help!!!!

    That is it for now...

    As always you guys have been AWESOME!!!!!

    Hows the Serta mattress topper treating you? I just ordered the same thing today. A 4" serta from Overstock. It comes with 2 memory foam pillows too. We just got our new bed about a year ago, but I cant wait to add the foam to it!
