    Surgery tomorrow

    Hi everyone,

    I know I haven't been on here too long but I feel so much support from this group.

    Tomorrow is my surgery (T5-sacrum w/ pelvic fixation). My mom and boyfriend are with me...we are currently on the Megabus heading to NYC from Pittsburgh!

    I am no stranger to back surgeries, but this one has me freaked out. I hope the surgeons (Dr Angevine and Dr Vitale) can give me some pain relief.

    Please send us all some good vibes and prayers...especially to my family who has been through so much with me. I will try to post after!

    Lindsay

    Thanks everyone!

    No, no bus, LOL. Flying, first class I think because of the extra room. I hope I can plan for that soon - I think I will be pretty anxious to get home!

    Thanks,

    Lindsay
