View Full Version : I Survived!!

07-14-2006, 04:01 PM
I am just logging on to the internet for the first time since surgery. I have so much to share and don't know where to begin, so I'll save that for later. I just wanted to thank everyone for their support. You don't know how much it helped prepare me for what was to come. My surgery on May 22 was a complete success. I am recovering at home still and will be until the end of August. I feel better every day. I will share my story on my blog (tomorrow) and am looking forward to contributing to this board again.

I'm so glad to hear about another successful surgery. Congratulations on your recovery process. I would like to hear more about your experience as I am preparing for a spinal fusion. Is you blog accessible to the public?

Good for you Brandi! I felt so happy too that I survived surgery and the months to come made me realize it was something I should've done years ago. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

That's great Brandi, many here wondered how you were doing(myself more than once as well), and I had a feeling that you were taking it easy and taking care of yourself and family, it is a big procedure. My hat's off to all of you who have surgery and have kids as well :cool:

I knew you would be back to tell us about your experience, as you said in your last post :)

Will enjoy reading about your recovery and what life brings you in your blog, take it easy ;)
