Ta-da, I'm back.

I'm the proud owner of 6 steri-strips that trapse up the right side of my neck.

I'm tired, stiff and sore, which is par for the course. The surgery went well.

Today's milestone: I was able to roll over, by myself, to my left side. Ta-da! After my last surgery this feat took several days to master. My next trick will be sleeping on *one* pillow. I wanted to only sleep on one pillow for my nap today, but it wasn't comfortable...I'm still going to need two pillows for a while.

Baby steps, my friends. Baby steps.

I am glad you are doing so well. It takes a lot of inner strenght to face what you've been going through with such a wonderful attitude and bright outlook. I truly think that attitude goes a long way to how we feel. I hope, if I ever have to go through this, I can face it with half as much courage as you've seemed to show.

I am so excited about how fast you are recovering! Look at you posting and moving and using humor. Way better than last time! Is your fam still in town?
