Just to let everyone know: Yesterday was a long day but she came through the surgery great. They replaced the problem disk with an artificial one and didn’t have to fuse vertebra which is a good thing.
The doc says that she should be feeling much better within a week but can’t go back to work for at least two and can’t lift anything over five pounds for a month. She came home today and is doing fine but is having some pain (of course).
Thanks to everyone again for your thoughts and prayers, God answered them and she is doing fine.
