Smile Having back surgery this friday

Hi! I am just gonna type cause my anxiety is getting the best of me! I fell down 11 stairs about a year ago and broke a vertebra in my back. I have been going through alot in the last year between cortisone shots to physical therapy and nothing has worked. I am going to Johns Hopkins on friday to have this piece removed and am very nervous!! This is my first real surgical procedure. Any keep busy suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I have a few books lined up and am looking forward to some "quiet time" but not this way LOL! I will tell you that MYbargainbuddy saved me at christmas time! I did 98% of my shopping through you!! Thanks!!!
Take care and wish me luck!!
Jenn

Wow, Jenn! 11 stairs is quite a fall! That must have been scary! Pretty normal to be nervous about surgery. Try to focus on how much better you'll be feeling after you're all healed up. I usually clean house when I'm stressed out. Clean a closet, dump out junk drawers... You'll keep busy and have something good to show for it.

Good luck with your surgery. Think positively--at least there is a procedure they can do to help you.. We'll be thinking of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. When I am a wreck I do crossword puzzles and/or Sudoku.

Hang in there and try not to stress. I have had 4 back surgeries with the last one being a fusion. The little bit of discomfort (not really pain) you will have after is nothing compaired to what you have been through ( I know, been there myself!) Just do EXACTLY as the doctor tells you and you'll be up and going in no time. This will be a good time to catch up on any reading, needlepoint, crochet etc... that you like to do but usually don't have time for. Also if you have a hubby or kids that will wait on you, milk it for all it's worth! LOL! (((((HUGS))))) and prayers!
