Be Back Soon!

June 2nd, 2011

My little Tula being adorable and keeping me company!

I wanted to pop in again and apologize for my erratic and unpredictable posting lately. My back issues have not improved much and and after weeks of physical therapy and countless doctor appointments I was able to meet with a specialist. Unfortunately, my herniated disk is quite sever and a portion even managed to detach itself and could potentially cause even more nerve damage.

With the recommendation from my physical therapist, specialist and surgeons I am having surgery to alleviate the pain and remove the herniation. I go in for surgery this morning and am actually looking forward to waking up and feeling pain free! It’s been over six months since this all began so I am thrilled to be on the mend soon.

From what I understand, the surgery is quite common and the recovery is pretty quick. I’m not sure what to expect in the next week or so but wanted to give you all a heads up if I disappear for a few days. I hope to be back here soon and looking forward to being on a more normal schedule.

Thanks again to all of you for your support and understanding. My best to you all and see you soon! xoxo

    I enjoy your blog and hope you are up and about again soon. I had the same herniated disk problem about 6 years ago and had a surgery called TLIF (trans-lumbar intra-something fusion). It was amazing – i could stand up and walk again! I recommend yoga for keeping everything limber and aligned.
