Hello from Thornton, CO!

We had a safe trip out here and dad had surgery this morning. It was much better news that we could have dreamed. He has a herniated, ruptured disc that broke (ruptured just means a cracked disc) and a piece was pushing on a nerve causing the pain to go down his leg and loss of feeling in his foot and toes. He is waking up now and the dr said he should have little to no pain when he wakes up. He will be really happy about that. He made history today here as he is the oldest patient (64) to have never had surgery in his life (at this place anyway) and did really well.
They have one computer here that no one is using, so I am cking up on messages and e-mailing people about dad.
Thank you all so much for your kind words and prayers. If all goes well today and tomorrow morning, we can go home tomorrow.

I see I am only 420 visits from 10,000. Very close to some blog candy Ü
