As some of you might remember, about 1-1/2 years ago my husband had major spine surgery. After receiving amazing support from Facebook and other friends, I wrote a bit about his surgery and recovery in a post, "Adjusting one's sails, in business and in life."
He has recovered well, and while adjustments have been made, they are quite acceptable ones to us -- a long hike might be 8-10 miles now, pain medication is still needed, but it's over-the-counter ibuprofen and it's effective. In short, he is once again enjoying life; working, playing, exploring, and planning for the future.
I'm truly thankful for the medical and surgical advances that have been made, and extremely grateful to his surgeon, Dr. Dmitriy Kondrashov.
