Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

Stab Me In The Back, Why Don't You???

H2 went through surgery for a herniated disc. The procedure was supposed to take 45 minutes to shave off a piece of the disc that was pressing against nerves. It actually took two hours. The surgeon said there was a little more damage than originally thought, so he removed the entire disc between the L4 and L5 vertebrae. H2 is doing fine. As the anethesia wears off he continues to improve. He should be released tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who offered prayers for him.

I had that same surgery in 2000 so I can really feel for H2. They don't let you sit around for long.
Heal quickly, Dean!!

I had the same surgery in 1998 (Must be a family thing). I was up and walking the next morning, and the pain I had experienced previously was 100% gone! I hope DJ does as well!

"Happy thoughts" continue to be sent H2's way. Hope he's better soon.
