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.

THE FIRST CUT IS THE DEEPEST

The surgery is DONE!!! A simple 45 minute procedure (yeah, right!) took a little over two hours. NS found a "pocket" of infection that was missed last time. In his words, it was a "radical" surgery, going all the way back to the original site of the discectomy, and removing some fatty tissue as well.

H2 will be in more pain this time (NS's observation, due to the radicallness of the surgery). Let's hope they keep his demerol level up! He should be in the hospital for 4 or 5 days, then he'll be sent home on a six-week IV regimen. Hmmm. Six weeks. That's longer than any time L has been home since Katrina.

H2 had to cancel his much anticipated interview with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement, part of the Homeland Security Department) which was supposed to be tomorrow. Please pray that this doesn't throw a wrench into his career plans and aspirations!

Looking forward to the return of H1/DIL1 this weekend. Perhaps DIL1's xB will be sporting the pimped out mods that
H1 has been struggling with
.

Until next time, may the peace of the Lord be with you, and may His Glory shine upon you!

Actually, I think Mom MAY stay next week, but then it's my turn, she has to go back to Memphis.
