    Post-surgery recovery going well

    As some of you know, I had back surgery at the end of August to repair a herniated disc in my lower back. I'm nearly three weeks into recovery, and at the two week visit, the doctor was very pleased with my progress.

    I've been off the pain meds since then, and aside from a hard time getting to sleep and staying asleep, am doing great.

    I went with my wife and our two year old to Sam's today, and carried for the first time in a month (I went down for the count mid-August). Now that felt great!

    I'll be back at the doctor's in about three weeks, and if all is looking good still I should be able to return to work around mid-October. Two months without working at all is a challenge, both mentally and financially. I've read every gun magazine I had on hand (about three dozen), plus a bunch of other magazines and part of a book my mom gave me. I think I'll definitely be ready to get back into the swing of things at work when the time comes. Meanwhile, we're surviving on savings.

    Sounds like good progress - that surgery is pretty intense stuff.

    You will no doubt have a list of no-no's to follow - heed those things. of course if you are carrying it's knees bend anyways

    Look after it and hope all will pan out well and you can resume work.

    I'm glad you are off your back and on your feet
