It was a discectomy (removing a piece of disc) and laminectomy (removing some of the lamina around the disc) and they also removed some electrodes that were in his back for pain control but no longer work. (He will have another short procedure on Thursday to remove the pacemaker which operated the electrodes.)
We were loaned this walker which was a HUGE help.
All decked out in his hospital pyjama's!
On the way to theatre.
Thank you to all those - near and far who have been helping, praying and supporting us during this time.
