The surgery went ok, the "Largest herniated disk I ever saw" said the doctor.
Whether the damage is permanent or not, it remains to be seen. His left foot is tingling a bit today though so he's getting hopeful. But the journey to walking seems like it will be a while yet. He was up with a walker today a bit too.
His boss has assured him of his job whenever he gets back up and around, so thats good.
But still lots of scary stuff ahead, and a bit of a long road back, if its even doable.Â
Which is why we are praying.
