only freaking out a little

This is something that got temporarily lost last week when Blogger had its little breakdown...

It doesn't ever slow down, does it? Life, I mean.

Dan will be going in for a discectomy and laminectomy sometime this spring/summer. It would not be an overstatement to say that this is major surgery. He will be having two cervical discs removed, then they put in some sort of plastic cage and a metal plate. They make an incision on the front of the neck and pull aside the windpipe and arteries and that's about where I check out, thanks.

In a lighter moment with the doctor... we were told that before surgery they will insert a "pee-pee catheter."

Yeah. Concentrate on things like "pee-pee" catheter." The rest? Oh Lord.
As SB said- keep us posted.

You know you're in trouble when "pee-pee catheter" is the lighter moment. Best to you.
