My husband Bruce had surgery this morning at Shadyside Hospital in the UPMC network here in Pittsburgh...everything went very well...we were told he would probably go to an inhouse rehab facility...after the surgery Dr. Bejjani told me he may just come home depending on how his stability is...he had stenosis and a bulging disc at L3....he could barely walk when the surgeon sent him right from the office to the emergency room last Thursday...he had tried therapy and had 2 epidural pain injections in the last few months, but it was getting progressively worse...they did an MRI and admitted him then...so this has been a long time coming...he had back surgery about 18 years ago and did well then...I appreciate all of your messages and prayers...please keep them coming...Carol
