I spent 3 days in the hospital after having a second laminectomy (first one was in 1992 over L4 & L5) and a lumbar fusion for L3 & L4. Fortunately I immediately had relief from the sciatic nerve pain down the back of both of my legs. I still have numbness in both my feet but the Dr. hopes that the numbness will subside or even disappear entirely over time. The major pain I have now is all related to the surgery site where the 4 bone transplants were made. The Dr. said that pain may last a couple of months.

The past week has been kind of a haze as I have been taking some pain medications but I am slowly being able to lower the doses and am beginning to feel like working again and I have a lot of projects stacked up from while I was out of service.

Now after having said all that I will say that I feel a 1,000% better than I did prior to going into surgery. So for me it was a great success. My surgeon Dr. Verska of the Idaho Spinal Institute was the same surgeon who performed a micro discectomy on me back in 1996. That surgery went so well so I was insistent in getting him for this one. It appears my faith in him was not misplaced.

I'm glad I toughed out the journey from Phoenix back to here in Boise despite the pain and the lousy weather. Having family around made this whole process much easier. My son was able to keep an eye on my 3 cats so that I didn't have to worry about them.

My interim plans are to probably spend the next year here in the Boise area and resume my travels next summer. The only exception to this is I may want go back over to La Grande for a couple of months in July and August. My recovery will of course have a lot to say about that plan. I really enjoyed my last summer there and am tempted to do it again. We will see.

I am only going to mention this briefly for now. As I have more time to think this through I will bring it up more later. This injury, away from family, where I was essentially alone was a bit of an eye opener. I realize that I am getting older and more and more things will begin to happen over time. The thought of being somewhere a thousand miles away from friends and family and to have to deal with it alone is a little scary.

So I am beginning to think maybe it is time to drop anchor for a while and settle down for a while. I usually don't speak of this but I have been divorced now for over 20 years and have not met anyone that I would like to spend the rest of my life with. I'm sure that someone is out there somewhere but the odds of me finding her are greatly decreased with all my travels.

To use a Naval gunnery term (or military in general) it is extremely hard to hit a moving target. And it is even harder for a moving body to hit a stationary object. I guess what I am saying is that the odds of me meeting "that someone" would be greatly improved if I were to stop and stay in one place for a while.

For now that is just me thinking things over and as I have had time to think this over more I will come to some sort of decision. Whatever my decision is I will keep my RV. I will either start traveling again or I will just use it for some short vacations with most of my time being spent here in the Boise area.

Stay tuned to future posts if you are interested in what ever decision I come up with.
