I'm Back, Almost

Category: Mangoman's Blog | Posted: Thu Apr 25, 2013 5:43 pm

Hi All: My back surgery went extremely well although I ended up with a titanium apparatus that keeps my lower three vertabrae from closing up. It's only been two weeks since my surgery and I have some pain and stiffness, a little soreness in spots but overall, I feel good. I can't do any lifting or bending so a lot of things are off limits. My lovely wife cut 13 asparagus spears yesterday and there are many to come from the looks of the spears popping up. I planted carrots, swiss chard, kale, and miniature bok choy before my surgery and they are all doing well. I don't know what the hell the damned groundhog thought when he predicted an early spring. It hasn't appeared here at all. It's been more like late February, early March. Highs are only in 50's and 60's. I guess summer will just show up and then it will be hot. Peace

I'm really pleased your surgery went so well and that you're, almost, pain free. Just take things easy and don't be tempted to do too much too soon.

Good to hear the surgery went well. Hey, good thing Spring is hanging on a while longer you are in no shape to be doing summer gardening yet anyway. So just sit, heal and before you know it you and Summer will be on the same page.

Glad to hear you are on the mend. Fortunately the weather isn't tempting you out into the garden. Take care.
