On Successful Surgery…

As of this moment, I am writing a changed man… missing a little bit of bone and cartilage… and sporting a nice new slash across my lower back.

This is a good thing.

The surgery to fix the herniated L5-S1 disc was so successful that the doctors didn’t even feel the need to keep me overnight for observation.  I can already feel an immense difference (the pain in my leg is nigh entirely gone), but at the moment, I’ve just traded one pain for another (shocking development folks, having surgery leaves you really sore).

But the difference is, finally, the pain is only going to get better, as opposed to worse.  Sleeping will start being easier, rather than harder.  It’s not going to be a short road to a full recovery, but I can finally say I’m on that road to recovery.

It’s a good feeling.

In actual writing news, I’ve been able to push through the first manuscript of The Tower of Kartage, and the goal remains to have that ready for sale at the end of the month.  And barring a horrible turn for the worse, I should be well enough to attend Youmacon 2014 in Detroit.

Keep your fingers crossed on both counts.  I’m eager to get back in the swing of things.
