Keith had back surgery

Were back from the hospital now, and Keith is in bed resting.

His surgery went well, the doctors were able to perform the planned surgery without complication. Keith has said that the major pain down his leg is gone, but occasionally he gets a shooting pain that resonated down there. This was to be expected. The doctors were concerned about an adjacent nerve that controls the strength in your foot, it appears that everything is fine there.

Now Keith is sore at the incision site which will take about a month to go away. He is limited to light duty for the next 3 months however.

It has been a long few days and I am glad that we are home now.
