Friday Update

A couple of medical notes: It’s been six months since my back surgery, and I saw the surgeon yesterday. The new hardware in my back is perfectly in place, and I’m moving with only a little bit of residual pain. I’m still a little limited – I cannot walk very far without having to sit for a bit – but the surgeon and his assistant both said that was normal. They added that full recovery from spinal fusion generally takes about a year.

And they both said that I will nevertheless have back pain simply because I’m on the high side of sixty. The years do their work.

And then, there’s my annual summer sinus infection. I’m on meds, but I’m moving slowly. So I’m going to go sit and read for most of the rest of the day.

Here’s a Friday song: It’s “Friday Street” from Paul Weller’s 1997 album Heavy Soul. I’ll be back tomorrow.
