I just spoke to Judy... she sounds great!!! Based on her prior surgeries... she's way ahead of the curve. She says that some of her symptoms are already improved, but some are not. It's not uncommon to have symptoms flared up worse, or even to have new symptoms after such a surgery. There is a lot of irritation of the nerves that takes place during the surgery and inflammation caused by the surgery that may make things much worse in the hours, days, weeks following such a surgery.

I was so pleased to hear that she's doing so well. She should be in the hospital for several days and is up to having visitors. If you'd like to go for a visit, contact me for hospital info.

I would like to go see her in the next couple of days... If you'd like to ride with me or meet me there, let me know.

Please send out good vibes for her recovery!!!! It's all great news so far.
