Wizard’s back surgery for the severely herniated disk went really well yesterday. It was an extremely long day, and I’m exhausted writing this, but everything went smoothly. Wizard stunned the surgeon by telling him that Wizard had mowed the yard two days beforehand. That’s the absolute truth, he did mow the yard. After the surgery, the doctor was describing how badly inflamed Wizard’s nerve on one side was and commented again he couldn’t believe how Wizard managed to stay somewhat active despite his pain level. But the good news is that the surgery went well, and now we wait and see how the nerve does over the next few weeks. Thank you everyone for your good thoughts and prayers, they are very much appreciated.
Now onto Wednesday Worthy. This is a candidate for those who appreciate a guy with some body art:
So what do you think? Is he worthy?

Go, Wizard! That story reminds me of my 6-week check up after I had the Kid. The doc asked how I was feeling and I told him ‘pretty good except for this muscle that pulls a little when I mow the lawn’. I guess women don’t usually mow after they give birth. :shrug:
Fingers crossed that the recovery goes well for Wizard and that it’s a short one.
Yeah, this guy? Meh. But you probably expected that from me. ;o)

Yay for Wiz! And if that doctor knew him at all… Here’s to a speedy recovery and no pain!
I like this guy and I especially like him in this photo. I’m obviously hanging out on the wrong photo sites because I haven’t seen this one. I need a peek into your files, Jen.

B.e., LOL on mowing the lawn while recovering from childbirth. I’m sure the doctor was shocked!
I was pretty sure this guy wasn’t going to work for you

Silver, so true, if the doctor knew Wizard, he’d understand, LOL! But he’s being very good right now (pain meds help!)
I hadn’t seen this guy before either. He’s at Depositphoto, I think.

Wow! Wizard sure has a high tolerance for pain. So happy the surgery went well. I wish him a very speedy recovery. I love how you’re a hovering wife ;). But do try to rest.
I think he’s very worthy and thoughtful too :).

Viki, he really does, and a will to stay as active as possible which will help his recovery now.
Good point on the “thoughtful” candidate.

Oh, I have lots of pics of this guy. I just don’t remember *THIS* picture of him. LOL No time to look for awhile but this one is on my radar now!
*sends gentle virtual hug to Wiz* Y’all hang in there! And happy writing!
