Good News! — Six Word Saturday —
I'm glad that my back surgery is over. I came home yesterday after spending a night in the St. Luke's Woodlands (a Houston suburb) Hospital. My terrible pain is gone but there is still a pretty bad lingering backache.
The surgery went well. It was the repair of a thoracic vertebrae which had a fresh partial compression fracture. I was required to stay awake so no general anesthesia, only locals. This was so that every now and then I could wiggle my feet on command. I have a small band aid now covering my incision.

Oh yes, the last time I posted a Six Word Saturday I had the Pumpkin Kids contest. The Country Pumpkin Growers group won by a landslide. Still now though I have not written a Pumpkin, Texas post featuring the winner. I'll let you know on 6WS when it does happen.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
May you and yours have a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. :)
