My parents and I have been back for a couple of days now, and my mother is staying with me, at least for two weeks (possibly more).

For the most part, I am doing great. My incision pain is all but gone now, and my back pain is just distraction pain as well.

As I am finding out (and already knew), the toughest part is trying to take it easy for a couple of months, and really listen to my body for cues when I may be over-doing it.

As per instructions, I will continue my normal medication schedule for 3 months, and then begin a gentle ramp-down of everything.
