I can really feel for Brad. I had the same surgery on my upperback in 1998. It was the most painful thing I have ever went through. I certainly hope he has success. I consider mine to be successful, because I had lost all feeling and most control of my left side. The surgeon said that my only other option than the surgery was total paralysis. Not a very good option.
My heartfelt sympathy.

Thanks for the good wishes, Brad is actually home now...insisted on
it...even though he will be out of commission for a couple of months. The
surgery wasn't due to any accident (if you can believe it) it was due to
calcification pressing on the nerves of four vertabrae. It was the old
fashion chop and scrape surgery, no laser stuff here, with the boney back
part of his vertebrae removed forever...so no slapping (or kicking) Brad on
the back from here on out...."k"?
Otto is licking his chops in case Brad doesn't make it (I can joke now)....
