My back feels great ......and sleeping is just rad. I really don't like getting up and putting the brace back on, but how rad that I can get up at all. I have to say that I feel very lucky how great this whole process has been. My wife has been incredible and my friends are been so supportive. I can't believe how fortunate I am that this injury will end on such a good note.
105 shots of espresso will fuel my return over the next 35 days. Look for me at the gym, walking my dogs, or maybe at the first Time Trial just 6 days after I take off my TLSO brace.
