So with disc in hand we set out for Columbus a tad early so we could eat and shop a little. We ate a good lunch at Cheddars.
|Cheddars, but not our car...|
We left there and enjoyed browsing among the many books at Barnes and Nobles!! We found a very nice book on sale showing all our National Parks published by National Geographic. Beautiful pictures and very informative! We couldn’t pass this up for $9.98!! We know we can find all this information on line but every now and then it’s nice to hold the book and flip the pages!

The doctor examined Mike’s neck and took a look at the x-rays. He even showed them to us and we could distinctly see the titanium plate (cage) surrounding the two disc he created and the 6 screws holding everything in place! We could see the new disc and he pointed out the area in the middle where the bone had been placed and fused!! According to the doctor it looked exactly as it should!! Everything was fine for taking that neck brace off!! Yay...we have lift off!! Mike was told he could do most everything he wants except no more contact sports....oh darn!!! There goes his football and wrestling careers!! So after 6 long weeks the brace is off!!
|Brace off after six weeks, got it in my left hand|
|I handed Mike the keys to the truck...after 6 weeks of him not driving|
I hope they haven’t forgotten how!!!!
|I don't think he forgot how to drive|
|I also gave him to leash to walking Asher|
|Now Mike can walk Asher, while I will walk Nick|
|This guy landed just below our patio for almost 10 minutes|
|Notice the talons on this hawk|
