Neck surgery on 4 Dec. has accomplished a three level fusion (C4-C7) that has be trapped at home in a rigid neck brace until January something. Post op swelling is going down, pain is subsiding and chronic pain/tingling in arms and hands has gone away. Neck, throat and shoulders are still rotten so I'm staying doped, sleeping 12-hrs a day and not smoking. Doc said a bowl/day is OK (cig smoking is definitely NOT ok) and, doncha know, the pills have killed my taste. I tried a bowl of Chocolate Flake yesterday and it was deader than a doornail.

Time marches on. Teeth gritted.

Thanks for kind wishes. Off the dope, my taste came back and - woo hoo - doc said a pipe a day was no problem... three more weeks in a hard collar.

Sam's Flake in Brakner Axe. Merry Christmas you rascals.
