Got home last night and looks like everything went well. With good recovery I'll be up on 2 wheels by September at least. Had to spend an extra day in the hospital due to a skipped beat in the heart while under and my throat felt like it could swell to closing the next morning but steroid to the swelling down and am doing pretty good. Doctor said he thought I'd heal quickly, said bone was hard but had a bunch of spurs that are gone now so that will help get some feeling and balance back. Just glad that is behind me now, hate surgery and hospitals.

Glad to hear your surgery went well. Thaks for the update. Heal up and then ride.

What kind of brace did they put you in (assuming you're in a brace)?

I got lucky and they have me in a soft brace. I thought I'd have to have the hard "horsecollor" brace but doc said because the section that was done for me was not the top 3 cervical vertibra and the bones seemed really hard he felt the soft was good. Hoping for late summer release to ride again. Right now it is still sort of painful and ackward to sleep or even set up very long but I'm thinking in a couple of weeks that things will improve. Thanks for the well wishes!

Sounds good. I had pictured you in one of those erector set like structures with the rods and screws.
