Yep this a great december. My wife and I are both having surgery this month. Hers was yesterday to remove the left half of her thyroid because of a lump. Every thing went well and she came home with me about 3 hrs after her surgery. I get to have a bone spur taken off my right shoulder in another week. This started over a year ago. I had the cortisone shot but that only help a couple of months. I made it thru the year to my slow time some I am getting it done now. We should be good to go by Christmas.
