Hey Gordon:

The surgeon that cut me was pretty good.  I was taking comp time to nurse the back and the situation had turned pretty ugly.  The ortho doc wanted to treat it with pain killers and stretching but I couldn't even stand and could barely lie still for a minute at a time. Finally the ortho doc got tired of my whining and referred me to a neuro doc after about 3 weeks.  The neuro doc gave me an MRI the morning of the referral, read me the results before lunch and told me that he was cutting me after lunch and that I would be up and around without back pain by dinner.  He missed by two hours and I missed dinner. Nonetheless, after the surgery, I stayed home about ten days and then was assigned to desk duty.  Funny thing is that they couldn't keep me on the desk for long.  I was making as many arrests working the desk as I did on the street.  Seems that everyone who came through the front door was wanted.  So the L T put me back on the street about a month after returning to work. 8) 8)

Took some time getting used to wearing a vest again and the old Sam Brown rubbed on the scar making life miserable.  The first night out, we had a guy go bad after a routine traffic stop and he fled on foot.  I ended up jumping a fence right in front of my Sgt.  Afterwards, he took me aside and threatened to tell my wife if I didn't slow down. ???  So I did.
