He's fixed

Despite chiropractors and orthopedic specialists, Vinnie's back just got worser and worser. With increasing pain, weakness, and numbness of his leg, we were very motivated to find the big fix. On 8/9/06, Dr. D. Spitzer, a neurosurgeon, took these problems away by removing an enormous (humongous - in medical jargon) herniated disc. We could not be happier and are very grateful for his excellent care.

I'm so glad everything went well Dad, it was difficult to see you in that much pain (dad's aren't supposed to get hurt)

dad's can get hurt! THey just can't show that they're hurt. Duh,everyone knows that! I'm glad you survived the operation dad; it didn't sound like the most fun thing to do on a Wednesday. I miss you both and cannot wait to see you!
