Based on your past experiance, what were your actual launch dates versus your wishful launch dates? I know we are at the mercy of the weather and service contractors. I was shooting for April 1st but I don't want to get my Hope's up!

I'm having a spinal procedure at the end of April so I'm hoping to launch by the end of May, if someone else does all the prep, a costly expenditure. I won't be able to bend or twist for two weeks or so and won't be able to do any work on the boat for two months. Even when using the boat, I'll have to be very careful. I'm having wires put in my spine attached to a 'spinal stimulator' (similar to a pacemaker) to block the pain. Hy

Hy, good luck with the procedure, sounds like some sort of permanent TENS/Stim unit?

Exactly. The trial unit worked, relieving much of the sensation of pain from my bad back. I have to wait for the end of April for the insert because I'll be out of the country before that and they don't want to do the procedure if I'm not in NY for the month afterwards. Bummer. Weather has finally started to improve so I can do some of the small things I have on my 'to do' list. Can't do any of the bigger stuff, like pulling the hot water heater/tank and repairing or replacing it. I guess no hot water again this season! Hy

I had cervical disc work, which worked out very well, but have another disc poking a nerve sometimes- Neurosurgeon say my range of motion would suffer if he added more sheet metal- also have some lower lumbar issues. I use a Tens unit every so often and I get short-term relief from it. Also go into the hot tub a couple of time a day as long as its above 20 degrees just need to add a hot tub to the boat or marina!- Again good luck!

Hy, hope you can recuperate fairly quickly after your procedure. A few years back I was laid up from June till September just waiting to get slotted in for a Knee replacement then 12 weeks after that recuperating. Good luck!

Thanks all for you good wishes. This is an out-patient, quick surgery, and I tend to heal quickly. I've had knee replacements, cervical fusion, and about a dozen other surgeries, major and minor. This one should be relatively easy, except for the forced inactivity for a few weeks. It's surprising how many things we do each day which require bending, twisting, or lifting our arms above our heads. All those activities will have to be put on hold till the wires 'scar-tissue' in place. I guess hauling the anchor would be out also (just kidding). Hy
