Tapati surgery update --  
Hi all -- This is Dave, Tapati's husband. She has asked me to give you an update regarding her surgery. Her surgery was Monday the 24th. She had two discs removed, a fusion, and removal of bone (OPLL -- bone was actually pressing on nerves). Her surgery went well, and she is in the hospital recovering.

Her arm pain is gone! Her neck is hurting, as expected. She can talk, but her voice is hoarse. They started giving her food (i.e. broths, juice, etc) yesterday. She did get up and move around a bit. No word yet on when she can come home, but I'm guessing probably tomorrow (Thursday 1/27).

I will update later today (I go and see her after work), hopefully I can tell you all when she is coming home. Thanks, Dave

FYI-I took the liberty of reposting this onto No Longer Quivering, so they know how she's doing.
