It's done. I scheduled it. May 1st is the day. Now I get to deal with my nerves for the next 46 days. And damnit, if I'm not just a little bit excited... It'll be nice to someday be mostly free of back pain and to stand straight and tall, which I have never been able to do. It seems scary now, but I hope it's worth it in the end.
