I’ll be back (get it?)

Hey folks, tomorrow I’ll be having back surgery to have a disk removed (see “ouch” on the MRI below). The surgeon will cut out the disk and fuse the surrounding vertebrae. There is an article on the procedure here if you are interested. While stuck in bed, I expect to sleep, write a few blog posts, read a few books, and keep pushing on my research as best I can.

Last night, my roommates Don and Aaron prepared a fancy steak dinner in my honor (where, as Don said, fancy is defined as “not 5 lbs of pasta”). It was a thoughtful gesture and deserves public acknowledgment. Thanks roomies!
