L3-4, L4-5 decompression with out fusion planning for November 3rd. Slugging down prednisone til then just so I can continue to get around and go to work. Will miss 2-3 weeks of work, then should be able to start rehabbing in gym, getting the core as strong as can be and getting ready for next spring. With any luck less back pain than I've had in 15 years and a chance to put together a good season of skiing.
