    Anything to help a brother out. Just do me one favor. Take Wonton off the list. Last time she booked a show, she tried to pay me with her credit card miles. :shock:

    Good luck! You didn't have the last one too long ago, did you? I remember talking about it on here. Your family did a fine job taking care of the tank last time -- it will be fine again, I'm sure. :)

    Thanks Sarah...Yeah, the low back was done May/2012, and now, they're redoing the cervical. Good thing is that the tank is self sufficient now and not much maintenance is needed.

    Looks like we have a lot in common. I grew up in Oak Lawn and now live in Alsip. I had SW fish and a reef tank from 1986 to 1997 and am just now getting back into the hobby with a 28 gal Nano. I too suffer from back troubles. I had to retire 2 years ago because the pain from working was too great to bear. I have severe DDD in entire lumbar spine and 3 levels in neck. Surgery is not an option for me. I have been reading this forum for about a month now and just found this post. Good luck with your surgery. I will looking for updates on your outcome.

    Good Luck Smitty, I'm hoping for a full and easy recovery. Back issues really suck. I was in an auto accident a couple years back and had some major soft tissue damage. It never really healed right, and after a certain point the physical therapists and the insurance basically said there was nothing more they could do.

    Hopefully that isn't the end result for you :)

    Welcome to the site...we're glad to have you aboard. Believe it or not, my tank is therapeutic for me. I wish you the best with your back, and thank you for the well wishes for mine.

    Thanks bro, I appreciate that. I'm sorry to hear that about your back, and you're right...insurance companies and jobs will eventually give up on you. My job has tried a few times to get me to retire, but I'm not going so easily.
