Spencer is in surgery at the moment; everything is going good. The surgery has lasted about 7.5 hrs so far. They are pulling out the bottom bone and adding a cage to hold the space. They need to get the bone away from the Spinal Cord. Then they will flip him on his side and add 8 screws along his back (4 on each side).
