I just had spinal surgery yesterday and I am not allowed to lift over 5lbs for 2 weeks and then 10 lbs for 3 months which rules out grabbing guitars with their cases, and my banjo. But not my ukes. They're light as a feather and I have a bunch hanging at arm height on my wall. I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't play any music for any significant period of time, so thank God I have my ukes!!! ;)

Not only are plenty of instruments heavier than uke, but they require you to sit or stand a certain way, and the ones that are lighter might require lots of air pressure going on inside you that might well hurt a healing spine..

Nah, thank goodness for that ethos that a good uke is a light uke! But don't overdo it, and get well soon!

I know what it is like to be laid up with serious surgery. Da-time tv is enough to make you claw your eyes out.

Happy strumming and get well soon!

Heal fast, and just be careful, even with a uke. Take your time...

Here's to your speedy recovery... but which god(s) do you thank? Me, I prefer to thank the doctors, the nurses, the uke manufacturers and distributors...

Well naturally I thank the doctors, nurses and fine instrument builders in this world for their services. "Thank God" is a figure of speech that I am sure we have all heard...


And thanks again for the well wishes folks!
