Good Morning Hydrangea! You are probably a little behind on all the information on me, but my surgery date was moved to this coming Friday the 5th. I'm as ready as can be for it, and have all the home friendly tools that I may be needing. Privey, was so gracious to lend them to me. My wife has an Aunt, that is supposed to be delivering a walker this week.
I'm glad to hear that you are doing better now, as I know it is quite the experience! :) My biggest concern is the pain, as I have yet to have a Dr understand that I have a low tolerance to pain, and a very high tolerance to pain meds. When I had my last Epupidural, that Dr, got the surprise of his life, and so did the Dr who did the Discogram. So again, that is a very big fear of mine.
I did read up on the Red Man Syndrome, and it was interesting reading. Did they take you back to the hospital in an Ambulance? Those clots can be very scary, and that is another worry of mine as well. That is what caused my Heart Attack in 2002. Hydrangea, if and when you feel up to it, please email me, or maybe we can go to a chat room to visit Take care of your self first, and get the rest you need. Make sure your walking enough too!
We have several members from the church, that will come at a moments notice, if needed to help either Deborah or I, and a friend of ours from KC is coming to stay a week with us. My sister will be here to spend a few days with me, and give Deborah some relief, so that she can do the mommy thing, and give her some free time.
A friend of mine just had a fusion, and he said when he takes off the chest brace, he feels like his spine is floating around. Do you have the same feeling with yours?
Thank you so much for remembering me, and I have talked about
you with my wife every day, wondering how you were getting along. I hope we both have a successful outcome on this. Bless you, and I will continue to pray for you.
