It's been a bit since I have posted and there is so much to write about, but there isn't enough time to write an extensive blog post tonight. I have a ton of "work, work" to get done and on top of that the hard wood for the new floor arrived and I need to move a bunch of stuff to be ready for the demolition that starts on Thursday. Therefore I am just going to touch on a few quick subjects and come back to much of this stuff when I have time to write a proper blog entry.
I am having another round of surgery tomorrow. On Monday April 16th I met with a neurosurgeon by the name of Dr. Elliot. I consulted him to seek out a "second" opinion of what I needed to do about the pain in my back. His recommendation was surgery. The surgical option that he recommend was very different than my previous 2 operations and very different from the surgical option offered by my original neurosurgeon. The option that Dr. Elliot recommend was to go into my back and essentially roto-root the place where my nerves emerge from my spinal column. The area that the nerves emerge from the vertebrae is called the foramen. When I originally called to get my surgery scheduled they gave me a date of June 28th. Of course that was way too far off for me and I told them that. On Monday afternoon I got a call from the surgeon's office saying they had a cancellation and they could get me in on Wednesday at 6:30AM. Despite how close that was to now, I decided I had to go with it as I want to be out of this pain as quickly as possible.
Having the surgery tomorrow morning has thrown my entire schedule into an uproar. I am supposed to be on conference calls for work from 6AM until 9AM and now I have to cancel out of those - not particularly good for my career. My manager has me functioning as her business operations manager which means I am responsible for managing many of the day-to-day activities that go into our p&l (profit loss) statement. I really should be on these calls but my back is going to take priority!
That's going to be it for tonight. I have so many different ideas swirling around in my head for blog entries but I just don't have the time tonight. Provided my surgery goes well and there are no medical mistakes - I will have lots of time to write tomorrow
Thanks and peace to all! Hopefully the next time I post my back will be in the state that it was before the stress fracture in my leg.
