I had an appointment with the neurosurgeon today and....after much thought and prayer I have decided to have surgery. The doctor seems to be a smart guy..ha he better be....and he recommends I have a spinal fusion. We did not schedule a date yet, but we are shooting for sometime next week. Meanwhile I have a few pre-surgery items I need to take care of. Today I was fitted for a special, not so stylish, hard back brace that I will have to wear for 8 - 12 weeks after surgery...yippie...NOT! I also have to go get xrays tomorrow and at some point I need to have some blood work done. I am nervous, but excited to get this over with and start recovering. I am praying that this is what needs to be done and that I will be back to new by Christmas. I spoke with my work today and hopefully after recovering I will still have a position available for me at the hospital. Anyway just a quick update I am sure I will speak to everyone at some point over the phone. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!
