Thank you all for your prayers, good thoughts, and kind words! Wow, everything happened so fast once the neurosurgeon got involved! He admitted me the day he was called and saw my MRI and did surgery the following day. He showed the MRI to my husband and me at the hospital. It really did look bad! There was no spinal fluid at all at C5-6 because of how bad the bulging disc had it blocked. It's also bulging at C6-7 but he didn't operate on that part...he said I probably will have to have that done too. It was very easy to see the herniated discs on the MRI for my husband and me and he also pointed out where spinal fluid was and wasn't and we could understand that too. Anyway, he said the surgery went well and he was able to do the replacement instead of a fusion. With the replacement, I will have better flexion in my neck than with a fusion and he wasn't sure if he'd be able to do it until he got in there. I'm so glad it worked out in my favor. I do have an ugly incision on the front of my neck where he went in, but hoping that will fade a lot as it heals. I do have some soreness and stiffness, which is better at some times & worse at others, but I'm only a day post-op, so I'm hoping it won't be as bad in the next days. Leila & I were so happy to see each other when I got home and even though Ray didn't brush her, she doesn't look so bad afterall.
