Default I'm in the hospital

Just wanted to say I haven't been here much lately because it's been crazier than it usually is at Christmas. Mama just got out of the hospital the day before Christmas from having her lobectomy and now I'm admitted the day after for surgery tomorrow.

I have been having pain in my shoulder, neck & arm with some tingling in my hand for right at three weeks now. I've been at the doctor's office a total of 3 times. They sent me for a MRI Friday and I followed up with the doctor Monday. He said it showed a large bilateral broad-based herniated disc at my C5-6 and was surprised I wasn't having pain on both sides. He said I need to see a neurosurgeon right away. Well, since yesterday was Christmas, I knew I wouldn't hear anything until today at the earliest. The regular doctor's office called me this morning to let me know she was putting in the call and it's usually about 3 days before anyone hears from them. So, you can imagine my surprise when the surgeon himself called me himself about an hour or so after that! He said he looked at my MRI and it's pretty significant and cortisone injections, physical therapy, etc wont work for this and I need surgery before more damage is done.

So, if you don't hear from me for a couple of days or so, you'll know why. I just miss my little Leila so much and hope she'll be ok without me. My hubby loves her about as much as I do, but I still worry he won't do things exactly like I like.

Oh my! I'm sorry that you're going through this ! I'll pray that your surgery is a success and you'll be back to normal in no time! I'm sure that Leila will be fine, with your hubby, but I know that you'll miss her!

Oh no, Pam. Talk about a full plate. Sending prayers that the surgery goes well and you'll be on your way to being pain free. I'm sure Leila will be fine. We all have to cut our spouses a little slack sometimes in the care of our fluffs. Their hearts are in the right places

Oh no, Pam. However, it sounds as though you have a doctor who is really on top of things and will have you feeling better soon. I understand how much you will miss Leila. I also understand the concerns about your hubby taking are of Leila like you do ... but, I am sure Leila will be just fine.

I'll say prayers that you will have a speedy recovery and that you will be feeling much better as the New Year arrives! Healing hugs being sent your way.
