Surprise Surgery
January 30th, 2009 by suzy in Uncategorized

Looks like I’ll be scarce around here for the next few days. My sister and her husband are in town, but it’s not to visit me (or not only). My brother-in-law had surgery on his back over Christmas of 2007, and it proved so popular that he’s having more done.

We knew there were problems, but we didn’t expect the surgeon to say he couldn’t understand why BIL could walk at all, and book him in for emergency surgery. So he’s in a nice private room in a San Francisco hospital, with a sweeping southern exposure and the complete inability to have a cigarette, which I’m sure he’s enjoying almost as much as the hospital food.

My sister is here with me, and I expect this weekend will be full of trips to the city and back, and hoping for the best. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers and whatever you believe in, ’cause we need all the help we can get.

Good luck and courage to all of you in your time of need. I’m going to keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

A whole lot of thoughts and prayers coming to you from Mike, Jennifer, Matthew & Marina xox

Hmm, by back to you mean lower or upper? I would think lower (since it’s the lower back that causes so many continual problems), but you said a soft cushy foam neck brace in a later entry which makes me think upper, i.e., closer to the neck.

It was the upper – I think it was C3-6. He’s doing much better!
