An MRI on Saturday, and a call from the docs assistant today verified that. This afternoon the surgeon called and asked, "how about we fix this on Saturday?"
"Yes!!" I said. "I'm so ready to do this."
And so once more I'm back on the table and oh I can't wait for him to pull that chunk of nucleus pulposis (the herniated disc material) away from the nerve root.
On Sunday I hope to be able to sleep on my side, sit once more in a chair, walk without pain, no longer camp out all day on the floor, and return to a normal life.
So, that's the latest. Thanks to all who read, who contribute and who have shared with me how much you care. I'll probably never ever meet you but I've enjoyed getting to know you.
Oh, btw ...... Katie did let me worship her feet. It was last Thursday. The opening game for the NFL was about to start. I've been waiting to watch football for months and just as the game started, Katie said, "OK, you can tend to my feet."
I don't think she meant to put me into a 'predicament' but when the offer came, there was only once choice - and for all of the first quarter I was in a wonderful place - at her feet!
