:H Hello everyone!
Well, we had so much snow this week that it has caused somewhat of a disaster in terms of attempts at travel. I was supposed to see a second opinion neurosurgeon tomorrow at 2 pm after waiting 2 months for this appointment. We had over a foot of snow tho in the past day or so. This has made travel impossible.
We live probably half a mile off the main highway in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. They also had a lot of snow in the Seattle proper area today. My neuro's office was closed today because of the snow and will probably be closed tomorrow. I had called them Monday this week to reschedule for tomorrow as my original appointment was today. Now I know I won't even be able to get out of my driveway. We live in an unincorporated area where the streets do not get snow plowed and sanded like the main highway does.
My wife even called in today and will tomorrow. She calls in maybe once very 6 years. Her supervisor even ended up in an accident on the freeway today attempting to get to work. When I talked to the scheduler Monday she said I had a choice for appointment this coming Friday (tomorrow) or Jan 19th. I would imagine since they were closed today and will likely be closed tomorrow they will let me reschedule a lot sooner.
Anyway, the snow is beautiful and I love having my wife home. But I just wonder how much more damage is going on with my degenerative discs, osteophytes, nerve impingement because my appointments and surgery are being delayed even longer. I don't know. I do know my pain and numbness has increased and spread.
Thanks for listening,
