Accident in '04:
A classic example of no act of kindness goes unpunished resulting in:
Shattered hip and femur, hardware along with somehow disrupting lower lumbar region.
Chronolgy here is a bit off but please bear with me...
AS time progressed in '05-'06 it became insreasingly apparent that someting wasn't right.

'11 establsihed that C-6-7 was herniated and budlging.. Hadn't been that high previously but physical activity must had no doubt done the trick.
New Pain cycles down the right leg form the hip on 2/'14 to the Achilles tendon were attention getting to say the least....Treating wth Hydocodone and Gababpentin at four hour intervals
MRI revealed zilch on 3/'14
CT/Myeolgram of 5/08/14 awaiting read and notification....
