  • Due to my last MRI
    The surgeons have decided I need surgery.
    First they need to lift the skull off the spine.
    Then build up C1

    Kinda scared.
    Without surgery paralysis is for sure

    What you've described sounds scary. I would be concerned if you weren't scared. You've really got a rough row to hoe. Now it's getting through the surgery.

    I encourage you not to look very far ahead. "A day at a time" makes a lot of sense right now. Your path to resurgery will be pretty defined (appts, tests, clearances, registration etc). Just focusing on what's in front of you may help relieve some stress.

    Please keep us posted on what's happening and how you're feeling. We care, wish you well, have hope for a good outcome. I'll keep an eye out for your next post.

    Lot, thanks for updating us. Seems like you have only one way to go. I'm sending you support energy for use in the next week's set of challenges. Do you have a surgery date yet?

    We care. Keep on posting. :))) :-)))
