I'll admit the thought of getting my neck sliced open and hardware put in is kind of scary. I'll get most scared when I'm on the gurney and they are getting me ready for impending doom, lol.
I'm 56 years old and you'd think I wouldn't be scared like this. Still, I went out in the woods today and sent up smoke and prayers with my personal prayer pipe and had a good cry.
The emotional states we go thru are like a roller coaster, aren't they with this kind of surgery?
Anyway, you guys are great! If you have a few moments send up prayers for me.
I see the surgeon this coming Monday afternoon. My DO says I have major neck surgery coming up c3 thru c7 involved, and hardware.
