A bit of news
March 18, 2008 | by Jared
Hey everyone. Yesterday morning I woke up with a wicked neckache and a ton of pain shooting down my left arm. The pain increased throughout the day until I caved at about 10:30pm and Rachel took me to the ER. Anyway, the long and the short of it is, I'm in the hospital right now and am scheduled for surgery tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12noon. The surgery is to correct a severely ruptured disc in my neck. The procedure they're going to do is called a "cervical C6/7 transcorporal discectomy." Sounds cool, eh?
I'm feeling a lot better today, thanks to not moving at all for about 24 hours and a decent amount of narcotics. I'd appreciate any prayers you'd throw my way. My nuerosurgeon is named Dr. David Lowry, and he seems like a good guy. Rachel and I are doing fine, not too worried or anything. Thanks!
