Some of you know my wife had a ruptured disc fixed DEC 5th and has been slow to mend from what was supposed to be a pretty mild surgery as backs go. Sunday about 2am I hear her scream in pain and find her gripping the bed in agony begging me to make it stop hurting.. Talk about a helpless feeling! I got her up and got her repositioned in the bed as best I could and "talked her down" to calm her. I loaded her up with meds and got through the night sitting in a chair watching her until I could get a call from her surgeon.( Who I then found out the next morning has LEFT the practice!) Did new MRIs this morning and the DRs say she has burst the vertabrae..(How, we have NO clue) So she is now going to have to have a more invasive surgery and be out of work 6-8 unexpected and un-compensated weeks!! She is worried sick and in pain and I am just one man doing the best I can. 2007 was hard and 2008 so far isnt looking so good but chin up, I'm moving forward. Keep her in your prayers, we need all the support we can get. I pray they get it right this time because I really question the quality of the last surgery! But I cant prove it, so I just have to hope for the best.
