Oh Happy Day...



It is a very happy day in our family. My dad does not have ALS or MS or any other terrible motor neuron disease. He does have a severely ruptured disk. It will require surgery but it is treatable and it isn't going to shorten his life span. There are risks with the surgery but compared to what we thought we were facing I can deal with the risks.

Thank you all who sent emails and prayers and positive thoughts. Now I am hoping to get back to my quirky self very soon!

TTFN!

Wahoo! Just make sure he understands that he has to do the PT after the surgery. That is a MAJOR part of the recovery. My sis & s-i-l both had ruptured disk surgery. I'm very happy for your family!
