Well folks, I'm sure a few of you may have noticed I haven't been posting as much as I normally have, nor have I been in chat as much either. Well, I reckon I'm at a point that I can shed some light on whats been goin on to prevent me from it. Two weeks ago my husband (Hershell aka Redticrunner) passed out at a friends house and was taken by ambulance to the hospital. After nearly a week's stay and numerous tests and monitors hooked up to him they decided he wasn't having heart problems as we might have feared but attributed it mostly to high bp, high stress level, possibility of a pinched nerve, and getting up too fast. So, he was released from the hospital with a referral to the family doc to have MRI scheduled. Well, because she was having troubles gettin approval from insurance company to get the MRI, she released him to go back to work on Thursday with a warning to take things easy til his MRI appt that she finally got for the 11th. On Friday I received a phone call at school saying he hurt his back at work and is being sent to the doc. He has been off for 3 weeks now. Between my finals this week and his tests and doc visits and keeping up with normal daily routines, I am wiped out. As tired as I am, I truly feel for him because I can see where it is taking such a mental toll on him because he is such an active person and he cant go and do as normal. We got the results back from the MRI. He has digenerative disc disease in the C5 & C6 vertabre, there is protrusion there but its not enough to put things in a terrible bind. He is being referred to a neurosurgeon in Memphis, Tn on Jan 2nd but they are tryin to get the appt moved up. As of right now, he is being told he can go back to work but has to have restricted duties until the neurosurgeons visit. Now, I'm not one to post much asking for prayers, but I do believe in the power of it. I would like to ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers until we get this thing figured out and hopefully find a fix that can get him back out doin is normal thing which is huntin and fishin. The doc even made a point to tell him not to bother with pickin up a gun and goin to the woods....I really thought he was gonna tune up and cry. Thanks for all yalls efforts.
