Hey friends. I have some bad news. To make a long story short, I have ruptured 2 discs in my neck. It happened Friday afternoon. I will be having surgery probably at the end of this week. While I was at the ER having my MRI, my husband got the call that his Mother had died, so we are dealing with that, too. Also, my older son is scheduled for knee surgery on Weds. and I had planned to be his caregiver through that.

My neck has me concerned as I had a fusion of two lower levels back in the late 90s. This new injury is in the upper part of my neck and the doctor said he may have to do a fusion of my entire cervical spine, which would leave me with a stiff neck. So, I'm pretty scared and also frustrated. Won't be exercising for a long while and I worry about gaining weight on top of everything else.

So I would appreciate your prayers and I'll check in as soon as I know any more definite news.
