Back to back to back...

Well we're back from Sydney and I've seen the doctor. To make a long story short, we have to go back to Sydney next Thursday. I will be checking into hospital on Friday morning at 6:30 am to have lower back surgery. Since it's a Friday I don't suppose much will happen over the weekend and I'm looking to be there based on that until at least Tuesday but more likely Wednesday. I'm not sure if the doctor will restrict my flying or not but if he doesn't then I'll be back home ASAP.

I have to have the surgery as the opening were the nerves run through up my spinal column is narrowing which is affecting the overall nerve patterns. This is the reason I'm having so much pain from my back and down my leg not to mention I'm losing sensation in my left leg all together. We are also hoping that as an added bonus this will give me a little extra relief from the pain associated with my peripheral neuropathy in my feet. Only time will tell if that wish is granted.


As for James' mum, she is holding her own. She needs to gain so much weight but she has no appetite. we took her out to eat several times and she did eat but other than that she eats nothing. We will work on he some more when we are up there next week. She's a fighter and we will fight along with her as long as she wants to fight.

So that's the excitement around here. I'll still post a few useless post between now and next week until then I'm out of here. Enjoy...
