    I've been having upper back and shoulder pain since mid August and after several attempts with chiropractic (and at DC's suggestion) went to a neurosurgeon.

    I have a deteriorating cervical disc causing all the problems, so Monday 5:30am I will be at the hospital for surgery. They actually go through your throat to get to the spine. Surgeon assures me that the procedure is simple and safe.

    I don't really have any major worries or concerns, but if anyone is so inclined, I will deeply appreciate your prayers. Thanks guys, and Merry Christmas.

    My throat has been slit and sewn back up. Last night was long and painful but now I'm home.

    Yes, Jon. Take care of yourself. I'm expediting to you 1each, small, service bell. You just "ting-a-ling it, and momma will come rinning to tend and serve you! Be nice, and she'll sing "Soft Kitty" like they do for Sheldon.

    Jon,
    Be a good little democrat and suck everything out of this that you can. It's not everyday you get your throat cut. Get it while you can. After you heal it's back to normal again. :wink:

    Yeah, Jon, what's your status now? Can we count on you for a rousing camp ballad? Say, "El Paso"? Or, maybe "Ballad of the Fox"?

    It's been 2 weeks today. Recovery is not as rapid as I had hoped but I've been able tolerate the residual pain without taking as many pain killers as allowed. I do tire out sooner than I like and I do nap a lot. Sadly, there will be no skiing :( this year but the surgeon thinks I'll be able to paddle :) this year.

    Good on ya fella. Slow recovery is better than no recovery. But do we ever recover as fast as we want to? Go ahead and sleep Jon. You need it.
