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.

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.
