Ok, since you were all so great about my back, I decided to share the "new" news! Not good at all. After going to the local ortho last Tues. she said the original diagnosis was not correct and promptly arranged for me to see a back expert in Tacoma. He has practiced at the big hospital in Seattle. The upshot of a cat scan etc , is that I am having back surgery next week in order to stabilize the vertebrae. I am thankful that up to this point, no serious damage has been done. Sometimes you just have to count your blessings! I will be looking at all your blogs as I can but probably no posting. I am in this miserable brace until the surgery. So thanks again for all your positive thoughts !
