My spine surgery was abruptly canceled last week, nine days before it was supposed to take place. Let me tell you, when you know you’re going to be the hospital a week, unable to drive for a month, you have a business, family visiting and a need to buy groceries when there are none on the shelf, it’s a pain. But it’s nothing like the pain of having the surgery nuked, unexpectedly, out of the clear blue sky.
This is is all for my benefit or so I’m told. I work hard to hold my tongue. It’s that Mars Neptune in Pisces squaring Gemini. To be effective, you must pretend to be mindless.
In whatever case, it’s been an difficult undertaking. Rules, rules, rules, rules and waiting, waiting, waiting and waiting. Obviously, I have to persevere.
I just want to pop on here and explain my absence. I’m here and working with clients. I just have to get this other stuff done – period. I am very slowly making headway.
I have a telemedicine appointment with a potential surgeon tomorrow morning. I’m hoping he can and will fix my back and that I like his proposal. If we connect successfully, I still have to wait on a (remote) second opinion, even though I have seen six orthopedic surgeons and two neurosurgeons. The way it’s going, I might have surgery by the end of the month – maybe!
That’s about it! I am keeping up with my newsletter. I’ll know more after I talk to this doctor. While he’s definitely accomplished, these surgeons tend to specialize. His nurse mentioned, “tumors”. I don’t have one so he may refer me…
Thanks for keeping things lively around here. I appreciate it. And yes, that is the spine in question. Ugh!
