Liz and Christina, it is so good to hear from you! I'm so glad you are safe and that your families and critters are safe, too.

My neighbors are driving me crazy. They are such nice people, but they are very loud and I've just got to get some sleep sometime. I'm grouchy and out of sorts due to lack of sleep and that's just not like me.

Just a heads up that I will not be on line again until Friday evening or Saturday. I need to go to my mom's house to do some clean up. No computer or internet there.

So I see the neurosurgeon again today, and I saw my pain doc yesterday. Last shot didn't help like they had hoped and pain doc looked at CT scan from last week also. The MRI had shown moderate stenosis in L4/L5, the CT is showing severe.

With the MRI, they were hesitant about surgery, but after seeing the CT, pain doc tentatively scheduled surgery for Oct 5th. He just wants me to see the neurosurgeon today to make sure he is on board. Unless he is absolutely against it, we are going forward with the surgery.

This particular surgery is to putf in a Superion device. It's relatively new, but pain doc is hopeful that it will work. One inch incision, day surgery. Hopefully easy recovery.

Change of plans again. Not like that happened at all in the last week!

I came home after work today. I was going to stay overnight near the office and work there tomorrow. My boss gave me permission to work from home. He asked I keep a log of what I do in case senior management wants proof I worked. None of us are supposed to work from home this week. We either go to our office or use vacation time. Our rationale is going to be that my office is closed and without power since the school where I'm based is closed until further notice. It was hairy driving to the other office today. Traffic lights were out, including major intersections. Thankfully most people were being good little boys and girls and treating the intersections as four-way stops.

I'm glad to be home tonight. Been away so much the last week. I wanted to be in my space with my critters and my stuff. Does that sound silly?

Child, I have a friend with a problem that sounds similar to yours. She had the surgery and has been very satisfied with the results. She still has occassion pain, usually after she does something she shouldn't have, but it's not often and no where near the level it used to be. Crossing fingers for you.
