We found out last week that Chris has a big herniated disc in his neck. Sooooo.... On Friday he will be heading to the OR to have a discectomy with bone graft and fusion of C-6 and C-7. I must say, we are a little nervous. We even discussed with the doc about just waiting and not doing surgery at this point, but the surgeon strongly advised going ahead with the surgery. Chris has been having numbness and tingling in his hands and forearms. This will only get worse and eventually he would have nerve death and loss of function of his arms. Epidural blocks would be of no help, so there's not really much of a choice other than surgery. He goes in at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, please pray that things go smoothly with no complications.
