Mom went in for surgery today on her neck again. Today was all about burning nerve endings there that is expected to alleviate the pain she has there.
Her neck has been a pain for at least a decade. After damage caused by a vehicle accident (my mind is foggy about the beginning), she has had several surgeries which have included fusing of 4 different vertebrae and many clean-up operations. But it is getting to the point where more fusions will limit her ability to turn her head (even more) which could keep her from driving. You may remember the taco pie post awhile ago. That evening ended in tears... my mother's. She was working so hard to get dinner and everything ready but her head/neck was killing her. It seems that one of the non-fused discs is now bulging.
We are hoping that this surgery helps but I've talked with mom about a few other options that we'll look into after this. Nerve endings grow back and so will the pain (if it is alleviated at all.) She will probably be at home trying to force herself to do something she shouldn't instead of resting. That means she'll probably also wind up popping on here to check up on me. Mom, get some sleep and I'll be stopping by tomorrow after work. I love you.
