Hey guys. I know that many of you check in from time to time to visit me. I have to tell you that I won't be posting for a while. I fell on Thursday and whacked my head pretty hard off a dresser. I thought I was ok, but the headache was progressing daily. I woke up on Sunday with a headache that would kill a horse. My husband took me to the urgent care site and after only 15 minutes, the doctor came in and said they couldn't see me. I needed a CAT scan and they couldn't do that there. I did have a concussion and they wanted to check for bleeding on my brain.
We headed to the ER and 14 hours, a CAT scan, 4 MRIs, and two shots of morphine, they found out that I have cervical stenosis in my C4 and C5 vertebrae. I am now in a cervical collar and have an appointment with the neurosurgeon tomorrow morning at 9:30. There is a 98% chance that I have to have surgery on my neck to enlarge the opening in the vertebrae.
Cervical stenosis is a problem. A major problem. If I happen to hit my head or twist my neck the wrong way, I could end up as a quadreplegic. I am not all about that. So, I have to be very careful. No lifting, twisting, bending over, or anything strenuous. My daughter is such a good housekeeper at 8 years old, she is helping me out alot. My husband took me to vote this morning and is taking me to the doctor in the morning.
I just wanted to give you guys a heads up so that you won't be worried if you don't see any posts for a few days.
