Update: Emily's Injured

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.

Thought I would show you guys a pic of my new fashion accessory.  Cute ain't it.  LOL.  Thanks for stopping in and I will update you guys as soon as I know something.  God bless ya'll.
