It had turned into a rough week. My neck and all the radiating pain is pretty serious. I have a long (3 level) fusion of vertebrae in my neck which was done in a surgery in 2010. Now it seems that the disc just below the fusion has become even worse than it was before.
For now, it's daily physical therapy, lots of medicines, and taking it easy to try to make this pain go away without more surgery. My doctors fear that the next fusion is on the horizon. I had to cancel a trip to the desert because I'm in too much pain to go.
In the past two days, I rapidly went from feeling totally defeated to my normal fighting spirit. Because I love sunrise, I made sure that Shyla and I were outside to see it this morning. I cling to what I love at times like this.
