What a long time since I've updated. It has been one crazy week. In the beginning of the week John said his neck hurt more than it ever had, so we went to a physician to check it out. To make a long story short, John is suffering from sprained ligaments in his neck. I think that is what the spinal surgeon said. John will have to go to Physical Therapy for about three months is what I think he was told by the surgeon.
The reason I am so unclear on what John has wrong with him, and what his treatment is, is because first the radiologist, then John's physician told us that John's neck was broken. We were terrified, to say the least. John was given a collar to wear, and sent home. He was told to lay around until the neurosurgeon called. The next morning (Tuesday) a spinal surgeon called John. He went in and additional x-rays were taken. That is when it was determined that the injury that the other doctors had seen was an old neck break, and was not dangerous, and would not migrate and hurt the spine.
At any rate, we are so grateful that John's neck is not broken. He is still in tremendous, horrific pain, but that's okay - it's better than having a broken neck. John is wearing his collar, going to PT for about three months, then to massage therapy. It will be a long ride up. But it is okay.
Finally, I want to say, in the midst of all these appointments, I didn't get time to do any entries. I've missed the Monday Morning Question, and haven't been able to do a JLand Photo Shoot in a couple of weeks. This really disturbs me, as I like to stay consistent. I hope you all understand.
Love you all, and I will be back to writing regularly,
