My Sweet Leetle Seester Hazel is scheduled to have surgery tomorrow (Tuesday) morning. She’s got a herniated disc and is having that nifty surgery where they go in through your neck and I think, replace the bulging disc with a piece of cadaver bone that acts as a plate. (The link may not be exactly what I was looking for. Time constraints, you know…) You’ll have to forgive me if I don’t have this exactly right. I’m not one to grasp things that make me squeamish. I will be talking to her later hopefully and if this is wrong, I’ll post a correction. I only found out about this last night as Hazel is
very stubborn and doesn’t want family members to know she’s been in excrutiating pain for almost a month rather stingy tight-lipped about her personal problems. No, we’re not much alike… And yes, I should call her more often.
Anyway, I asked her if she minded if I posted about the surgery and she laughed and said I could. I know some of her fans read here. So please, keep her in your thoughts today and if you can spare a prayer, it would be appreciated. Thanks. I’ll keep you posted.
Update: Turns out I was pretty close with the link. The procedure Hazel’s having is an Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion. This link gives additional information. Here is a video of the surgery that I found for those of you who get into that sort of thing. Click on the prompt in the upper right hand corner of the page. You’ll have to let me know how it plays out. I, unfortunately, do not fall into that category. I’m also assuming that it may be of a graphic nature, so consider this your warning.
Update update: As of Tuesday @ 5:40 pm, Hazel’s surgery went fine and she is doing well. I’m sure she’d love to hear from you. She’s in ********* Hospital in Rm. **** and her phone number is ***/***/****.
