Sometimes Life Just Plain SUCKS.....

I am writing this post now, because I am not sure what next week is going to bring.. If you don't know already my husband is disabled and has been for the last 7 years. He was working in NYC in July of 2002 and was in a minor car accident. Ever since that day our lives have not been the same, he wound up having to have 2 neck surgeries still waiting approval on a back surgery all the while fighting with Worker's Compensation. Seriously gotten the point where my feelings about them is they can just "BITE ME".
As if all of this isn't bad enough, we just found out last week that he has to have yet another neck surgery. But this one is an EMERGENCY, he had a cat scan done about 1 month ago and because of a life threatening heart attack his father had while on vacation in Canada, my husband never had the follow up appointment with his doctor until this week. According to the doctor, the C1 and C2 are herniated to the point they are protruding into his spinal cord by about 50%. He told him that one wrong move and he could end up like Christopher Reeves (paralyzed and on a respirator ) Nice, huh??
Last night he had an MRI the doctor ordered to make sure that the cat scan results are correct and we should know Monday or Tuesday by the latest when this "emergency" surgery will happen. So once again, everything in my life is on "hold" while we deal with this. This is not what I thought my life was going to be at age 39, but it is and you do what you have to do!! ( I guess, right?) Ugh, hopefully I will be able to get through this one with my mind still intact and my husband still in one "moving" piece.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog today. I'll definitely be keeping you in my prayers this week. I know how you feel. My 6 year old is having dental surgery under anesthesia at the hospital on Wednesday. The surgery has been planned for months, having a 6 year old at age 47 was not... but like you said, you gotta do what you gotta do. Hugs to you. Karen
