Araldia has to have an epidural injection tomorrow hopefully to ease the pain a bit before they do the spinal surgery later this week with luck. She is touched by your responses and thoughts, and will be back as good as new soon enough.
She also asks you all walk around a bit every half hour you are sitting to avoid going through this yourselves.
The spinal block has stopped most of her leg pain but her back is still excruciating. She was admitted to hospital yesterday so hopefully surgery will be forthcoming this week. The disc herniated into her spinal cord compressing the nerves and affecting her movement as well as causing her extreme pain. Will update as I find out more.
Oh, poor thing! Hope she has lots of volunteers to wait on her hand and foot when she gets home! I have spine and joint problems and know how bad they can hurt... Might have to pick her brain when she's better, to see what she has to say about the surgery. My docs have brought it up, but I'm not convinced just yet.
Wow. I haven't been online in a while and didn't know about Araldia. She is the staff member I have had the most to do with and in my interactions with her I have always found her absolutely awesome (the photo of my piggy meat street you gave me is still my background). I actually got a lil teary at the thought of her being in such pain and having to go in for surgery. I genuinely hope you the best and please know that the love and well wishes of a little glitchen a world away, yet so close, will be with you.
