It’s a new week but it looks awfully familiar.

What is the perfect topper to a depressed Umma? How about an incapacitated Duhdee?

Duhdee’s been having back issues since last fall, they assumed a ruptured disk that was irritating his sciatic nerve. It should have resolved within 4-6 months. He went through PT and did OK but never great. Over the last two weeks it has simply gone to hell. He had an MRI last weekend because he was in increasing pain, by Wednesday he could barely get out of bed. On Saturday, he didn’t.

An orthopedic surgeon finally reviewed his MRI results on Saturday after having been hounded by the on call nurse…he does have a ruptured disk but it’s not irritating his sciatic nerve. It is pinching the nerve and has partially dislodged it. The only fix…surgery.

Life is going to be very interesting around here for the near future…

    Have you guys tried a chiropractor? Im not a big fan of them but it does re-leave pain. I will also pray for him, I had a major two disc injury and for years lived with major pain. I received prayer and my back lite up on fire and I was healed. I havent had any issue since.

    well this mother wishes she was living a little closer at this particular time to help this family out with transportation, cleaning, and maintenance of a healthy live style. I can’t say cooking help because I could not match up to my son’s abilities in that dept.

    Thanks everyone. We’ll figure it all out, it’s just a bump in the road. Grammy I can’t match up on the cooking either so Duhdee’s going to have to lower his standards for a bit!
