Prayers

My sister Cindy is back in the hospital and had to have another back surgery. They found a piece of bone that had broken off and was lodged between the spine and the nerve that runs down her right leg. The second surgery was late last night after ten o'clock Chicago time. She did not get back into her room until after two am our time.

I just spoke to her and she is much better. The extreme pain is gone and she is just contending with normal surgery type pain. She is expected to be in the hospital another day or two and then back at home to begin what will hopefully be an uneventful recovery.

Oh goodness! I certainly hope she has a speedy and full recovery. My DH had back surgery last year and he is a happy camper! Deb

To all of you that have cared. I am Cindy, the sister and let me tell you I am glad to be home today. My first surgery was Monday March 31st lasting 6 hours. Got to go home Friday April 4th. I had complained about the additional pain in my right leg and all they did to treat it was give me more drugs. Don't get me wrong the drugs were nice but did not really take away the pain. So after one visit to the ER on Saturday night with Xrays not showing anything I returned home with more drugs. Sunday I was ready to cut my leg off with a chain saw, so back to the ER where this time they did a CAT Scan where they saw the piece of bone. Surgey was Monday night and lasted 2 hours. Now I am on the road to recovery and it is very long..................
