    Adding a NEW temporary Administrator -> Reinhard

    Post  Carol on Wed Sep 30, 2015 12:48 pm

    Aloha everyone,

    Tomorrow I will be going in for cervical spine surgery as a result of the auto accident I was in last year. They will be removing/replacing 3 cervical discs and also putting in a titanium plate to hold it all together. I should have done this last year but was too chicken for a variety of reasons. However, the nerve damage from postponing the surgery is extensive and this needs to happen now. Basically, I'll be out of commission for a bit - don't know how long - hence my asking Reinhard to step in as Admin to help out.

    As some of you may or may not know Mercurial has not logged in since last January, nor has he responded to repeated emails that I've sent to him. Unfortunately, I lost his telephone number when moving the office and can only contact him via email, which he hasn't responded to in months. Hence, I ask my husband, Reinhard, to take on the task of Admin just in case there is a problem where I can't do the job. Reinhard is a hospice and home health nurse so is very easy to get along with if you need to contact him for a problem on the forum. However, Mercurial was our tech computer expert so we're out of luck if something along those lines should arise.

    Meanwhile, someone else is there to take over the reigns should the need arise. You're a great group and I appreciate each and everyone of you, along with your various and most excellent posts.

    Thank you so much for everything during all of this time.

    After surgery Reinhard "may" post an update to let you know how things went. Given this surgeon's reputation we expect an excellent outcome.

    I've talked to one of his past patients who had a similar surgery with him and she was very impressed with his work and her results. Hopefully, I'll be back home by this Saturday with a very sore throat.

    Meanwhile, I'm happy to have moved beyond the fear factor and am looking forward to being out of pain from the spinal stenosis.

    As Reinhard is an RN he'll be with me the entire time while in the hospital and at home with the hospital post care. I'm in excellent hands.

    Take care and be blessed.  Hadriel

    Today is Tuesday, Oct 6th and I'd like to thank you for your kind thoughts and good wishes. My time at the computer is very limited. I think it's a good idea to keep Reinhard on as Admin at least until Mercurial returns just so there is a back-up person if needed.  JT Carol

    Yes Pris, I'm okay. I had the surgery on Oct 1st. So am now in recovery. Was informed that the spine to fuse itself can take 3-10 months. The process of removing the discs, drilling off the bone spurs and calcification on the ligaments was part of the work they did - the other half was replacing the discs with donated bone material in plastic discs also filled with stem cells to promote bone growth and holding all of that together with a metal titanium plate that is screwed in. Right now I feel a bit like Tony Stark in Iron man with a metal plate inserted into my throat.

    It's just another one of those things/challenges life brings for one to deal with. Except I didn't get to experience any OBE with all the meds. dang. Rolling Eyes

    The neurological damage will take time to recover from too aa new neuro net pathways need to be created. We'll be back swimming in the ocean in a month.. so that's something to look forward to.

    Wow. Shocked  That's sounds... amazing.

    And, what you said about not getting an OBE from all the meds...  Too bad, eh?!  I was put under once and I felt like I was doing backward somersaults -- that would explain it!  

    Anyways, all the best with your healing journey! sunny

    Welcome back, Carol  cheers So good to hear you've come through the operation.
    Are you sure you're not on the other side? Just kidding. I wish you a recovery while being at ease,
    soon in familiar ocean's waves too. May you have a nice rest, just like this white cat and....

    If pumpkins are around, in your place in the world, enjoy this recepee on a cozy afternoon, Carol!
    If it's smooth enough to be endured, for your throat  Cheerful

    Welcome Back, Carol!! I Hope the Pain and Discomfort Are Not Overwhelming. Swimming in a Month Sounds Promising!! I've only been high on drugs once in my life -- when my mom gave me a pre-surgery shot prior to an appendectomy (when I was 10)!! The nurse was new and scared -- so my mom gave me the shot -- and she didn't even work in that hospital!! Can you imagine that happening now (in our sue-happy world)??!! I remember telling my mom "I feel really good!!" But No OBE!!

    Thank you for the follow-up posts Pris, BB & Oxy. Love the pictures (especially cat ones as I always email those to my daughter who is a super duper cat lover.

    OBEs are the bomb and most of the time fun but one of the first ones I had involved an auto accident at age 19 when nano seconds prior to impact with my chest head smashing into the steering wheel, I (conscious awareness me) was out behind my head watching the entire event unfold. Pain came hours later. Ironically during the deer incident no OBE as I think I was needed to be fully conscious to control the decent of the vehicle down the side of the embankment. All those years living in SNOW and off wheeling in various mountain terrain paid off.

    You should have seen the look on my anethesiologist's face as I described floating out the wall once under laughing gas and another time under morphine for the herniated discs. He was standing there after surgery making sure I was okay when I came out from being under for 5 hours. Alas, I had no good OBE stories to share with him. dang

    Now for some great NEWS, Mercurial emailed me today.  Hadriel  He's alive  Oooyeah 1  Oooyeah 1  Oooyeah 1 happy dance time and will come back to help out this weekend. So we can give him a big welcome when he returns. Meanwhile, everyone who has been having those little annoying glitches with our software program may get them fixed.

    Very cute Pris. The anesthesia drugs and narcotics are now out of my system. Took 7 days to detox the worst of it, so am not that sleepy during the day.

    So it's just short kitty naps during the day now.

    Thank you mudra. Hadriel Today it has been one week since the surgery. I don't know where the time went but it flew by and I slept a lot. We found out what went wrong on the previous surgery from getting hold of the records from back then, so that type of medication error would not happen this time. And talking with others who had similar surgeries with successful outcomes took away the fear factor. It's good to be on the mend. Lionhawk

    Thank you Mall. On the mend is a good thing. Next month we'll be back in the ocean swimming 3 times a week... which we're both looking forward to. Sabina
