June 21, 2006After 9 months I have been finally approved by the School District to have the surgery on my right hand, index finger, large joint which I already have an artificial joint, which was fractured by an on the job injury last September 05. They are going to replace it with a new one. This has been the most painful surgery I have had so far and I have had a few.
My hand doctor is a sweetheart, he is coming in next Tuesday (June 27th) on his day off to do this surgery for me. He knows how long this has gone on and how much pain I have been in.
I will check in Tuesday (27th) morning at 6:30 am and the surgery is schedule for 8:30 am. I am hoping I can stay in the hospital overnight.
The surgery will take place at Group Health in Tacoma and not sure which hospital they will put me in yet.
Trying to get Greg home so he can drive me up and back after the surgery and be here at the house for a few days till I get the pain under control, I also have my younger son, Chris is also.
So after Monday I won't be on here for awhile, I will try to have Greg post how I am doing.
Friday night the 23rd I will try to make it up to KK and then on Sunday, the XXX show, then that will be it for awhile for me.
Appreciate all the prayers and thoughts you can give me.
