    To collectively come together and PRAY @ 9PM Central. One of my worst nightmares happened this weekend. My youngest daughter...whom most of you know is handicapped, woke us up in the middle of the nite Friday and said she was dizzy and her arms and legs tingled.
    The last time we took her to K.C. in November...the Dr.noticed in her X-ray...that she had a disc below the rod in her back,that had slipped forward...not side to side. He wanted us to keep an eye out for these symptoms and call if they showed up.
    I am PRAYING she doesn't have to have emergency surgery. When the Dr. seen the X-ray..he wasn't sure how close her spinal cord was to being pinched.
    So we are off to K.C. in the morning (earliest they could get her in) and she's all upset because "it's gonna ruin daddys birthday". I don't care about the birthday...just for her to have peace and NO MORE PAIN!! I can't tell you how many times I've cried about this since Friday.
    Enough of that...Just PRAY FOR HER TONITE!!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!

    Man, how much is one guy supposed to have thrown at him? I was bummed 'cause I saw 9 PM and figured I missed it, but sent one in anyway. Then I realized I was right there with you (9pm central) so anyway, thoughts and prayers sent your way. Best wishes, Marc

    I suggest to you.
    Find a young NeuroSurgeon to do the work, if there is any mention of spinal fusion run as fast as you can.

    I had several doctor tell me I had to have a spinal fusion done in 1999, I wouldnt let anyone touch my back.
    Until I found a young NeuroSurgeon about 34.
    He offered me a microdisktomy. He told me it may only last 5-10 years but by that time there will be something better, I had surgery the very next morning.
    That afternoon I was walking again, went home the same day.
    I won't lie I spend months laying down but I always got up and walked some everyday.
    My back is about 80 percent of what it use to be thanks to the surgury.
    And I have full motion of my back.
    There is a new thing out that is about 3 or 4 years old were they add a synthetic nuculas into the disk, I'm just waiting for trouble to have that done.

    My family is praying for your Daughter

    Thanks Scott...she had her first surgery @ 2 yrs. old. She had a curve in her spine in between the shoulders of about 93*. After the surgery..it was @ 36*..now it's back to about 54* even with a 4" titanium rod.
    I will get his diagnosis, but probably take her to Shriners/Dallas or St. Louis.
    She has already been to Minneapolis when we lived in Des Moines.

    Sorry to hear that...glad things are better now.
    No..I'm cool. My mom is gonna let me use her '01 Impala since the trucks not legal yet. It will be as soon as Sean's check clears...done alot to it to get it legal for inspection...including getting the fines paid...just gotta pay the taxes and it's ready. Biggest financial setback was it needed a COMPLETE Exaust system to pass inspection. So for 45 bucks more...it got a true new FLOWMASTER exhaust...sweeeeeet!!
    BTW...is your avatar a pic of you? If so...I want a bigger one. Putting a scrapbook together of my "Family"...Bob

    Bob, My God bless you and your family. I don't know why God does some of the things he does, but he does have better things in mind of all of us who believe in him. I know you hurt for your daughter because she's in pain, but stay strong and believe in God's love.

    Never Fear, Never Quit
