Hi all my pals,
Wow I had to rub my eyes I thought I was seeing double.. I almost fell over.. When I saw all of my special pals wearing shirts that said they love me.. Me little me.. I never knew how many special friends I had until I got sick..You all mean so very much to me..
Now that I am home and resting I thought it would be good to update everyone on how things are going.. As you know two weeks ago tomorrow on Father's day my neck started to bother me again.. Mom took me to see my Doc Paul on that Tuesday 6/15. He kept me for the day and took some xrays of my neck to see what was going on.. I was having a lot of pain near my C1 vertebra..This was not a good thing because that is the area that was broken almost two years ago. Doc Paul sent my xrays to the Doc that did my surgery.. He said I needed to have one of the pins in my neck removed because it had moved.. On Weds June 25,2008 I went in to have my pin removed thanks to the help of many many of my pals... When the doctor did the surgery to take my pin out he discovered it had moved. He tried to look for it but could not find it. He did however remove a pin that was very pointy and poking me. Then they took more xrays to see where that pin was that they could not fine.. They could not tell through the xrays so momma was told I needed a MRI to see where it was.. But it would have to wait until Thrusday the 26th to take place.. On the 26th I had a MRI done to see where that pin was above the skull or below and in my brain.. The doctor could not tell for sure he thought that it was in the brain.. So the MRI had to be sent to a doctor that could read it..On Friday the 27 we found out that the pin is in my brain.. Very sad day for everyone, but we need to think positive. So everyone is praying that my pin does not move.. This is scary for me and my family but we will take every day as it comes as a blessing.. Like everyone says there are people that live with bullets, shrapnel, and other things in thier brains. So I might be little but I can handle a pin(I am hoping..)
Right now I am doing fine.. Mom has to watch out for some signs that the pin moved.. So if we see any changes we will surely let you all know. Mom has decided she will not do any more surgery to the pin that is missing because the doctor told her I most likely would not make it through the surgery.. And at this point she would rather have me with a few problems then not have me at all..
I want to thank all of you for all your prayers, Lighting of candles for me,sending me special gifts on my page and in the mail also showing your support by wearing shirt saying I
