Update on me....
Permalink  
 


It's been a long Winter and Spring around here.    Last November had pain in my neck. Turned out to be a tumor inside my spinal cord.  After many appts and such, had spinal surgery in Feb.  Doctors cut my neck open from c-4 thru c-7, opened up my spinal cord and removed most of the tumor.  The good news is that is was benign. The bad new is that I'm a quadriplegic now. (incomplete) Which means I can move my arms and legs, just can't feel them anymore. Only have use of a couple fingers on each hand and can feel part of my right foot.confuse

Soooo after all that I'm a slow mechanic and not much with manual trans cars.  However I refuse to give up and ain't changing a thing on the car yet.  Put a new clutch in last year and plan on getting all the good out of it before I go automatic. smile

I wondered why you were not around here for a while. Welcome back I love your determination and never give up spirit!! Thanks for letting us here know about your situation.

Keep on rowing those gears!

Thanks for the prayers and kind words. I really consider myself fortunate. I have great friends and family in my support network. I also thank God every day for what I consider to be a miracle.  smile

So sorry to hear about this Mike but glad to hear the tumor was benign. Is there any chance you'll regain feeling again?
