Reason For My Absence

Hey All -

Sorry about the lack of posts - I'm afraid it is a situation that may persist for a little while.

2 years ago (approx) I had a herniated and 2 bulging discs fixed in my back - on Wednesday - it started feeling like it did exactly then - I'm still waiting to get into to see the neuro surgeon who did the surgery to let me know what is up - but sitting in a computer chair is not where I want to be. I am doing this from work right now - where I have no choice - but at home - its the recliner for me. So I'm still here reading (Sun - Wed 1-midnight) but other than that - I'm nowhere near a computer until it stopps hurting. Take care -

Hopefully I'll be back up and writing sooner than later.

That really sucks. I feel your pain. I have a herniated disk that bothers me every so often. It was bad for awhile then after some predisone it felt much better so I didn't need surgery. I hope the doctors can help you, I know it's really tough to live with.

I hope it doesn't turn into something serious. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the doctors have good news for you.

Steve, two things...
1st. I got my MRI results yesterday. Three bulging discs, two herniated, apparantley one is pushing on my spinal chord, hence the pain and lack of mobility. I am told I cannot swing a bat or throw a ball or go into a mosh pit. I am sad.
2nd. I read your comment on White Sox cards... When I was a youngster in the Sox organization, I looked up to guys I saw in camp like Ventura and Guillen and collected them, hoping I would play with them. Never did. I didn't have any doubles, I just collected one of everything. I had promised them to White Sox cards months ago, finally sent them his way. If I come across any, especially of him as a met, they are yours...Gotta go with the team hierarchy on this. Cheers! Hope your back is being quiet...
