The Next procedure for Alex' back.

As we posted before, my back pains have kicked up quite a bit.  For my extreme back pain,I have been undergoing a series of Spinal Surgical Procedures, in the hopes that the p will be reduced significantly.

What Now?

Tomorrow, Wednesday the 10th of October, it's the same procedure as last time, something called Radio Frequency Ablation, or RFA, which is a procedure used to reduce pain. An electrical current produced by a radio wave is used to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area, by disconnecting the pain signals from travelling up the spinal column to the brain. It's as if there was a bridge which got washed out.

Like the last three procedures, they will put me to sleep for the duration, and wake me when they're finished.  Truly, I wouldn't have it any other way.  It's kind of like a short power nap. They give me a minute to say a few quick prayers to Hale, White Feather, and Pink Cloud, along With Ellen and Winn, so that I am calm as possible while going under.

 

So once again, please ask your Divine Spirit Teachers and Guides to send Strong Prayers my way.  Prayers to wrap me in a healing blue blanket and to guide the specialist's hands and instruments to perform the procedure as perfectly as possible. The doctor, Dr. Joseph, will be using fluoroscopy to locate the exact spots into which he will use the implements to deliver the RFA.

 

Please also wrap Eliza in a blanket of calm comfort, as she waits for me to come out of anesthesia, and the procedure.

 

And as always, may your Good Deeds be returned to you, many-fold.  Thank you all, very much!
