"If No News Is Good News" - Bob Wills, 1965

John had his neck x-rayed on Thursday afternoon, and we've heard nothing at all from the consultant since then. Given how thorough he (the consultant) is, we're assuming that no news is good news and that the x-ray looks fine.

John had a period of some significant pain yesterday afternoon. But we're wondering if he was at a weird angle while watching TV, maybe. But otherwise, he's only been uncomfortable rather than in severe pain. And I'm proud of him for being upbeat most of the weekend.

Maybe we were just being a little impatient about the time his recovery from the neurosurgery would take? We certainly hope that's the case.

He'll be going in to see the consultant and the physical therapists, for the usual post-surgical followup appointment, on the 13th of February. And if the consultant is right, John could start seeing some improvement between now and then.

I'll keep you posted! Meanwhile, John is most appreciative of all of the good wishes!

I hope that the x-ray comes back fine. Please give my warmest regards to John.

An alternate title for this series: "The Waiting is the Hardest Part"..waiting to feel better, waiting to hear the doctor's response. Tsk. Hang in there, John (are you allowed to rinse those pain pills down with a shot of something stronger with water?)

Signed...not a doctor
