149/365: Spinal Surgery

I was getting up from the couch Wednesday evening and couldn’t move my left leg or apply any pressure. After going to the ER I found out I needed emergency spinal surgery.  It was due to an old severely ruptured disc that had scar tissue intertwined within the nerves. I had never had any back pain or knew it was there. From what I understand, it reruptured Wednesday.

This was my friend, pain control pump, after surgery. When the green light would flash I was able to have added relief.
