    Anyone have a spine they're not using? :)

    Any of you present at Photostock know of the back pain ordeal that took its toll on me and parts of the schedule this year. Not normally one to complain much (especially knowing others facing much larger challenges), I figured I'd spare folks further talk of the subject. However, I've had so many kind emails, calls, etc that I felt I should let people know what's been going on.

    Well... I gave it the good fight, but after a couple runs to Emergency, MRI's and a crazy amount of pain killers, it's become painfully (no pun intended) obvious that something else needed to be done. It seems there is a fragment of a herniated disc that broke off and is now floating around in there playing havoc with my spinal cord and the nerves connecting it to my left leg. So, here I am again on my back in my hospital room while awaiting surgery in the morning. I've got a great neurosurgeon who assures me it is a common operation and that I should be almost as good as new in a week or so. From my current perspective it is hard to believe, but with any luck I'll finally be on the mend by this time tomorrow.

    Anyway... The outpouring of support, good wishes, and just plain kindness that has come my way this past month has been.. well, wonderful and I hope you'll all forgive me for being lazy and using this post to thank you.

    Thanks to ALL of You!!

    Bill

    It did not look like the normal back spasm. Listen to your Doc and good luck.

    Best, Jim
