Just an update on John's ongoing back problems

I called John today after noticing he wasn't active in the past few days on the Nation or FB

Sorry to say his back problems seem to be worse  He ended up in the emergency room last night with pain and the inability to stand or move  He is back home although still not all that well  He is hoping to see his family Doc for advice on the next step to recovery

He can't sit or stand for any length of time  So emails or FB messages will go unanswered for a few days at least   

Let's all hope for his speedy recovery and keep him in our prayers

ha ha, Daryl, on that movie/ short story- I liked both, but will follow your advice. that busted coccyx sounds hurtful!

Keep at it uncle, i've had a broken coccyx before, it really restricts all kinds of movement, not much you can do without being reminded sharply, hope they can reduce the cysts quickly, PS, stay away from mountains with a broke back

much appreciated, Derek.

Glad to hear there are treatment options. Will continue to pray for positive results.

Updates: This Tarlov's cysts (on my tailbone) is somewhat rare. Just back from the neurologist. Plan: oral steroids then a steroid injection in the spine -- hope for next week. I continue to be thankful for small improvement and prayers and good wishes.

If the plan above fails, Linda will take me to the Mayo Clinic.

Gary, I wish I could have been there too.

Dang!   I've been out of the loop!  Met a couple of good builders in last weekend's Springfield MO 4-State Guitar Show, and they mentioned Uncle John's aching back.  So sorry to hear this; but very glad to hear that his recovery is making progress.  Prayers for healing, Unc!

big thanks to Paul and Micheal. It is slow, but I am improving. Can walk a bit more each day- now up to 3 min. at a time, Still can not sit very long. I believe the prayers and good wishes help.
