When I think about all that is riding on my appointment this week I can't help but hear: "This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope." So ~ my appointment with Second Opinion neuro-surgeon is tomorrow morning. I am not sure what my expectations are other than the desperately needed 2nd letter of recommendation to get the decompression done at TCI.
Anything else is frosting ~ but ~ I will have to do my happy dance (think hands raised high in the air, a grin from ear to ear on my face and spinning around in circles until I fall down ~ it's my classic happy dance) if the doctor believes me when I tell him that I also need the tethered cord surgery. My doc is not only a brain doc but spinal issues are also his specialty.
It would be awesome if he totally agreed and said that he could easily perform the TC surgery in a couple of weeks ~ as you can tell I am a dreamer ~ but I also believe in miracles.
