You Are My Only Hope

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.

Obi-Wan and you are a force to be reckoned with. May the force be with you! I'll hang out with my Droids and wait to hear....

You will be in my thoughts & prayers tomorrow. I wish I was as close as you are to finally getting the treatment we need. May the forces be with you.
