Mark contacted me concerning another opinion he had gotten from a different spinal surgeon. He said they had taken him off his heart medication so they could give him spinal injections, trying to pinpoint the area. Then possibley surgery. He’s in a lot of pain but continues to work. He has moved in with his father so he would have a 20 minute drive to work as opposed to a 2 hour drive as per his usual drive. He says it is agony for him to drive a car. Hence the move. He thanks everyone for the well wishing and prayers and of course wishes every one else well and offers his prayers to all. What a guy. We should all have more of this mans guts and will. God Bless Him. Mike

Thanks all the poor guys in agon, I don’t know why he continues to work, he says its because he has no choice, he’s on salary, thats why he went to this other Dr. hopeing he would put him off work. They have him on non narcotic pain killers that I know from excperience don’t affect nerve pain. Which he is suffering from. mike
