Hey all! Don't know how to say this, but I am down and out for the rest of the year from fishing, hunting, working, driving. I have an old injury in my left neck, arm and back. On oct 2 the pain got so bad I went to the ER for pain releaf. During the next couple of weeks I found out I have a few bulging disks and will need the disks removed and fused. The surgery is Nov 7. I have been out of work since 10-2 and am not expected to go back until mid Jan. Thank God for savings, I can afford the missed paychecks ( it is a workers comp, but they only pay about 40% of what i make.) So, please keep my wife and kids in your prayers, they need it the most to put up with me. The pain meds kind of keep me going. Shake- Thanks for the fishing trip a couple of weeks ago. I went to a follow up doctor appt that week and he took my truck and boat keys. What a way to end the year!
