Sherry’s Surgery

On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, November 23, Sherry was given some scary news from her orthopedic surgeon. Her C4 & C5 vertebrae are not aligned, her C4 is 50% ahead of her C5, and it’s progressing. Faced with the options of surgery, paralysis or death she chose surgery.

Her surgery is scheduled for 11:45 am on Thursday, December 2, at Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, MD. Dr. Blam is her surgeon. The hope is that after one or two days in the hospital, she will be coming home. Dr. Blam prefers to send her home hoping that she will move more than she would have had the opportunity to in a nursing home.

Recovery is expected to take about six weeks and she will have to wear a cervical collar.
