Today Saturday September 10th Tom was taken by ambulance to Piedmont hospital. He has been having problems with his neck for over a year. In one week he went from being able to walk and feed himself to walking with a walker not being able to use his hands. Friday we saw a neuro surgeon and Saturday we had to call an ambulance.
The surgeon said he would operate on Sunday instead of Thursday since it's not good to keep him in a bed till Thursday.
His spinal cord is being pinched as well as some other things going on with the vertebrae.
This is a nutshell. Dr. said outcome should be at least back to where he was before neck problem. Everyone is different. Again nutshell.
