Susan’s Medical

steve-susan-hawaii-small-sample.jpg Thanks for all the comments and phone calls and email about our situation here.  I really haven’t had time to blog but wanted to post an update.  Susan is doing real well and here face will heal perfectly I believe.  She is currently experiencing some swelling from bruising of her spinal cord, but no brake or fractures.  She is in the hospital receiving steroids for a couple of days to reduce the swelling.  She previously had some calcification of her spine and that causes a narrowing of the spinal cord column.  She has known that someday she will probably need surgery to relive and this is another wake up call in that direction, but they want the trauma from the current accident to heal first.


For those of  you that don’t know the story, she fell about 10:30 PM Sunday in our home and her face took the brunt of the damage when it hit the corner/edge of the door at the door jam when she fell with an associated whiplash type of situation. 

She is experiencing the “feeling” of burnt hands from the pressure on her spinal cord.  The doctor said that I could take a couple of months to go away, but the good new is that it will.  Her spirits are great and she has no pain from the fall, but I suppose you wouldn’t either if you were taking what they are giving her.  Thanks so much for you love, concern and prayers.  Please continue to pray for the pressure on her spinal cord to abate. We think she will come home tomorrow or Thursday.  As for me my heart situation isn’t all that bad, just a management issue right now.     ………..stevereenie

 UPDATE  (5/2/07):  I brought Susan home from the hospital today.  She is doing well and resting.  It will be a bit for all the booboos totally abate, but they will.  We are currently planning on heading to our southern headquarters for about 6 weeks on the 14th………..stevereenie

UPDATE  (5/4/07):  Susan continues to improve.  She is experiencing some numbness on the skin of her right leg, but the Neurosurgeon assures this will pass in 6-7 weeks.  The burning sensation of her hands is improving and she had a lower front tooth capped today.  In short she seems to be better with each passing hour.  Thanks for all your inquiries, concerns and prayers. ……………stevereenie

    I am so glad to hear that! Also, about the heart situation… don’t sell yourself short o.k? I know sometimes you don’t want to be a worry wart but still you need to be agressive. Sorry, that’s the protective daughter in me talking:)

    Please give my best to Susan. I hope that you are holding up as well as possible through all of this – it cannot be anything but horrible to see your beloved wife in such pain. My thoughts are with all of you (yes, you too, Zabs).

    Please keep us updated.

    Thanks so much for the update. It is encouraging to know that Susan is doing better. I hope that both of you are able to get some rest and feel better soon.

    MZ, Misi, theobromophile, wytammic, Kristy C:

    Thanks so much for the warm comments, encouragment and prayers. I ran home from the hospital for a couple of hours to take care of a few matters, switch laundry from washer to dryer and grab some chow. Susan is doing great but, as expected, still haveing discomfort with her hands due to the pressure on spinal cord. The Nuero Surgeon says it “will” get better and that is totally comforting. Between her pain meds it really is painful and she can’t touch anything. So we are praying for that item. Once again, thanks for the kind words………….stevereenie
