Och, I knew it was bad news when the Surgeon looked me in the eye and said 'This is complicated...' - and so it was.
I'm home now and a brief synopsis is this - He thinks he can save my arm but it's 50/50. He's going to relocate the Ulnar nerve completely but it may not work. So the operation on my arm is imminent (I've to wait for the phone call) - and even if it does work I then have to have my spine operated on as it seems that's where the problem started - there's a bundle of nerves trapped in there somewhere and it's easy to understand why - I have an extra vertebrae, one too many (maybe that's why I'm so tall lol?).
Anyway - I'm off to bed now - good news is I'm going to bed with my splint and brace on the arm - which means I can type in the morning and finish the Blackford Bertie story when I wake up :) The bad news is I might get out of bed late as there's so much Velcro on the splint and brace that I get stuck to the blankets and it takes a while to extract myself lol...
Love to you all! And thank you all for your kind wishes - speak to you in the morning!
