I've going back & forth to St Joe for the last few days! Last Thursday morning, the wife didn't feel good, tried to talk her into going to St Joe ER, but no. She had to go to our regular Dr first, ended up being 3 in the afternoon before the Dr could see her. Checked her over & told her she needed more tests done! We've given up on our local ER unless it's a dire emergency, so we headed for St Joe. She got into the ER at 6 pm, ER Dr told her she had a urinary tract infection & was going to send her home. We insisted on more tests, so he had her in for a CT scan, intestinal blockage! I got home & hit the recliner at 3 am Friday, woke up at 5 am & headed back to SJ. She was released from the hospital Saturday afternoon without having to have surgery & is OK with it now!
Left home at 4:20 this morning for the 1-1/2 hour trip to St Joe! Wife had neck surgery at 8 am, needed to be there by 6. Surgery went well & she was doing well when I left around 2 pm. Three vertebra fused together, discs were pinching the spinal fluids off. She wasn't in any pain, but a "preventive" surgery!
This "neurosurgeon" & his crew were one of the best we've seen at explanations & told us this was the most common surgery they do!
