Dustin had to use his cane today; the first time in over a year.  We told people it was because of the cold temps last night making his back stiff and throwing off his balance.  He is going to get a hold of his neurosurgeon though; he tried touching his nose with his eyes shut and kept missing.  That on top of the migraines, leg spasms and weakness, and his impaired balance is not a good sign.  We are hoping he hasn't developed a cyst on his spine or anything.  We'll know more after he talks to Dr. Ryan, I guess.  Please keep us in your prayers.

Thanks.  He's getting an MRI today to check for slippage, cyst, stroke, etc.  The symptoms seem to be coming on more quickly than last time.  So we have told his parents and mine that he may go back to what he was like before the surgery, next we are going to have to tell our friends, church members, etc.  He also finds the numbness the biggest problem.  Since it affects his legs and hands most, it limits him in chasing after our daughter and working on the computer, the two things he does most often.  But, we won't know if anything can be done until the MRI results come back.  He's going to be all loopy afterwards lol.  They are doing with anf without contrast, and the contrast dye they have to use makes him act like he is high or something, so the afternoon will be very interesting.
