Brea got a Berlin heart! I need a new spine.

Any of you following along with Brea's blog know that she has been given a chance at more time to wait for a donor heart to come available and to increase her strength. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she still has a long way to go, but she is a fighter. After she received her Berlin heart she decided she was tired of the hospital and was going home. That a girl Brea. Please keep checking in on Brea and her family. Unlike me her mom updates every day, http://www.babyjellybeans.com/web/do/site/photo?ID=187377&parent_id=175411 if you can help this family you will not reget it.
I have been having to deal with the very thing that lead us to adoption from China in the first place. They think that one of the lower discs in my back has herniated again and I may require surgery again to get back to my normal routine. I should know in a couple of days, after a discogram (sounds like something from Saturday Night Fever doesn't it) what course of action needs to be taken. Although I am not looking forward to the possibility of surgery, if it will reduce the amount of pain and get me up and moving again then lets get going.
If I do have surgery and am home recoveing afterwards for 10 to 12 weeks at least this blog will get updated more frequently. Lori has asked however that I don't update when my pain meds are at their peak. I believe the term was "drunk posting".
This is Glen, signing off from the recliner.
Good night sweet Brea, keep on fighting.
Glen

Oh Glen I am sorry, I had no idea you were going to have surgery. I hope everything goes well and listen to Lori. No posting while under the influence!
