Saturday at CRG with Robert and Nahomi
Got the orange route using a hand jam-read the tape, crack was for foot only-worked out move w/o hand jam-will try to put it together next time.

Tuesday: Pain specialist found herniated disk at L2 and L3, he knew to look their because of the location of my numbness, pain (missed by whoever read my MRI the first time). He said back injury is like a broken leg; you cast it, rest it, then start rehab. For the back he sold me a back brace (for temporary use -kind of like a cast on a broken leg), told me to rest it, get the shots, then rehab. He said to think about what got me to this point and avoid it.

Wednesday: First shot; not bad. Time will tell if it works. Looks like easy street for me until I finish with the 3 shots (one every 2 weeks).

Wednesday: Second shot; I estimated the first shot to be 30% effective. Doc was not happy with that.

Hi Norm - How is the rehab going? Have you been able to do anything? I've been thinking about you. I hope you are getting better.

Re: The Barn
Thanks Tim: The second shot has done a lot better than the first. Most of the time, all the numbness and pain is gone. If its totally gone in another week and a half, I won't need the third shot. Not sure when I can start working out again; hopefully soon after that.
