A post from Vixen’s daughter

Hi, all. This is Shannon (AKA Nannygoat), Vixen’s daughter. She called me @ 11:40 tonight because it is “very important” to update her peeps on the goings on for the next few days. So, I am up now giving an update. Teehee.

We made it home at about 11:30 last night from our trip. This morning, she woke up with excruciating back pain (this back thing has been going on for a while) but, she couldn’t take it anymore so she had my dad (I forgot my mom’s super-secret name for him…Oh wait, Mr. Vix was that it?) I dunno…moving on. She had Mr. Vix take her to the ER this morning.

They gave her an MRI and decided she needed surgery. When I asked my mom what the surgery was for she mumbled Dr. type lingo at me which to me was just as bad as listening to my dad rattle on about radiator caps and fuel injectors. She said needed bilateral L4-5 partial Laminectomy & a L4 L5 Discectomy

ENGLISH VERSION: She has a Herniated Disc.

She’s been admitted and her surgery will start a 7:30 am.  She will be in the hospital for about 3 days. I will try to keep you posted! Wish her well and leave her lots of nice comments to come home to, please!

  1. Ben

    Good luck! I’ll be thinking of you. I know that this is totally not what you needed, but I hope at least the pain goes away. You know, after the surgery. *sigh* Just get better soon, ok?

    D had that surgery when he was younger. He says the pain relief was instantaneous.

    Tell your Mom that I’ll catch her next time I’m in town.

  6. Oh Vixen! I’m so sorry you have to have surgery on your back but I’m praying right now that the surgeons will do a good job and fix things up well! I’ll also pray that your recovery will go well. If I lived way down south in California I’d bring you a meal during your recovery time at home :0)
    Love your daughter’s post btw…I’m the same way with technical lingo…

  12. Someone twittered me asking how the surgery went and I had no idea what she was talking about until I came over here and realized there are TWO Nannygoats in the blogosphere. Anyway, @moburns67 from One Ping Only says to say that they are thinking of Vixen and wishing her well!
