I noticed that one of my thorny backyard potted cactus's started blooming yesterday.
Today I had an MRI on my spine, and learned that I have a herniated disc between c6 and c7 vertabrae that has been the source of my back pain and arm numbness for the past two weeks. I will find out later this week whether I can use physical therapy to fix it, or whether I have to see a neuro-surgeon for it. I am really hoping for the physical therapy, although I anticipate a long road to being pain free. My posting is going to be light on the DIY's for awhile....expect to see more pics of plants and pets while I heal. Here is a pic I found on google of what my herniated disc looks like pushing on the nerve.
