More Prayers Needed for Moose
Sat., Jul. 25. 2015 5:05pm EDT
It's been a couple months since we gave you an update from Bill "Moose" Rieger, our former drummer and current occasional guest guitarist.
As you may recall, he had a pinched nerve that sent pain and numbness down his neck, through his shoulder, down his arm and through his left hand and top two fingers. Here's his latest report:The meds they have me on continue to alleviate the pain but not the discomfort. The doctor thinks I'm a candidate for a surgical correction of the bone spurs on my vertebrae and the herniated and bulging disks.
I decided to give another less-invasive option a shot first. They are giving me an epidural. They will drill through my spine, insert the epidural needle and inject the medicine into my spinal cord. If that fixes it I won't have to go in for the surgery.
Thanks again for all your prayers.Please join us in praying for a full, speedy recovery for the man called Moose.
