He is a patient at the Dallas VA Hospital. Great medical treatment and respect to boot. He is battling an infection in his neck where he had an old cervical fusion. Tests were done to determine if he had an infection, he does, and today's & yesterday's bone scans were to determine if the infection is in the bones. He has a steel plate c2-c7 where they fused his vertabrae. If bone proves to be infected, then he will have to have surgery to remove the plate because bone will not heal with hardware in it. The good side is he has had the fusion long enough that the bones have fused and the plate will be no longer needed. The nuclear injection he received was to highlight the area in question for the tests to be administered. Last week they drew a large amount of blood and extracted the white cells and bombarded them with nuclear stuff and reinjected them into his body for a scan. Yesterday they injected him with some more to scan the bones. I really glow in the dark and the radium dial on his watch is sure bright. He hopes to get and drive his Redline before surgery because he will not be able to for awhile afterwards.


He didn't want to post this, but I coerced him into allowing me the honor of posting it.

ERNEST, from all of us, we sincerely wish you well. We welcome you to the Kappa community and hope your ownership begins REAL soon!


Ernest, I can't believe I had to hear this from Gizmo. But thought I would pass on the info !!!

Thanks for the update

Yup, we're all pulling for Ernest.
Years ago, I had a chance to meet some of the folks at the Dallas VA. It is one of the best in the country. No doubt about that.

Even though I am relatively new here, Ernest has always answered my ????'s. I thought of him last Thursday, thinking he was going to have his scan on Friday. Thanks Deluke for sharing with us. My prayers are with you and your family, Ernest. After waiting so long for your R/L, I can't believe you will have to wait again. But your health is so important and Mayhem will be waiting for you. I imagine your excitement to get your baby this week. I'm so jealous!

Giddy up GO!

Keep the faith Earnest....I too had cervical surgery about 6 years ago and so far I'm fine. I will be watching your progression and before you know it, you'll be blasting down the freeway in that RL. Wish mine was being delivered.

Good luck and may God bless.:angel:

Ernest,

Our prayers are with you. Sounds like you're getting great care. I think everything's going to work out just fine. Your friends will help you get through this. If not, the REDLINE surely will (lol)!

And hey, its too damn hot to do much anything in Arlington right now. Soon you'll be playing around in your Sky(s) and it'll be well UNDER 100-- degrees!

God bless!
