Well for those that know me from the “Old Site” I will report that I have not been picking at all. Yep, herniated a disc in my neck last fall and entire arm from shoulder to fingers fell asleep. Was laid up in bed for about 2 months over the winter…was absolutely miserable.
MRI then Dr’s said “surgery now”. Decided to attempt the physical therapy part and although it got me back on my feet and alleviated most of the problem my thumb and fingers fall asleep in about 5 minutes when I use them for things like fretting, typing, etc. …I’ve maybe put in 10 hours in the guitar in 10 months.
Just figured I’d shout out and let some of you guys know that I am still alive. I am gonna limp along until winter and am then going in for surgery. They have to go through my throat to fix herniation. Hopefully will be back up and picking by late winter/early spring.
