super freaky number 2- one of the reasons we have to time to post today is we are on our way to the hospital for minor procedure to relieve the pain of the pinched discs in our neck. it involves a long needle injecting things directly into our spinal column, so we are super-freaking out about that as well.. (it's a called a cervical epidural, and though it sounds pregnancy related, it's not- m21 is well past his child-bearing years. ;-) and yes, we know, women have epidurals all the time during childbirth, so no big whoop. we also know that women handle this kind of thing with far more bravery then men, so it is indeed a big whoop for this big sissy. this is our second one and we are still freaked out by it).
