Uncle John Oh my aching back

Posted on April 12, 2017 at 5:40pm 37 Comments

Just an update on John's ongoing back problems

I called John today after noticing he wasn't active in the past few days on the Nation or FB

Sorry to say his back problems seem to be worse  He ended up in the emergency room last night with pain and the inability to stand or move  He is back home although still not all that well  He is hoping to see his family Doc for advice on the next step to recovery

He can't sit or stand for any length of time  So emails or FB messages…
