Another Update...

Today I had my appointment at Hughston Clinic regarding my hands. The specialist there administered three separate tests and those tests revealed several different issues that are resulting in nerve damage. In his words, "You've got a lot of stuff going on." Another group of doctors will evaluate the tests, but according to the doctor I met with today, I will most likely be facing another surgery.

Here's the good news--I am part of a small percentage of people whose ulnar and median nerve take an unusual route down my arms (there is a specific name for it that I can't recall). That is good news, because it may result in less long term damage to the nerves (not getting feeling back in my hands), or it may provide an alternative re-routing of the median and ulnar nerve. Hughston Clinic will let me know the next step tomorrow or Wednesday.

Well, there you have it. Thank you for the prayers!
