2nd…. Big Daddy hurt his back. Well… not usually a big deal but when he had a rupture of 9.5 mm in 2004 and had surgery to fix it then deployed for 18+ months in 2005 and then re-ruptured it in 2008. When he did his last MRI it was the same disc and its 8.5mm ruptured this time… and he deployed without surgery. Needless to say any back twinge and I get panic-y. I know that another surgery will happen at some point but preferably not when he is IN COUNTRY. Yes, I know that they won’t do surgery there… they will send him home to be done here. Sadly I don’t trust the VA with a surgery like this. I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for and it’s FREE! Sorry. I am sure the VA is great for some things but not this… this is his back. I want a husband that can run and dance…that can ride bikes with his daughter and future kids. So all this gets to be too much.
