Please keep Chantel in your thoughts and prayers. Since her surgery on Monday she has had some numbness in her right leg and they will be doing a myelogram (spelling!) this morning to see what the problem is. Her neurologist thinks the problem is swelling from the surgery, and may subside, but the myelogram this morning is dye injection along her spinal column to see if any nerves are being pinched or pressured as a result of the surgery. There is also a possibility that one of the screws broke. The test today will determine if any of the above are the case.
The myelogram is painful and she will have to lie completely motionless for about 24 hrs. Please continue to hope and pray for her as you can.
