Last Friday I visited a specialist about my back. The scans show that I have another slipped disk, but this time it’s at a different location which is much more difficult to access, with a high risk of serious damage to nerves.
There is no surgeon up here who is willing to do this risky operation, so they have referred my case to Stockholm, in the hope that someone there will be willing to do it.
If no one is willing to do it, then I will just be given medicine to control the pain and this will mean that I will most likely not be able to work again and it will mean an end to my days out in the forest and the wilderness.
I am unlikely to hear from Stockholm before August, so it is going to be a looooooonnnnggg summer!!
The temperature over the last few days has been between 20 and 26 degrees, all the snow has now melted. Myself and Teres are getting married next Monday, here at our house, in the garden, but unfortunately the weather is due to change to 10 degrees and rain.
At least we have friends and family arriving from England on Thursday which is something to look forward too.
