Health Update Part III

Posted by Mark on January 29, 2005

Currently taking lots of pain meds, and still taking all my asthma meds as well.

The pain meds are the only reason I can sit at the computer for a few minutes to blog. The MDs are conferring on how to proceed. Looks like I’ve got disc fragments compressing a nerve, but the surgery may complicate the asthma. Any cortisone shots would aggravate glaucoma which has returned due to high doses of steroids related to the asthma. Sigh.

May have surgery within the next week or so. Hope so, as this is giving a whole new meaning to the phrase ” pain in the a**.” Blogging continues to be intermittent at best, due to not being able to sit for long. Again, thanks for the prayers and support. It is greatly appreciated.

A Great Consumer Advocate Site

Posted by Mark on January 29, 2005

Rip Off Report .com is the site to go to for information on companies and shady recruiting practices. Plug a company in to the search bar, and look at what folks say about it. Fortunately, the company I work for isnt’ listed. Whew!

Hubble Trouble: A Very Bad Decision from the Bush Administration

Posted by Mark on January 29, 2005

No mission in recent years has been as successful as the Hubble Space Telescope. Letting Hubble die would be a terrible decision on the part of President Bush and NASA. Let’s hope someone can get the money from private sources to save this incredible instrument of science.
