Just popping in here to say that there hasn't been much change for Mark in the last few days. He saw his doctor who suspects that he has a herniated disc. He ordered an MRI, but I wasn't able to get a date for that before April. Poor Mark is not sleeping really and is experiencing cramping in his legs. He cannot get comfortable and has mostly been alternating between sitting in bed and sitting in a chair right beside the bed.
We've been so grateful for the support from friends and family in the form of emails, phone calls, meals (why is a delivered meal such a comfort?), and advice. It really has helped to make ease the load a little.
