I sent this, this morning but for some reason it didn't go through.
An Update on Melody Sanders Bosk husband -- not a good one.
An update... Rod broke the bottom part of his leg.(shin) Sat night while we were home for a short spell. It is a serious break that happened because he has been loosing strength in his lower body and he couldn't hold himself up when he went to stand. Today he
went in for an x-ray. We thought when we got the x-ray that he was just being sent to the hospitol for a cast, however that is not the case at all.
Because of the extent of the break he will need a full length rod put in from the knee down. The break happened because there is a lesion(tumor) on the bone that broke :-( this is not what we expected to hear.
The docters said he can have the surgery with high risk, or he would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. They asked him if he wanted to do that with the life he had left.
risk of the surgery isn't in the surgery itself, it is similier to the situation with his heart a couple of weeks ago. If they can't give him a spinal block then they will need to put him on a respirator and hopefully he will be able to come off of it in a short span of time. Unfortunatley with the length of time he will be in surgery poses the highest risk, as this surgery could last up to 3
They did a CT scan to see if the spine has any cancer tumors down where they need to do the spinal, if it does, then he will not be able to use it, and will need to be under general anesthetic (respirator) .
At this point Rod is in pretty low spirits with the loss of use with his legs already. It has come on very quickly and without much warning. We knew that eventually that this may happen, but thought there was a little more time then this. His numbness starts from the rib cage down, but he still has some feeling but no strength at
He is admitted into Vernon hospital right now, however the room at hospice is being kept for him for a few days, so Victoria and I are staying here so that we are closer to Rod. He may have to go to ICU after surgery because of the complications with his heart and lungs.
Surgery is slated for tomorrow, providing they can get him in early in the day so that they have a full staff
available in case they need help.
Please keep Rod in your prayers during this time, he is truly fighting for his life everyday and the battle just seems to get harder and harder for him.
