We may be possiably going to one income. By dh back has been really bothering him in the last 6 weeks. Since he has been working at the age of 17 or 18 he has been working in construction. That is all that he knows. Well in the last 6 weeks when he comes home when he sits down it seems like he just becomes stiff. It even hurts when he trys to walk at frist. He is afarid that he might have to have back surgery. Which we have no medical insureance nor have the money for right now. He has had only one surgery in his life. That was for carpol tunnel. He had both wrist done at the same time. He thinks that he may be out for atleast two weeks. He has seen what my dm has gone through. Because she has had two back surgeries in a year. The last time that she had it done she had to be on permant disability. Just because how much damage was done to her back. She can not stand or sit for long periords of time. Plus she has lost some nerve damage to her lower back. To the point that it has affected how high she can raise her arms when it is cold outside. WHen that happens she can't raise them at all. I know that amy surgery can be scary. I have had 3 majore and 1 minor. He has mentiones that he might have to have back surgery several times. No matter what he has tried it hasn't worked. He still come home in pain. I can see it in his face. :spam: :nrant: :yikes: Sorry for the rant. The only reason that I think that he is still working is because we need the money. But I don't what to tell him. I kinda off feel like a lose of words. I guess because I thought in the back of my mind that he is supposed to be the strong one and not get sick.
