many of you know that I just recovered from a severe Elbow ligaments tear recently and back to detail job & clinics & supposingly more hands on clinic but .........'then came Sally' (the movie) then came another ta da - slipped disc
Last thursday, while i was waiting at my dental, i turn to my right side and bend down to pick up my charger, the very next thing i heard was "crak" ......and an immense pain just came upon my back, that cause my ad reline rush...numb my whole body for seconds. after that shock, i struggle to stay straight. reached out to my bag, for "paragesic" a muscle relaxant medication and ponstan (pain killer). for the next hour, it was like as though my back torn apart.
Struggle to sit on the dentist chair, to complete my crowing. out of kindness, My dentist gave me some of her medication to suppress my pain further to relieved my pain. for the next few hours and all i ever remember it was the most painful moments of my life. Surpasses all other pain.
the very 1st thought that came in my mind was, the upcoming clinic that gonna to be held on sat will be affected. didn't worried much the severity of my condition but Simon from kuching is flying in today. I was sending out short messages while in pain to inform all my students that, the class will be postponed to another date.
I drove another 2 hours to complete my assignment and went to see my Orthopeadics at Pantai Cheras, Doc Jason Chin, The best i ever seen. put on Xray
i had a slipped disc on L4. and confined to a full rest.
A spinal disc herniation (prolapsus disci intervertebralis), informally and misleadingly called a "slipped disc", is a medical condition affecting the spine, in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring (annulus fibrosus) of an intervertebral disc(discus intervertebralis) allows the soft, central portion (nucleus pulposus) to bulge out. Tears are almost always postero-lateral in nature owing to the presence of the posterior longitudinal ligament in the spinal canal. This tear in the disc ring may result in the release of inflammatory chemical mediators which may directly cause severe pain, even in the absence of nerve root compression (see pathophysiology below). This is the rationale for the use of anti-inflammatory treatments for pain associated with disc herniation, protrusion, bulge, or disc tear.
It is normally a further development of a previously existing disc protrusion, a condition in which the outermost layers of the annulus fibrosus are still intact, but can bulge when the disc is under pressure.
I was questioning myself, i thought i rested enough for the past 4 months and upon recovery i just done a couple more detail on A Gti mk 5, Porsche Turbo, Gti mk 6, E90 325, BMW detailing clinic -there's a couple more waiting of E90, M3s, F10, Aston Martin, some E60.....audi
the very next question came in 'WHY'? As human we always ask why, why this? why that?
when our parent/bosses/superior says 'no', the very first question we raise to challenge the higher authority is WHY?
WHY? is the default question we will ask, whenever we are in a hopeless situation, I remember I asked many many many why's in my life... to whom have meet me personally would know my past, what I was make of (my call of detailing) the force behind my passion
but Why this time, why not happen later, when evening came, while my wife drove me home, i suddenly remember " i prayed that i will spend more time with our daughters' Ta Da....is this the answered prayer?????
I realised that very moment everything happend for a good reason, Simon came down and i arrange my partner Jack to groom him 1 to 1 from basic detailing. I have been at home since then ......spending time with my Maker & family, getting to know them all over again
Only last week I confess, that I miss seeing my children grows up, now I am playing Tea time with them. for the very 1st time, we played Uno togather yesterday & watch "the Blind side"
