Non CCIE-related = Disc Prolapse

Not much to write about but I am still reading Cisco Press's CCIE Routing and Switching Exam Certification Guide 3rd edition. There are already a few stuff that I have forgotten even though passing my CCNP was not so long ago. It tells you how forgetful the human mind is sometimes or maybe it's just me ;-).

I have added a few more blogs to my blog roll so I am sure not to forget to visit them ;-).

I do have some bad news. My disc prolapse problem has returned after the pain was gone for the last 3 years making me think that perhaps I got 'cured' (note the quotes). But it seem that it has caught up with me. I used to have this problem way back in 2005 but during that time I had a gigantic dose of nerve reliever (as the doctors called it) to relax my nerve and hence I was not in pain until two days ago. The pain was unbearable! For two days until today, I was unable to pass motion comfortably and to make matters worse, I could not sit in front of the computer for more than 10 minutes so I had to take 5-minutes intervals in-between. I will be visiting a specialist this Friday and perhaps I might have to go for surgery so if you don't see me updating my blog for quite some time (a month or more) you can be certain that I am in a hospital bed playing tic-tac-toe with the cute nurses.

Man I hope you don't need surgery, but I also don't want you to be in pain. Set up a posting system via text messages so you can keep us updated. BTW- its been long overdue but you are now on my blogroll!

Heh thanks man. Yeah it's pretty painful at times especially when you get up from bed. I'll definitely think of a way to keep in touch with the community (blogging through SonyEricsson's mobile blog seems to be an option).
