(19:51:48) My Mom: Took Dad to the Doc on Wed. to find out what he recommends for the pain in his shoulder, arm, and fingers. He showed us the MRI. Dad has a bulging disc that is pinching the nerve and it's pretty bad. He said they sometimes heal themselves, but that since Dad has been bothered by this since February and has had therapy and it hasn't gotten better, he recommended surgery. Dad agreed. So now we're waiting for the surgery date. He said they couldn't do it for at least 2 weeks.
