BASLOW'S DELICATE CONDITION
The MRI last Friday revealed a nerve pinched between a neck spur and a bulging disk. There was plenty of good news: no neural damage, the disk is intact, no surgery required. Baslow merely requires physical therapy, which he has already begun. He cannot stand or even sit for very long without experiencing a heightened level of pain. He cannot work at the keyboard for more than ten minutes. He will not be able to return to work for a week or (more likely) two.
