I Have A Date Tomorrow

I have a date tomorrow, and yes, my husband is OK with this. Long read ahead, but it’s very important!! Please read.

My date is with a surgeon.

Tomorrow I will be having surgery on my neck. Finally. I have degenerative disc disease along with bone spurs & my C3-7 discs are gone, basically. The degeneration of the discs and resulting compression of the vertebra has caused my spinal cord to be pinched/bruised in this area. They also told me that my bones are already starting to fuse themselves together. I will be in the hospital overnight, and wearing a collar for 6-8 weeks 24/7 except for eating and showering. Soft foods for a couple weeks, no lifting over 10 pounds…I’m very grateful that BikerMan knows how to braid and take care of my hair. I’m going to need major help with it these next couple months. Thank you in advance baby. The Dr. has requested that I have two braids on each side of my head and that the braids be made into a bun on each side. In other words, I’ll be rolling into surgery rocking some princess leia braided buns lol. I was going to wear a single braid ~ they want it bound and out of the way for real. Leia braided buns it is then. This surgery is a blessing, I’ve been in tremendous pain, debilitating at times, in my neck for many years now. The past few months, I’ve noticed the pain changing, moving to my extremities and NOT responding to pain relief methods that has previously worked for years. I don’t like going under the knife but I need this surgery or my condition will only worsen over time. The longer I go without it, my spinal cord would be injured worse, and cause damage that cannot be undone. I should have had this done years ago, but I was a patient of a doctor that neglected the severity of my condition. Thank goodness I found a new RA Dr. that helped me with this on my first visit with her.  She ordered an MRI, gave me a muscle relaxer, and a topical gel that gave me relief. Previous Dr. never did ANYTHING to help me with my neck condition. Not even refer me to a Dr. that would help. But anyway…..I’m rid of him, and am in good capable hands now. That’s what matters. In my case, this condition is hereditary. From who I inherited this from I’ve no idea, my sister has this same condition and has had this same surgery, same levels before. I’ve been leaning on her a lot for advice and her experience. Also have a friend who had this surgery but just two levels. So I do have some folks around me to talk to about their experience, etc. All this being said, I’m nervous as hell. But….. I can’t wait to not feel this pain in my neck. I can’t wait for the day the muscles in my neck aren’t feeling like they have marbles in them. I can’t wait for the pain to not be there 24/7. I’m hopeful, but scared. lol Positive vibes, prayers everything accepted. My love to all, and see ya’ll on the flip side!

Here’s what’s going on…

First, THANK YOU for visiting LongHairDivas.Com, for years now, it has been my ‘home’ on the internet. I have changed the name of my subscription site to LeonasLongHair.Com … please allow me to explain why:

I need a change. Times change, people change…

When LHD was launched in May 2005 the concept of the site was to have a continual carousel of longhaired models from around the world and at first, it was working well and I had models shooting for me all the time. Now, well, it’s extremely difficult to find models. Pretty much it’s been just ME since 2008. Rayvn stopped shooting, and Dawn is intermittent with her availability. I’ve been thinking of making my site all about ME for years now, and originally when I left LongHairPortraits to go out on my own, LeonasLongHair was to be the site. It was my ex husbands idea to add the other girls, citing that I was in my late 30’s and couldn’t ‘do this forever’. Boy was he fucking wrong.

I want my site to be all about me from the name down to the content. LeonasLongHair has been an active domain for the past 15 years, I forwarded it to LHD, but now it is changed. My site is now LeonasLongHair.Com and I am SOOOOO excited!

Current members, nothing has changed. Just the name of the site. It’s still on the same server, has the same content (although some of the girls will be coming off), just the name has changed. Your log in is still the same. I have to get with Vicky Vette to get the cam page worked out; I tested it this morning and it’s prompting for a username and password. Go ahead and enter your username and password ~ it should get you into the cam room, should you want to view one of the live shows before the new link is in place. When the new link is in place you will not be prompted for a username and password to enter the cam area.

The new site will load slow at first, but the speed will pick up as the cache fills. I thank you in advance for your patience during this transition. My team is working in the background to make sure it’s going as seamlessly as possible. If you should happen to run into a problem let me know asap so I can forward it on to them.

All that being said….I thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and my site for all these years, and I’m looking forward to the new site and new look that will be coming with it. and as always: THANK YOU FOR LOVING LONG HAIR. IT TRULY IS A PLEASURE FOR ME TO SHARE MY LONGHAIR WITH YOU.

xoxoxo
