Mark Flanders is a "REAL" Pain in the Neck!

By
Real Estate Broker with Keller Williams West Sound Realty

Most of you know my trusty sidekick, Mark Flanders(aka "Buckwheat"). We're both Moderators for the ActiveRain Community, and currently maintain the Top 2 spots here in the State of Washington. We also jointly run our 'other' blogsite, www.SoundBiteBlog.com

 As many of you are aware, Mark has been noticeably absent from the Rain for the past several weeks. Many years ago, he was involved in a rather substantial auto accident that affected his neck. Every once in a while, this neck injury acts up, but it usually subsides in short order. A couple weeks ago, it flared up again, but this time, it lingered, and eventually became acutely painful. Mark went in for an MRI, but he was in such pain, he couldn't lie down long enough for the procedure. Finally, they were able to medicate him enough to do the MRI.

Yesterday, Mark went to see a specialist in Seattle. The Doctor took one look at the film and told Mark he would perform surgery THAT day. Evidently, had his condition continued, there was a good chance Mark would have been paralyzed!

So, Mark had surgery yesterday. Everything went fine. He is supposed to be released either today or tomorrow, and will be out convalescing for another 2 weeks.

I thought it would be really cool if everyone (and I mean EVERYONE!) would send him a "Get Well" card so when he gets back to his office, the mountain of love mail from the 'Rain' would be there to greet him.

His address is:

Mark Flanders, Olympic Northwest Mortgage

1480 NW Sid Uhinck Dr., Ste. 200, Silverdale, WA 98383

Please help spread the word and let Mark know how much we care and miss him! Thanks!

Rich - Flat Mark aka "Buckwheat" is recuperating here in Clearwater Florida - he thought the sunshine and oranges would do him good. i'll report on your advertures in the Flat Group soon. I also arranged for him to see the best chiropractor around Clearwater, Dr Greg Dokka of Clearwater Spine and Rehabilitaiton for auto accidents. I've had 3 and he's been a huge help.  Wanted to give you an update.

Have no idea where I've been but suddenly read this from Pat's blog and will send my card a mite late...perhaps mine will be read now since enough time has gone by to sift through all the others that arrived on time. Hope, Mark is doing fine and recovering beautifully!
