    ATLANTA -- In a decorated career in the boxing ring, Paul Williams picked up three belts and the nickname, "The Punisher." Now, Williams has a bigger fight ahead.

    After a Sunday morning motorcycle crash near Atlanta, Williams is likely paralyzed from the waist down.

    Manager George Peterson told News 12 that he's in the hospital with a surgery scheduled for Wednesday. That surgery will help to stabilize the healthy upper half of his spine by putting a protective wall around it.

    I made it out with just this tiny cut.

    I made it out of surgery ok. It took about an hour longer than they expected, because there was so much to clean up, mostly bits of disc material. 

    I spent the next two days in the hospital. The fun started right when I woke up. I jumped awake and grabbed the nurse's arm so hard that I almost pulled her in the bed with me. This startled her a bit and she gave out a bit of a scream. 

    MRI - Things are only looking worse now.

    I made it to back to the hospital, the same place where I had to go to the emergency room. The same place no one wanted to do an MRI on me, because I wasn't hurt bad enough? But here I am, back again.  MRI is always a fun experience, slid into the tunnel that feels the way a coffin must. I just close my eyes and listen to the loud buzzing and clicking.

    I remember when discs were CD discs or disk drives. Now discs are ruining my life.

    After I got out of the emergency room, I got sent to a few doctors for follow up to my back injury. I got sent to a pain specialist & orthopedic surgeon. The pain guy just wanted to pump me up with cortisone and crap. I was over that, but he did take this crazy x-ray of my discs.
