Acute Trauma C-Spine

My mom passed away on July 4 2012, she went into surgery for her neck, I was wondering if someone could explain what the report says that I have.

Foramen magnum through C2-3 Level, there is quite marked left-sided facet dengerative change with moderate left foraminal stenosis and probable compression of exiting left C-4 nerve root. However, the disc is well maintained in height and central canal and right foramen are patent. At the C4-Level, the central canal is borderline narrowed however.

At C5-6, there is moderate disc space narrowing and quite marked and circumferntial disc bulge/osteophytosis. This results in sever central and bilateral foraminal stenosis and there is a small focus of high signal withing the spinal cord at this level, probably with slight focal atrophy of the cord at the upper C6level.

At the C6-7 level, there is also moderately severe central and bilateral foraminal stenosis, also primarily due to moderate disc bulge/osteophytosis.

C7-T1 and visualized upper thoacic spine are unremarkable.
Evidence of focal myelopathic change at C5-6
