Doctor Doctor


     From no doctors appointments to 3 doctor appointments in the space of 3 hours.  When I fall apart I really fall apart.

    I couldn't get into see my regular doctor until the 9th so she gave me some pain pills to see me through until then and refilled my lasix.  Then I go to see my lung doctor tomorrow about my asthma which has been acting up and to get pulmonary function tests again and next tuesday to Omaha to see a specialist.  All this on top of missing 2 nights of work.  Time to have a sale in my shop.

    I did call in at work.  I am now having spasms on top of the pain.  Please don't have let the disc's have ruptured.  I can't lay down, I can only seem to sit upright and stiff to get some relief.  Normally when my back gets like this I have noticed it seems to get better almost as fast as it got bad so I hope this still is true.  I have been lucky not having this pain for quite awhile so I forgot what it was like.  Now it's like, Oh Yah.... so this why I had the breast reduction, LOL.  How soon we forget.

   Well, time to watch Rick get supper ready, that's always fun.  Take care all.

Julie- i so hope your back pain goes away as quickly as it came. it is almost impossible to do all that heavy lifting with a bad back. and i LOVED your entry about the scale...i have the same problem with mine! i am looking for the good old fashioned kind...with the dial that moves instead of digital, but have not been able to find one. lol

Dear heart when you fall apart you do so piece by piece don't you? I know where your coming from with back pain, no fun, pain and oh yeah more pain. I had a disc in my lower back chipped in a beating I had. The disc itself remained intact, but the chip tends to float in the muscle in my back, every once in awhile it actually hits the nerve in my spine. Pain is not a word when that happens. I have heard horror stories of having the muscle in your back cut into so, the chip stays. I hope they are able to help relieve your pain and soon. Hmmm breast reduction for less weight on your back. Something I should definitely look into. Keeping you in my prayers on the smoke dear heart! (Hugs) Indigo
