As most of you know, Greg has been down with some serious nerve damage for the last 3 weeks. He is getting better, but it has been slow, and he has a long ways to go yet. Freakishly.....last Tuesday, I began to notice what at first was mild discomfort in my lower right back. Within 24 hours though, it became quite painful, and then I noticed my entire right hip and thigh were numb. And by day two, the pain was really bad. I could NOT believe that I too was having nerve pain like Greg? And how??? I didn't recall doing any one thing that hurt my back. I do remember giving Noah a "horsey" ride on my legs, but it didn't hurt. At least not at the time. I went ahead and made myself a Dr. appointment for yesterday afternoon. If you know me, you know I was hurting, because I don't go to the doctors unless I absolutely MUST! By the time I went to the doctor's office, I was in a world of hurt! I am so glad I went. She felt that the spine and discs were okay, but that I had a badly pulled and inflamed muscle that was pressing on a nerve. She gave me 5 scrips, 3 for my back, and two for my skin. She said it would be a good 30 days until I was back to myself. I go back in two weeks and will then probably start some PT. Our house looks like a couple of elderly and infirm live here.
I am a goer, a mover, a doer. I don't "do" laying around, taking it easy. It just isn't me. I hate it. I hate to sit still. I hate to be stuck in the house all day. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it! I'm not sick!!! It is beautiful outside! I want to go work in the yard, or walk around Sam's Club, or drive out to Cajalco and go shopping! I want to talk about where we can go out to dinner, and then go see a movie!!!
Waaaaaaaaa!!!!!! I don't like this!!!!!
