Ok...The pain clinic called me and asked if I could come in earlier then my appointment was for. Here I am sitting in much pain...so, I said, " Well, sure!" :o) Very happy about that one! I went done there and got in as soon as I got there...YAY! :o) ;Heray for the Flag hold it high...; ....ok back on track now....! I told the doctor about the injections the last time he gave me. ouchie...just thinking about them makes me sick to my stomach! Oh stop the room spins! uuggghh! ...Ok..well, then he says then maybe your body is one that can't take those type of injections! I turned my head to him quickly and said, "What? you mean there's different kinds?" Yikes! He said yes there is!!! Oh Good Grief! I though about all sorts of things then....all running though my little mind! :o) eeeekkk! No way! So, I decided to sit there and hear him out! Whew! :o) He asked me what kind of pain killers I was on, and I told him Vicodine, but they don't work (obviously). And I told him that. I said that they could be flushed and he could try another pain pill, and I'd be willing to try it. No...no such luck. I felt my shoulders droop. <sigh> Then he asked me about having an epideral! I told him that I've never had one! He said never? Even when I had my children....I said never, even when I had my children! I had them both natural! I told him that I drove there myself, and if need be, I'd have to call someone to come and get me! So...Thats what he gave me....an epideral. This time...I actually got injections in my spine itself! It didn't hurt like getting them in the muscle. Whew! It also took a lot longer too!
So...he put this little table around for me to lean on with a pillow on it. I said, Ummm, Now What is this for?" He laughed and told me to just hold on! lol :o) On the inside...I was thinking,,,Oh, Ok...and why would I have to do that? But on the out side I said, "Oh, ok...thanks! With a big cheesy smile! :o) So, thats what I did, I hung on for dear life! No knowing what to expect! LOL The suddenly...I knew! YYEEOOUUCCHHIIEE!!! Those needles he uses look like something you'd see off of an old creepy movie...no lie! Plus...he even pushes the needle in deeper then my skin! And what can I do...but sit there! I wore my tie died t-shirt this time, because I really bleed a lot when I get injections, and this time, I would ruin any shirts this way! LOL :o) Quick thinkin' huh!? I thought so too! ;O) LOL Well....I know that he gave me 4 injections in my spine...I know he gave me more, but I couldn't feel how many more...guess thats a good thing! Not feeling it...being numb.....injections working....yay! :o) Get what I'm saying? :o) YAY! :o)
After he was done, I sat up right, and he came around and told me that I wasn't to take the bandaids off for 2 days!! What? Why? Because of spinal fluids might leak out! Ok..I'm making myself sick to my stomach! eewww! I just said, "Ok." I have to go back again in 2 weeks! My spine does feel very different. It's my spine thats usually giving me the most pain.
I got home, and the soup was done...YAY! I timed that one perfect! :o) It really hit the spot! My grandson had 2 bowls of it too! lol He like grandma's cooking! He's just too cute! :o)
After eating, I came in here and sat in bed to rest. I caould feel the medicine start to kick in a bit. :o) I had to also catch up on my favorite show, Ghost Hunters! It was pretty good last night! :o) My son came in here to watch it with me! :o) I love it when he does that. :o)My physical therapist came this morning and scard me to death! :o) Geesh! I have her to just come in the door, because its easier on me. She was quiter then usual...I turned and looked,, and there in the darkness she stood! LOL I jumped with a little scream....and she laughed! LOL It was funny! LOL :o) My new medincine has been working, because my muscles aren't so balled up and my joints arn't so swollen! So a great big .....YAY......!!! :o) I told her about my eyes, and she said that it will go away, it will adjust in my system soon.....Whew...how soon!? LOL Ok....They're dilated, and I'm seeing a burry double vision! LOL So, I'm seeing two of everything and they are blurred! LOL Thats funny! lol :o) Maybe I'm having a bit too much fun with this!!! LOL :o)
