I know it's been a few days since I last wrote. I sent Christmas cards out on Saturday to the ones that emailed me their address, and the ones I had from last year. If you would like for me to send you one, just email me your address. :o)
This weekend really seemed to just drag on and on to me. I think it's because of the weather we've been having. It's just back and forth with the temps. and rain and snow. <sigh>
Dh and I watched two of our favorite Christmas movies Saturday night. Christmas Vacation and of course, It's A Wonderful Life. Next week, we're watch our other favorites. We do this every year. :o)
Yesterday, I had an appointment with my arthritis specialist in Englwood. He put me on a new muscle relaxer. My insurance doesn't cover it unless the doctor calls in to my insurance himself to let them know that I do need it. Or, just give me another script. The medicine is $300.00! Whew! So...insurance has to cover it, can't afford that just for 90 pills! It must be a new pill for it to cost this much. The pharmasist said it should be filled by 1:00 today, and I'm sure hoping so! I could use this new medicine.
This time he didn't squeeze my knuckles on my hands, he just started squeezing and poking around my shoulders and spine! Ouchie! I always leave that place in more pain then I am in when I get there. Good grief! But, he's good and I do like him.
My mom is the one that takes me to the doctor's that are further away from here. I know I wouldn't be able to drive it. After the appointment, we went for lunch and she took me so I could do a bit of Christmas shopping. I had $80.00. I got Kayden a few things that I know he will love. It also felt so good to just be out of the house and shopping!
Believe it or not.....I was worn out by the time we got home! lol I couldn't wait to get those clothes off and into something a lot more comfortable! Whew! That felt great when I did! :o)
The rest of the day...I just did a lot of resting in bed and watched tv. I had to rest. I was in a lot of pain by then. I went to bed pretty early as well.
This morning when I got up, I noticed that I had some dried up blood in my left ear! Great! I did get a call from the nurse practitioner last night as well. She said she was getting back to me from a call that was made on Thursday! I am thankful though, that she did actually call back. I told her about how the antibiotics were giving me severe cramping in my stomach, even though I took them with food. She said that she would call in another one for me today. Then she had asked about my chest hurting. I let her know that it's been hurting when I breathe and now it hurts all around in the back too. She said that the new medicine should help that as well. I sure hope so. My hands are so swollen this morning, I can barely move my fingers. It's even hard to make a fist. ....this too shall pass.
No plans for today! I really need to rest. I just feel like crawling back in bed and just sleep all day long! And I'm not like that! But, thats what my body is telling me to do I suppose. <rolling eyes> So thats probably what I'm going to be doing, even though "I" don't like it! lol Yes, I know, I'm just as confused as you are probably right now! :o) It's my body and my mind fighting again. So my body wins today! :o)
Have a good one!
P.S. Dh got me a bunch of stamps Friday night, so don't worry about that.....I can send out cards. :o)
