Hi everyone! :) Well, things haven't changed or improved much since my last post. Still can't bend, etc.. and PT isn't doing much good, at least not yet. We're still not sure what is going on with my hands... when they called to confirm the EMG to day before, they informed me that they would need the $200 co-pay in full before I could go back to prepare for the test. With us between paydays at that time.. well, it didn't happen as scheduled. We're working on re-scheduling it. So, we still don't really know what's going on with anything. They are trying some different time released meds to help manage the pain. No real results yet.
So, pretty much everything is as it's been for the last several months.. no better, but no worse. I think I'm starting to just get use to the pain. And I've started pushing it aside and ignoring it again.
I wanted to take a moment as well to say a big THANK YOU to Diene, Linda and Annie for the AWESOME birthday cards! It really raised my spirits this week to receive them! We're having an arctic blast cold front here, so I've been more achy, etc than normal. To receive those cards and the wonderful gifts of seeds and bookmark inside them was such a boost for me! LOL, Cliff said he'd not seen me light up like that since I stopped doing swaps :) I hope I didn't miss thanking anyone for the cards,if I did, please don't take it wrongly- I mean no slight in the least! These new meds make me a bit screwy at times. I hope that each of you that sent one can grasp even a small glimmer of what those cards mean to me :)They are currently adorning the wall across from the bed so that I see them first thing each morning. And I am so very touched that so many remembered that my birthday is next week! I miss everyone so very much! I will have to see what the next swap coming up is. Whether I can bend or not, I'm getting the itch to garden :)
Seed and plant catalogs... not to mention we winter sowed a few things on the Solstice- a normal part of our celebration.
I just wanted you all to know how things are going here and how absolutely amazing I feel my friends here are! I love you guys and gals!
