I am still walking, breathing, talking, and I’m ok with that.

Originally posted 2014-04-23 13:35:05. Ok, from the first time I got sick, to the first surgery to the last. They all were needed for something. After 19 surgeries…let’s see. One of the bigger ones was the spinal fusion. November 2004. Went to the doctor for a CT/MRI follow-up. He tells me…you broke your spine. I literally thought he was playing. I mean come on. You are still walking and can feel yet you are telling…

Here’s what’s next

Originally posted 2019-11-19 19:40:50. Went to the neurosurgeon yesterday morning. For one the radiology facility didn’t make sure they put all films on the disc, ughh. The PA even said they normally do not have to specify to put all films on a disc but I guess someone decided to do it their own way, who knows. I just have to get the other films on disc and give them to him next appointment. Get…

Time for another one

All I want to do is just UGHHHHHHHHHHHH Ever get that feeling? Where you just want to scream STOP!! Like WTF!! Yeah… well that is how I feel right now. Yesterday, when I took Dusty to his neurology appointment we were told time to replace the batteries in his VNS device. Yes, I know… it is just a simple little surgery to change the batteries. Let me explain why I just want to scream UGHHHHH.…

It’s Back Again

Originally posted 2019-10-25 11:00:14. I had to go see a new neurosurgeon. They needed new MRI, CAT, Xrays, and all the work. Done most of that. I started physical therapy yesterday. Funny thing is she is the same physical therapist my husband had for his knee. So working with her was easy. Now that I have had the new films I am eager to see the surgeon to know whether or not they will be…

Spine-less Possibilities

Originally posted 2019-10-14 17:00:03. The Virus, Mold, And Germ Destroying Refrigerator Air Purifier https://bit.ly/2THPYFu Last week, my primary doctor put in a referral to see a new spine/neurosurgeon. That appointment was this morning about an hour and a half away. I think I had mentioned in a post after the last injection in my spine that I started to feel more pain. I thought that the spinal injection reduced the inflammation and that would explain…

From then to now

Originally posted 2015-06-17 18:24:50. My life has been moving so slow it seemed the past week or so. Yet no time for things that needed that extra attention. My husband had slowed to an almost halt and trying to motivate him is beyond frustrating. He has no idea some of the things I say or do are to try to motivate him. He has kind of just gotten into this slump. He comes home talking…

Scar Tissue

Originally posted 2020-11-16 09:00:17. Since I haven’t been able to get an appointment with my favorite massage therapist since the beginning of 2020 I had to find something to help. I won this Wonder Maxi massage gun in one of Adoption First Animal Rescue’s fundraising raffles. I started working on areas that never seem to get enough time. My midsection, my stomach. I have had so many surgeries and alot of them have been in my…

Painful evaluation

I finally had the evaluation for physical therapy for my neck today. I get there and the lady gave me the questionnaire to fill out and it also had the sheet to fill out to show where you hurt. You know “circle where it hurts, draw a line where it hurts.” Except this was for low back pain 🤦🏼‍♀️. I had to remind her this was for cervical radiculopathy. She had to look back in…
