HERE GOES

SO THIS WEEK HAS BEEN HECTIC TO SAY THE LEAST AND I'M NOT DONE YET. SO FIRST OFF LETS START OFF BY SAYING TOMORROW I HAVE MY LAST PT SESSION. IT'S MY LAST ONLY FOR TWO REASONS FIRST ONE WAS THAT'S ALL THE DOCTOR ORDERED. SECOND OFF BECAUSE THE PT THERAPIST DOESN'T THINK ITS HELPING BECAUSE OF THE PAIN IN MY BACK. EVEN THE PAIN PILLS AREN'T DOING THE JOB THE WAY THEY SHOULD.

SO LETS START OFF GOING BACKWARDS.....TUESDAY I HAD 2 APPOINTMENTS THE FIRST ONE WAS TO SEE A SPECIALIST FOR THE PAIN IN MY LEFT SHOULDER. AFTER HER ASSESSMENT SHE DECIDED TO GIVE ME A SHOT JUST LIKE THEY DID LAST YEAR FOR MY RIGHT SHOULDER. SHE SAID IT PROBABLY WONT WORK RIGHT AWAY AND MAY EVEN TAKE UP TO TWO WEEKS.

LAST NIGHT AROUND 8 PM I WAS SITTING IN MY RECLINER WITH HEATING PAD ON BACK BECAUSE I HAD DONE WAY TO MUCH WALKING WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I ACTUALLY FELT MY SHOULD DROP. RELEASE. IT WASN'T KNOTTED ANY MORE. SO I TRIED TO MOVE IT.....AT FIRST IT WAS STILL A LITTLE SORE AND STIFF BUT IT RAISED ALMOST ABOVE MY HEAD SOMETHING I COULDN'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO YESTERDAY MORNING. SO I WAS NICELY SURPRISED THAT IT WORKED SO QUICKLY.

FROM THERE I DROVE TO MY REGULAR DOCTOR TO TALK ABOUT WHAT THE PT DOCTOR TOLD HER AND SEE WHAT SHE THOUGHT WE CAN DO. SO WE RAN OVER THE WHOLE STORY ABOUT WHEN I HURT MY BACK THE FIRST TIME WAY BACK IN ABOUT 1995 TO WHEN IT WAS INJURED IN THE CAR ACCIDENT IN 2008. AFTER RUNNING OVER IT ALL SHE LOOKED IN MY RECORDS AND COULD ONLY FIND THE MRI ON MY BACK BACK IN 1995. THERE HAS BEEN ONE DONE SINCE THEN BUT I COULDN'T REMEMBER WHO AND OR WHERE. SO OF COURSE THAT'S THE FIRST THING SHE ORDERED AND THAT WHAT I HAD TO DO THIS MORNING. NOW ONCE SHE GETS THE MRI BACK SHE WILL SET UP A TIME FOR ME TO SEE A BACK SPECIALIST. THEN WE SHALL SEE WHAT MY NEXT STEP WILL BE.

SEE LAST WEEK WHEN I WAS AT PT SHE STARTED ME OUT WALKING DOWN THE HALL WITH THE CANE. OK NO PROBLEM EXCEPT IT WAS A VERY LONG HALL AND I DON'T WALK THAT FAR. I MADE IT THERE AND BACK THEN SHE SAYS LETS TRY A WALKER BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE WHEN THEY BEND FORWARDS THEY RELEASE SOME OF THEIR LOWER BACK PAIN. SO SHE FOUND ME A WALKER AND TOLD ME TO WALK THE SAME HALL AGAIN. WELL I GOT ABOUT 4 STEPS AND I COULD FEEL MY LEGS STARTING TO GIVE OUT I STARTED TO SINK LOWER AND LOWER WHEN I SAID I'M NOT GONNA MAKE IT AND SHE RAN AND GRABBED A CHAIR AND SHOVED IT UNDER ME. I SAT THERE FOR A BIT THEN HAD TO MOVE TO THE TABLE AND LIE DOWN AND SHE GOT ME A HEATING PAD AND SAID WELL THAT ANSWERED THAT AND THEN TOLD ME SHE WAS GONNA CALL MY DOCTOR AND THAT WHY I'M HERE TODAY JUST ABOUT COMPLETELY WIPED OUT.

I'M TRYING HARD TO GET MYSELF TOGETHER BUT I'M SEEING MYSELF FALLING FAST.

there has to be something you can do in a smaller area to get you started before sending out out into the wilderness.
Walk on the spot or hire someone to walk for you while you put out another quickie.
I notice you love quickies ;)
