I only have a few minutes to sit at the computer. I recently spent the weekend at the hospital. I was in severe pain for a few days and it got where I wasn't able to eat or get enough fluids down with the heat wave over I thought I was getting enough water down. I ended up on an IV plus morephine plus lidocaine patches. I am home but limited on how long I can sit. Since getting out of the power chair I seem to be collecting braces to wear in order to stay on my feet. I have braces for each ankle, one knee, lower back and now one for my neck. The x rays showed some potential problems and on Sat I get to go for a few MRI areas to be done. I hope they get answers that don't require surgery.I have heard so many nightmare stories relating to back surgeries and have been trying to avoid surgery on my back. Good news I lost two of the pounds that I had gained. Not my choice for weight loss but anything that I can make positive I am going to.
Sorry to all my team mates if I have missed your birthdays. God bless my spark family.
