Results of MRI

Friday, August 10, 2012

Had my doctor's appt today. I have a partial tear in the rotator cuff and a tear in the cartilage. We're not doing surgery. I have certain exercises to do and one with the pully.

He wants me to contiune doing my therapy on my hand. Therapy is done at home, so I've got to keep it up.

He also gave me a cortizone shot in my shoulder. didn't hurt as bad as I thought. Hurts more when I do the exercises though, especially trying to put my hand behind my back.

He tried to bend my thumb (first knuckle) and I was off the table. Now I have to work on that more. Ugh! If only I could stand pain.

    My DH also has a rotator cuff injury. Did it playing tennis last October and the 'supraspinatus' is giving him a lot of pain. Had already cortizone injections, exercises but doesn't take the pain away and he can't lift his right arm above his chest withour feeling pain. Decided to have an operation to fix it, booked for 2nd October.

    Ouch! emoticon emoticon emoticon Are you allowed to ice your injuries after your therapy? That might ease the pain right after you've done your work. Hope you get better soon! Ouch!

    Courti just do as the DR says and if the pain goes away you STILL TAKE IT EASY. You do not want to re-injure for sure. I know what you mean though when the DR twisted my knee a few weeks back I wanted to jump off the table and right on him..................ha Will continue those healing prayers.

    Wow - it must be the year of the rotator cuff injuries... Alicia is right - take it slow and easy. While some pain is unavoidable - it's so easy to re-injure or extend the injury! I hope that each day gets a little easier and that you heal well and completely! HUGS!

    It is so hard to work past the pain point because that is the body's way of saying stop, but there are times. After I had my cartilage surgery at 17 the therapist was waiting as I opened my eyes and said - remember me? I replied yes and then she said - remember the exercise I showed you yesterday? I again said yes, and she said - do it now. I just about thought I would faint but it was a different hurt more of a - unused muscle hurt and not the I tore it when I was on the uneven bars. Do them very slowly and very carefully and it will keep the pain level down as much as possible. I promise it will get better slowly the more you do them.

Thinking about changing username.

Thursday, August 09, 2012

I think I might change it to ~Court~

It is hard to read as it is now. Some people think it is court 17, when it is courti and number 7.

I'll have to find out how to go abut hanging it and see if it is taken. Surprising how variatins are already taken.

I'm thinking on it.

I tried to change it but it wouldn't take the ~ symbol.

Okay, I changed it using the - line.

Prayer for cousin

Saturday, July 28, 2012

Just found out that my cousin will be gong into Hospice either today or tomorow. She had a stroke yesterday morning and was doing better, but late last night she started going down hill. I didn't find out until this morning. Please keep her in your prayers. Cousins can be closer than other family members.

UPDATE: I just got word that she passed away, but I do appreciate any prayers she had. I guess God wanted her back. It's easier to think of it that way.

    Of course God wanted her back Courti and she will never be gone from you. She is always just a memory away. I had so much fun with my cousins when I was growing up and thank God for FaceBook as we keep in touch that way now, your so right sometimes they can be closer then brothers(or sisters). I am so sorry for your loss sweet friend and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Cleaned up cookies, now I get no mail

Saturday, July 28, 2012

I don't know waht I did but I'm not getting any e-mail on my e-mail I keep just for sparkpeople mail. I keep a separate e-mail from my persnal e-mail.

My spellcheck hasn't been working saying something about cookie too large.

How am i suppose to keep up on who sends me comments on my spark page or on my feed? How ill I know when I get post to one of my teams?

I have to go to each team to see if there is a post.

I wonder if I did something wrong when I did the defrag or when I did the cookie cleanup? I must have clicked something I shouldn't have clicked.

I guess I'll have to check my blog every now and then to see if I have any replies.

I thought my computer would run faster by the cleanup but that didn't even help. Still a bit slow. I know it is something I did, always works out that way.

My dh's cousin instulled my printer, but screwed up getting the scanning, now if I uninstall the printer to start all over, I won't have a printer at all becaue I'll screw that up trying to install. I"m not computer savvy.

Sometimes what I do is type what I want into a works document where my mistakes are highlighted, then I can correct, copy and paste it into my post. Takes longer to do, but at least most is corrected. Smaller post I don't do that so there'll be mistakes.

So if I didn't reply to anyone who wrote me, I just didn't get an alert. Sorry.

    I'm getting some notifications now, but I see some postings on teams that I didn't get a notification on. It's so inconsistant.

My spell check still doesn't work, says the request header or cookies are too large. What?? I defragged and cleaned up my cookies and defragged. Shhot, now I'm hungry.

    There is a spot you can check to see if Spark is blocking your notifications. Go to your Start page and look up in the left hand corner. Click on Account/Email Preferences--it should be right under your name. Click on the Email tab (middle tab). If your email provider and Spark have had a miscommunication (happens to me a couple of times a year), then there will be a paragraph in red type near the top of the page. There will also be how to fix it there as well if this is the case. Nothing? Now look down at the bottom of the page. The third check-box from the bottom will say *Never email me again*. If this box has a check in it--unclick it. That one had a check in it one time for me and I KNOW I didn't check it. Hope this helps.

Update on SIL

Monday, July 23, 2012

My SIL had to go in for a shot to help increase her white blood cells, otherwise she can't get her chemo. She's had to go 3 days last week for the shot and today. Today was an extremely bad day, as they had to treat her for dehydration and things just didn't go well. She wanted me back there and asked them to get me, but no one came to the waiting room to let me know.

She is depressed, mad and jsut all over frustrated.

I do appreciate all your thoughts and prayers.
