Day Two Post Procedure

Sunday, May 17, 2009

Today is Sunday and I had my spinal procedure Friday morning. I'm feeling tired but the pain is about 60% gone! Yea! My hubby took me out for breakfast this morning . I was also well enough to walk out to the mailbox twice! It's beautiful outside and that made me feel happy. I'm getting better every day! Let's hear it for modern science!

    WOW, what a difference, Cyndi!! Ahhh...that procedure sounds almost magical, the way it got rid of so much pain! I'm so glad you and your husband were able to enjoy a nice breakfast out, too. Pain has a nasty way of constricting and restricting our lives, I've found. Y'know, I thought of you when we saw a Tempur-Pedic commercial on TV this afternoon :) So happy for you! - Sara emoticon

Feeling better and maybe a bit hopeful

Saturday, May 16, 2009

Today I'm feeling a bit better and seeing some little rays of hope on my horizon! My back is still quite sore and I'm very tired but a bit hopeful for the eventual outcome of my treatments. I'm off to take a little nap and play with the controls on our new bed! (Hey, I may be over 50 but inside there is this little kid who still loves to play!)

Have a Sparkling Saturday!
Cyndi

    I love your attitude, Cyndi! There's that old saying, "Attitude is altitude," and you're a wonderful living example of that. Rest up well in that nice new bed you so wisely purchased. Here's hoping the injections are still continuing to work on your back pain and that tomorrow might be even a little more pain-free for you. You give lots of "Sparkle" to our Saturdays and every other day of the week, and who sez we kids in the over-50 section of the sandbox can't have a great time having fun? All the best, Sara emoticon

Our New Bed Is Great!

Friday, May 15, 2009

I just want to let all of you know that our Temperpedic "Rhapsody" bed is awesome. For the first time in 15 years I slept without any pressure on my trigger points and didn't wake up because of pain! emoticon That is a major accomplishment! My hubby got on the bed and immediately raised his head and foot. Then he turned on the massage feature and went to sleep at 8 p.m.! (I knew he'd use it even though he told me to only get it on my side! - I got it for both sides and I'm glad I did!) He said that it's wonderful and he really likes it. I agree! The first two steps in my campaign against pain have been completed! (I had my first series of 6 shots/blocks today on my lower spine.) Onward ho, here I go!!!!

    Cyndi, those of us with all kinds of physical challenges would do well to keep an eye on your progress! I really love your proactive attitude toward combatting as much pain as you can and am delighted to read how your new bed is helping relieve not only your pain - plus give you better-quality rest - but is helping your husband sleep better, too! You make me want one. And the first in your series of spinal blocks, too! You've definitely taken lots of action toward feeling as good as you possibly can - wonderful! - Sara emoticon

Doing Fine

Friday, May 15, 2009

I had my 6 shots in the spine this morning and I'm doing fine. I'm in discomfort but that is normal. I'll be in bed (my wonderful new bed!) through the weekend and then I have to take it easy for 2 weeks. I will probably have a repeat of the procedure in 3 weeks. I should then be good for close to a year. Next we'll work on the mid spine. I'm doing well so far. Thank you for all of your good wishes and prayers. It means a lot to me!

I love you guys! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Our new bed arrives Thursday!

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

We finally bought our new bed and it is coming between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. tomorrow! I can't wait. It is a Temperpedic and it has a built in massage function as well as being movable electronically. This will really help my spine when I sleep. This is the first step in my campaign against pain! Friday I am having 6 spinal shots which will most likely keep me flat for the weekend. The idea of being able to alter my position in bed with the touch of a button is very appealing.
