I say once again when there is bad news 2 tell a person with sever depression that u should tell them they need some1 w them @ the appt.
Well I went to the orthopedic today. Got lost going there - panic sets in. I finally find it. The dr tells me the same thing that I've heard b4 that basically I will have pain in my bac 4 the rest of my life due to arthritis here is the difference he feels that I need to get Spinal Fusion, but he no longer does back surgery. i now have an appt on Jan 6(I will not b going alone) to c if another dr will do it.
I will know tomorrow when my appts r 4 the emg; cat scan; physical therapy & the surgeon 4 my hand.
The worst part 4 me is my hubby not being here while I'm going thru this prayerfully he will b out of his program in March. Due 2 all of these appt I'm going 2 have 2 give up some of my volunteer work.
My daughter has decided 2 keep La 4 the wk which gives me more time 2 focus on the physical & spiritual cleaning of the house.
I joined a chair exercise team so I'm hoping 2 find new ways 2 exercise. Right now I'm focusing on chair marching - the goal is 10,000 a day - I m trying 2 reach that by Friday.

When I got the news 2day I realized just how much I've shut myself off from ppl. There was no1 that I had 2 call 2 help me thru my anxiety's. It's amazing I used 2 b such a social person - now I can go days w/o contact w ppl except taking La 2 school.

    Bless you, too!!!

I had 5 or 6 doctor appts this week and next week will have another 4 appts. I can't believe it myself, but the internist doesn't take care of orthopedic problems and they specialize, so I have a foot specialist, a knee specialist and a hand specialist..... then there's the sleep center doctor, the physical therapist, the neurologist, the chiropractor, etc. etc.

Hopefully after January things will slow down as far as dr appts go.....hopefully I will not have any new maladies pop up....

Hope you only need one surgeon for your back....some of the back doctors specialize in low back and neck, etc.

I hope your doctor does what is best for you and will say a prayer for you, too!!! emoticon

Merry CHRISTmas 2 All

Saturday, December 25, 2010

We celebrate on CHRISTmas Eve, so 2day was nice & peaceful. Yesterday was busy busy but it was nice. 2 of kids n their families came over - my middle child had 2 work.
I will b posting a few pics in a cpl days.

La went w my daughter 2day n she is suppose 2 b w her until after I c the orthopedic on the 28th. I'm still waiting 4 the insurance 2 approve my other appts.
The house is already back in2 pre-0Christmas order except the decorations which will b up until @ least the 6th if not longer.
Its getting more difficult 2 type my hands just hurt so much. Sleep wow wouldnt that b nice I cant sleep on my side due to either side causes the numbness so I have 2 lay on my back which means elevating my upper half just aint working 2 well.
Prayerfully its count down time till hubby is back home, cause I really need help around here. It takes me so long 2 do simple things.

May the new year bring u good health & much happiness.

    Sorry you are having a tough time sleeping. I found when I lost some weight that I slept better and did not have numbness problems. I have put on some again and found the numbness is back. grrr

Take care,

There should b something against giving a person suffering from severe depression bad news especially medical

I went to the neurologist n now I m being scheduled to go back to therapy; to c a surgeon n to get an emg n cat
. emoticon
I need surgery on my left hand for carpal tunnel - my right hand was done over 15 yrs ago. My neck xray showed that the spondylolysis so now I know that its in my lower back n in my neck. I have to sleep w the hand brace - supposively it will help w the numbness @ night.
I'm gonna keep exercising I just need to find more stuff that I can do while sitting with the legs getting worse. Just taking La bac n forth to school is so hard on me but hey @ least I get 30 mins of cardio in

Well thats enough whining for 1 day gonna finish this batch of cookies n lay down n watch CHRISTmas movies - they do cheer me up

    Take care my friend. I just checked your SparkPage to see if you are a member of the "CHAIR EXERCISE TEAM" and say you are not. Go to my page click on ADIEOFTESAS's picture and check under General Team Discussion Forum for EXERCISE LINKS***DO NOT POST HERE*** and see if these will help you.

May Christ bless you and your family during this time!
