Weary on that Yellow Brick Road-

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Yes, still traveling somewhat and I'm getting weary. Latest update of the side-line into that Forrest of OZ:
Dr's have potentially diagnosed me with a fracture of the spine. About 2 weeks ago I noticed a sore spot in my spine, felt a lot like a stone bruise on your foot- if you've ever had one; you know what I mean? It only hurt if I lay a certain way or pressure was put upon it. Therefore when reported to the Dr he says, "Get me to an Orthopedist ASAP"; and do not do anything strenuous until examined. So that's where I've been, waiting on an appointment opening and not doing as much here or anything else. I have creeping numbness if I keep my arms at waist height. Soon I cannot hold or use my hands to do anything safely.

Still looking for an improvement on the Thyroid Replacements, not happening so far. I'm weary of it all, the Hounds are weary and bored with Mom's now lack of activity in life, the DH is weary of all the constant on going failures of my body. But none of them are near as weary and disgusted with myself and all human frailty as I am right now. We all know somewhere in the back of our minds that we grow old, frail, and die. We can't post pone it, slow it a bit maybe? But its going to happen- we all have an Expiration Date. You just don't expect it to have an ongoing life effect despite all your best intentions and efforts. Sad but true.

Sorry to be so grim, but that's how the road is going right now; off into the woods where the gremlins and spells were waiting.

Sorry to hear you are having these problems. I hope you are able to get in and see the doctor soon.

I'm sure DH and hounds are just happy to have you around.

    Maybe the ortho can help you because a spontaneous spine fracture is really serious. I have gone through rough periods like this and got better so there is hope for you as well.

    emoticon I'm hoping and praying that your road leads you to some sunshine soon. I also deal with chronic pain/conditions everyday and know how easy it is to get down about "IT" all. Don't lose hope.....there is a better day coming.

  Don't let the flying monkeys get you! It has been a tough year so far for everyone I know but hopefully it will get better.
