Tuesday, 11/27 Not Letting Up

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Hi all,

Uncle--uh, no I mean: UNCLE!!!!!
This pain is not letting up and even when I go to the pool, it stays kind of there and jumps back out at me almost the minute I get out of the water. It is really going insane. I have had non-stop, earth-shattering, makes me sick-to-my-stomach pain for three solid days and a couple sporadically before that. I am wondering if this is to help me to make sure I take care of business and have my surgery.

If that is the case, I don't need the pain because I never even considered backing out or anything similar. I initiated it when I realized the injections weren't holding it at bay. It is awful--and if that isn't enough, if I have a cough, a yawn or heaven help, a little sneeze, well, wow-wow-wowwee-wow!! It hurts in ways I cannot explain. I am guessing because when you do any of those things, your body has an uncontrolled jerking and that hurts deep inside my hip. Argggghhhhh. I am tired and I am having a lot of difficulty focusing. I finally took a pain pill around 3 today even though I had a seminar from 3:30-5:30 that started 15 minutes late. I kind of slept through half of it because between the meds and the pure tiredness of my body, I couldn't quite fight it off. I listened, but I couldn't keep my eyes open.

I also told my administrators today about my surgery. It was time with less than three weeks to go. I have asked if any of them have any suggestions for subs and I have asked a couple of trusted friends for names as well. I cannot seem to find a reading person, but I have an idea of two good primary classroom people who might be just who I need. I will give them a call tomorrow and see if they are interested. The worst they can say is "no" at this point, and I won't be out any more than I already am.

Anyway, one bright star in all of this is the kindness on my painful blog from yesterday. You guys are all too sweet and I am so glad to have you in my corner. When I go to work, I sure feel alone much of the time. there were a lot of my good friends at the seminar today and that was a good feeling. I must admit the new thing "close reading" is something I have been doing with kids for a very long time. I went though to make sure I was on track and, whew, I am.

I am almost finished with my presentation for tomorrow. I know how it is going to look--it is only supposed to be 15 minutes, so how badly can I do with an article that is packed with so much good data and information?

Thanks for your good wishes and prayers--they are helping me maintain my attitude right now!!

Gentle hugs,

    I am so glad that you don't have long to wait now for this surgery. This last injection didn't last any time at all. I hope all of this extra business is behind you soon and you can just rest. emoticon

    So very sorry to hear you are suffering so much -sounds exactly like what happened to me before they finally did my left hip -and the difference after when I had the surgery was amazing -I didn't even need painkillers although they did keep me on a regimen while I was in the hospital -which I ditched as soon as I was out. Hold that thought Sylvia and stay strong. Its Hell, I know, and I am hating that your surgery is so far away that it seems like years.
    I am feeling for you and sending comforting, soothing thoughts and {{{gentle hugs}}}
