My husband's back is hurting so bad that he hasn't been sitting in a chair for more than 10 minutes at a time. He goes to speech therapy on Mondays to help with his swallowing. I put him in our truck, took him to the hospital, and brought him upstairs. With all the sitting he had already done, he couldn't get comfortable enough to sit still for the therapy. Thank goodness the therapist understood his condition and told me to take him home so he could go to bed.
I just spoke to the Dr. and asked for a stronger pain medication. This is the 3rd time I've asked for something stronger. I hope this works. We have 2 weeks before I am supposed to take him on a 3 1/2 hour trip to Louisville to see a Parkinson's specialist.
If we don't get the pain in a place where he can ride in a car for 1/2 an hour, I will call the Louisville Dr. and explain to her what's up and ask her to call in refills to my pharmacy. I'm sure she will do it because she told us that she would be satisfied if we were able to see her once a year and we were there in Oct. 2012.
Thanks for all your prayers for my husband and me!!
