Sunday evening and taking stock of what I need to do

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Hi all

Well on Friday I spat the dummy with myself and the pain, phoned the doctor and was able to get into my own doctor at 11.45 am! Miracle! I told her that I was over all the pain I was experiencing in my back and hip. She agreed and sent me for a bone scan which will show up what is wrong with my hip and of course my back ... and we know what the problem is there.

She wanted to give me stronger pain killers but that meant maybe I couldn't drive - so as I said to her, I have been on 6 Panadeine Forte a day for so many months, another week wouldn't make any difference and I seem to be able to manage???? with that. More pain relief would be good .... but....

So next Friday I get the results and we will see what is going to happen. I have been gardening heaps (probably shouldn't be!) as I figure if I have to have surgery, there is no way I can be digging in the garden afterwards so i want to get as much done as i can in the next few days.

I have decided I have to look at what I am doing on SP and I have resigned from the Fall 2012 challenge and the Teddy Bears team. I am sorry to do this, but I just can't put the time in.

Same with other teams. I will do my best, but that is it.

As far as being team leader of Sparkling in Oz and WW and SP together - I will continue but please be patient with me.

Exercise - will be gardening as I can do it, and the peddler I purchased that I can do in my chair. Walking if I can. Watching what I eat.

Sorry to pull out of things, but this is how it has to be.

So to the teams I belong to that I am not active on - sorry - but I won't leave the teams and will do what I can.

On a lighter note - I was in the garden yesterday and Max was in there with me. I needed to come inside and so let him in, not realising he had muddy paws .... he decided to race around the house and jump on the bed with the cream doona cover ... you guessed it - muddy paw marks all over it ... needless to say - I had to wash it yesterday - just what I needed! LOL

Take care

    Sandy, I am so sorry to hear of the pain you have been in. Please take care and do not overdue things. I hope your test results will be okay and something they can treat without surgery. All the best with whatever you find out. Hugs and prayers, Irish Ei

    Hi Sandy !! .
    Hope you get the results soon and they are not as bad as you expect ..
    Have you tried Panadol Osteo?. They are much better for your stomach than Panadol Forte ..
    and you can have 8 a day ... Just a thought .
    I use them as I can't have a hip replacement ...
    Its good to fine down your involvement in the teams and I must admit I am glad you are staying with us ...
    You are such a inspiration ..

    Like you, I love my garden and it is amazing just how many steps we do in the garden ...
    I will be busy deheading my roses soon ready for the next flush .. so more exercise that doesn't seem like exercise LOL!.
    Much love my friend ..Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon
