Duh! Back to square one...

Sunday, March 29, 2015

I'm am once again 9 days post-op. I herniated the SAME disk that I had my previous laminectomy. Hmm... Could it be that there was only half s disk left and OF COURSE it's gonna rupture! Anyway. I got out if the hospital on the 23rd with another PICC line. Yeah, not so jazzed about that, as you well know. 4 weeks of IV ABX that cost $780 every 10 days!! Yup, not even April and I'm in the donut hole for my insurance. Just in time for the most expensive meds. I'm a lucky gal, you see. But I have blessings to count. -I took my first leisurely walk around the yard today. That's 0.18 miles. And YES it counts. Haha! Joe helped me out. -My onions are seeding after 2 years of neglect. They just keep growing! -Our blueberry bushes are lush with blooms and ready to kick booty. -My father's health is back in top shape after 5 stents and a pacemaker were "installed". I tell him he's got a new carburetor. -My mother has not pulled all if her hair out with my dad's surgery one week & me in the hospital 2 weeks later. She keeps on moving & us so efficient. If I were her, I would have to have a hissy fit by now. A huge one! But she has been working outside so maybe she's taking it out in the landscaping like I do. I want to add a photo in a bit of how great it us outside so those of you up north can see what's coming. Peace, Love, and the Ability to Walk Again, Crazy Ang
