Pain in the Butt

Tuesday, September 01, 2015

New diagnosis with doctor's visit yesterday: Ankylosing Spondylitis of the Right Sacroiliac Joint-literally a pain in the butt. I was content with my family of ruptured discs. I left with two injections at the "trigger points" which helped quite a lot. My thoracic epidurals are starting to wear off and he said when I got the next round, he would also do this new area. The situation is very frustrating because there is so little than can be done. My job is literally going to continue a "month at a time." Bummer!

Meanwhile back at the ranch, the girls are adapting to the little shift in their diet without much difficulty and Granny is happy now she knows she can still make them an egg to share each morning. They know, however, the little 8 calorie cookies are not as dog-yummy as their old treats so they spit them out and follow me around for something else with this Get Real expression on their faces.

Hope everyone had a great day!

    Sure hope the injections do their jobs and you have some relief. I'm not sure why our bodies have to fall apart like this. It's amazing any of us can get from point A to point B these days!!! Good luck to you, Lynn. Glad the girls still enjoy their eggs (tell mom to take one egg and one egg white and it will seem like more and hardly any calories in the egg white). You're doing great!! Hugs, Jeannie

    I totally understand that "get real" expression! Our dog gets an incredulous look on his face when he doesn't get to share the leftovers from dinner (You're kidding - right?!? But, wait! I'M part of the pack, too!!!)
