Friday Update

Friday, November 09, 2018

Good morning. This past week has been terrible. I spent some of Saturday and Sunday in the ER. The pain was debilitating. Saturday they gave me Toradol and Morphine. Sunday just Morphine. I did have them take an x-ray of my hip since the pain is all there. They said it looked great. I went to the pain doctor on Tuesday. She gave me another injection of cortisone in the muscle that hurts so bad. That seemed to ease the pain a bit. She was very rude which immediately set me to tears. Does she actually think I want to be spending my money to go to her or anyone else to help with this pain I'm having? I left so upset. I didn't work Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Yesterday I made it to 2:15pm. I start at 8am. I'm hoping to get through the full day today. I also have to work this weekend. I went to the chiropractor on Wednesday as well and he did a 'shock' treatment. That's what I'm calling it. It sounds like a staple gun going off but it targets the areas that would normally be manipulated by his pushing down instead. That treatment finally gave me some relief. I'm still having difficulty putting on the socks and shoes. It's a good thing I had invested in a pair of slip ons a few weeks back or I'd be waking my daughter up to help me get my shoes on. I don't think she'd appreciate that very much. lol.

On another note my little guy is getting so big. He's cute as a bug in a rug and onry as can be. He's pure kitten yet and nothing stops him from tackling any of the 4 other bigger cats I have.

Well I must finish getting round for work. It's snowing here this morning in Ohio. My deck is covered, so is my car. So I'll have to take a few minutes out to start my car, get it warmed up and clean off some of the deck. I thought to myself yesterday if felt like snow in the air.

Have a nice day everyone ~ Donna

Just for kicks ~

    So sorry to hear about your battle with pain, and then to have to cope with rude doctor. I hate the pain too, and haven't found relief yet either. I have refused cortisone because It wears off within a few days and I'm right back where I started. Still trying to find a doctor that treats the cause, not the pain with meds that just hide the pain and then cause other side effects down the road. Take care and at this point, good luck in finding the cure.

    Sorry so many issues. Have you seen a specialist in spine as issues there can impact hip.

    I am so sorry that the Dr was rude I do get it that some people just want pain pills but you just want relief and there is a big difference I pray that the pain eases up or at least that they can figure out where it comes from and what is causing it

    your fur baby is so cute
