Well, I can move about a bit more freely, although sitting at the computer is still difficult. I’ve managed 5 minute increments without too much discomfort, but that’s about it. It’s still progress. Hoping I can up it by at least 10 minutes each day. Fingers crossed!

I have less tenderness to touch on my back, which is a big improvement. Now showers don’t hurt, nor do shirts. I’m still working up to my medical alert necklace (yes, I finally got one after the last “incident”…not taking any chances).

And, a decision was made regarding my steroid epidural. Next Thursday instead of tomorrow. This ensures that I’ll have a driver (a necessity since I’ll have sedation) and it means I can go to San Diego. Regardless of how bad the back is, I’m going. I have to. I have business to which I must attend. In other words, I miss my family and I want my mommy! Hahahahaha! Yes, I’m a big baby at the moment.

All things considered, these baby steps are all very good signs that things are moving in the right direction. Next, I hope the constant rib and leg pain abate some.

As for the little legal issue I mentioned in my passworded post, I do believe I have worked out a very reasonable approach and also have a solid legal back up plan. Upon my return to full physical movement, we will do the dance of joy.


  1. Progress is good. Full physical movement will be bliss. :hug:

  2. When my neck improves I’ll do the dance of joy, but not until then. Ow. I try to console myself that it’s not nearly as bad as your back (which it isn’t), but then the next big headache hits and I’m back to ‘oh woe is me’ mode. Sigh. You’d think that 46 ywears of New Year’s resolutions would have made me a better person by now.

  3. Hey, it’s not fun getting old (the physical degeneration portion, that is), so at least we can speak up and let everyone know when it sucks the most. I know I’ve eagerly done my part.

    Speak up, everyone! If you hurt due to age and all that, speak up!
