Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Tottering Around

Hi friends! Before the headaches became severe again one week ago, I was able to find my most favorite flowers in my most favorite color at two different garden centers. :) And they waited patiently for me to plant them in pots. I am not done. It is still slow going. However, if I park my derriere on an upturned 10 gallon bucket I am able to do this without falling over from the heavy medication!
THIS! THIS is my most favorite of them all. A ruffled, pink pansy. L♥VE
Good news. Out of desperation, I called the neurologist's office yesterday to ask if it is possible that they have anything sooner than next Thursday. Yes, I now go next Tuesday afternoon. Two days earlier is better!

I finished The Atonement by Beverly Lewis. If you like Beverly's books, you will like this. I read her books because they are pleasurable reads. They have a little love, a little drama and are filled with the simple life.

I was able to finish my May Snowflower Diaries SAL after dinner last night. No pictures yet. Too sleepy after that. I will share pictures next time. I went outside with the poodles and sat on my kneeling pad and cleaned out one garden bed afterwards. That woke me up! :)

I am hopeful this neurologist will have some kind of answers for me. There must be something. How can a person suddenly have excruciating headaches after facet injections in their neck(which got rid of the neck arthritis) and then just be told to take heavy medications to "treat" it?! And what, I totter around like an 82 year old?! Because that is what I am doing!!

I hope you have a lovely weekend! Thank you for stopping in. ♥

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

What gorgeous colours in the pansies. Don't you just want to match them to DMC and get stitching?

Hope this doctor has some better answers for you.

I've seen the blue purple yellow but never pink! Not around here. I hope you can get some answers without a multitude of testing, followed by relief.

I love pansies, too - I just bought dozens for my Dad's garden bed, he was very pleased. Good news re the earlier appointment, surely he will have an answer for you. Here's hoping!

Penny said...

Those are some gorgeous flowers, Vickie! I see your little helper in the garden. : ) I'm so glad you were able to get your appointment moved up. Hoping there is some solution other than the heavy duty pain killers you have been taking. Keeping you in my prayers!

Pansies are such happy flowers and these are just beautiful! Pink pansies :) I will have to see if they have any at our garden center...grins! I am so glad you can see the Dr. earlier and I am praying that he can give you some answers so you will feel like yourself again. That would be wonderful! I love Beverly Lewis books, I don't think I have read them all but I know I have read quite a few. Take care my dear friend and I hope you enjoy your weekend! Always praying!

Beth said...

What lovely pansies Vickie. I did not do a good job of potting my up this fall so I do not have a good display this spring.

Margaret said...

Oh Vickie, I'm so glad you went to the ER and have an appointment with a neurologist. I'm praying he has some answers for you. I've been trying to recover from this terrible bronchitis/sinusitis I ended up with after being sick on our travels the beginning of April. I'm finally feeling more myself, and am catching up on blogs. You know I've been praying for you the whole time, right? Continued prayers. And lots of hugs. I'm so sorry you are going through this.

Brigitte said...

I'm so glad for you that they could give you an appointment two days earlier. I do hope that the neurologist can help you by finding out what causes your terrible headaches.

Angela said...

The flowers are lovely. Crossing my fingers the Neuro will help. Take care.
