Good Morning my friends! It has cooled here a bit. So nice. I received this wonderful, beautiful gift from Chris a few days ago. This was what she sent me for her 200th follower giveaway.
Emerson's birthday weekend was great. So was the cake! ;) He already treasures the bookmark, I can tell. I found him reading his Bible that night, with the bookmark. =)
Yesterday I had a follow up appointment for the ablation I had. Basically, it did NOT work. The PA now says to do those "test injections" and the the radio frequency
for my SI joint. I told her I didn't understand why we didn't do the SI
joint first, since this has been diagnosed as my pain point for years.
She said based on the exam and the good test injection results for my medial branch (my lower spine, I guess) the
doctor felt he had it pinpointed. So more trial and error junk. sigh.
This should get started in two weeks, I think. I will now hope and pray
this spot works. In the mean time she is going to try and get
authorization for the brand name Neurontin for me. This drug kept me at a
2 pain level daily, years ago. I had to go off it eventually because of
insurance changes. It was no longer covered. Only the generic. I tried 4
different manufacturers of this generic. None worked well. Not at all
close to keeping me at a 2. So she said we should go for both the meds
and the procedure, to really knock my pain down. Well, we will see won't
we? sigh again!
I finished A Place Of Healing by Joni Eareckson Tada. This book was recommended to me by my friend Julie. Thank you Julie. I am very glad I read it. It was inspirational. It helped me understand some of the things that bother me in dealing with my constant pain.
Do not forget I am having a giveaway right now. It is for Plum Street Samplers Love Notes. See this post to still enter.
I am almost done stitching Snappy Sampler by Bent Creek. It is a small, quick little thing. Fun too. I changed one of the colors and I like it. Pictures soon. And I will be offering the chart up next time to you,if you like.
Have a fun day! Hope it includes some stitchy time.
Stitching and praying,
