Well after months and months of being tested, prodded, x-rayed and MRI'd in an effort of trying to get ALL my health back in check.. I am FINALLY getting something moving which I hope helps my bad arm, then I can move on to my head stuff (ENT), then I hope eventually to that Darn pain on my side.

Monday had the first of a series of three injections I am to get on my neck, apparently my arm pain which I never thought had any relation to neck/shoulder stuff until neuro suggested it and sent me to a pain specialist who in-turn came to the same conclusion after requesting more x-rays. He feels by week's end I should be at least feeling 40% better, I'm shooting for 90% (the power of positive thinking :D ).. Go back in two weeks for injection #2.. the only downside to this is that he does them in the afternoons and I have to fast all day prior because they completely knock me out.. It really shouldn't be a problem because some days I can go pretty much the entire day without eating.. It's just that when they tell me I CAN'T EAT it's when i want to eat. :lol: But can't have it both ways, so have to just keep busy not to think of food...

Other than that doing fairly well.. Keeping busy with my daughter and her school... Spoke with my angel girl Sunday evening which was awesome, she's a card.. Made my evening when I heard she said I wasn't a grandmother because I'm "not old" :wub: I will have to wait until I see her in person to explain to her that I am in deed a grandma (be it YOUNG) because she is in my life.. I really want to see her reaction to that..

Wishing all an awesome week!!

I hope that you feel 100% better after your first injection! I love that you are not "old enough" to be a grandma, lol. That is really cute that she said that!

So today is my 29th wedding anniversary.. which makes me feel kinda old :wacko: ..silver lining though (and ya already some silver streaking hair besides my two large beauty marks of sliver on my head :o), I guess that’s better than if I were still married to my x…then it be 35, would be feeling older.. :blink:

But it's a beautiful day, Fall is here, my girls and all my family doing well... I am blessed!! :wub:

Thank you all… We had a nice late lunch early dinner Sunday and really just hung out being lazy most of the day which was great (that comfortable old shoe syndrome thing).. B)

Karen, Suzi,

Lol, I wish I could figure out Why it is that men are told they look Distinguished and women look old.. though I know the "Women are like wine, the older they get the better they are"... But we have to find a knock out Word that conveys all of this.. :D Although silver streaks don't bother me since I've had them since I was born, it's just those darn wiry ones that stand up like antennas on top of the head that irk me. :lol:

Hummm, not bad Jessica... I had been thinking along the lines of lovelishis... but then thought sounded too much like an adult video star :o .. so back to the drawing board I went..

So glad you're finding answers that will help you feel better - I hope the injections help a lot!

Thank you Beth, I go for my second injection Monday..this time I will be better prepared for the side effects a few days later.. The first one has helped some, but unfortunately I didn't get to my goal of 90%.. maybe with this second one, keeping those positive thoughts going..

Thinking of you today, Mari! I hope the second injection can get you past that 90% goal.

Keeping you in our prayers, Mari!
