Hi Everyone.. Yes I took that photo this past summer one night when the sky looked like it was on fire. The Summers here are long and hot but the sunsets and sun rises in South Carolina are just beyond beautiful....
Its been a very, very busy week and I am glad it's near over. Monday was a total disaster. It was one of those days where everything that could go wrong, went wrong, it was incredibly stressful and one of those days you thought would just never end. Thankfully, God worked everything out in his way and timing and Monday did end. This same day my husband went in for a three hour test on his spine which ended up only taking about 2 hours. more on that later.
The first few days of each month are so busy for me because that's when I do all the food shopping (I shop for the month), meal planning, bill paying etc and along with my every day stuff and medical stuff for both my husband and myself.
Tuesday I had to go to Costco. Hadn't been there in a few months so I needed to stock up on some items and to my surprise it wasn't as expensive as I thought it was going to be. Walmart however, was. It was actually more than I figured... The dollar sure doesn't go far anymore these days.
Wednesday we met with my husbands back surgeon to get the results of his MRI and Myelogram and to our shock he said there is nothing surgically wrong that needs to be fixed. This is good and bad because it doesn't explain why he's in horrific pain yet again. The doctor wants to keep investigating. Next up is another EMG (nerve conduction test, yes it's painful) if nothing there, then an MRI of his neck since he has had his neck fused at one time also and if nothing there on to a neurologist. The bottom line is, there was always the possibility because of the severe damage to my husbands spine and nerves from all the surgeries and the degenerative disk disease that one day he would end up in a wheelchair and this, may be it. We will just have to see.
I was able to get my MRI scheduled for the 23rd on my shoulder to see if I have a torn rotator cuff and or metastatic cancer. I only hope I can get through it. I've never had one before, my husband has had many... They are VERY loud and VERY tight and I am VERY claustrophobic. So the way I am looking at it is, I will try my best to get through it. If I can't, I can't.... then they will have to figure something else out.
Today I am taking it as easy as possible which isn't very possible with a husband, five dogs and chickens but I am trying. I got some laundry drying at the moment, I cut up and froze some fresh peaches for my banana, mango and peach smoothies, Of course I fed everyone, did the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, made the bed, put laundry away, made a smoothie, paid some bills etc and now I am just reading blogs.
Going to try and take it as easy as I can the next few days...
Hope you are all well..
God bless you and keep you.
