I’ve had a good week. On Tuesday I had the last of two nerve blocks and the majority of the pain is now gone. When I get up in the morning I don’t hurt at all. After I’m on my feet all day I can feel pain in the back of my thigh and calf, but it’s not nearly as bad as it was. Just getting rid of the pain has made me excited about life again. So I’ve been working on organizing the sewing room (again—still). Ronnie got the 2nd armoire put together and moved into its place and I finally finished getting everything firmly in place this afternoon. What do you think?
I’ve also spent a little time out shopping, sewing, got my hair cut, finished a baby gift and started the next one, and got a job offer. LOL It’s been a good week. Got the car washed yesterday because the dog hair was taking it over. The weather has been so bright and beautiful lately and no rain was forecast, so don’t you know that by yesterday afternoon it rained? Of course! But it’s still nice and clean inside.
Today (after cleaning both fish tanks and doing 3 loads of laundry, then finishing the sewing room) I made spaghetti sauce that smelled heavenly for hours before Ronnie got home from work so we could eat. It was hard to keep away from it. I’ve only cooked a couple of times since the treatment Tuesday allowed me back on my feet, but I’ve really enjoyed eating at home and not all the fast, fat food. I love to eat out but when that’s all you do, the excitement pales quickly. Hope I can keep this up for a while. I go back for a follow-up at the pain management doctor’s on the 12th and I want to see if I have limits and need to do a 3rd nerve block, but I don’t want to overdo it so badly that I get back to where I can’t do anything again.
The old clock on the wall says it’s heading toward 2 A.M. so I’d better sign off while I’m ahead. Goodnight.
