~ Update~

Hi friends~

I just wanted to come by and give ya'll an update. I went to Dr. Pain Wednesday afternoon and he felt the only way I would get any relief is by injecting my cervical spine with Demerol and steroids. So, I had a procedure done yesterday. They were all super nice to me including My Mister who brought me these....


They even let me take Benjamin into pre-op ( and gave him a fancy blue hat to match me ) but put him on a shelf while I had the procedure. Mister said when they came to get me to take me into the procedure room. I sang " I Loooooove Yooooou~" to him. Ha ha....I was glad for the medicine that helped me relax before they put me to sleep. The last thing I remember was them rolling me onto the table on my stomach & a nurse saying "this is going to be cold" and I felt one sharp sting. Then Mister was saying "babe~ it's time to wake up" and the first thing I said was " is it over?' He said yes and I asked for water. :) I vaguely remember getting in the car but not the car ride home....came home got in my pj's and went to sleep. About 5:00pm I woke up and asked for mashed potatoes and Mister made me some toast. It was so good....lol.

Here's a picure of my new bandaids today.....all that pain and I get 2 bandaids....lol. I'm still swollen and so far haven't felt much relief ( they say it could take up to 48 hours ) but I'm thankful I did it....if I can get just a little relief it will be worth it.


Can see how swollen my neck and upper back are....part of that is the bulging disc...eewwww

I'm going to try & make my way by to visit all of you. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
I've missed ya'll!

Hugs~ J

I really hope that this gives you relief soon. As for your questions, I've been visiting doctors and ERs with my kids. Nothing big but it's one of those crazy cycles where everything falls apart all at once, lol! Take care. Hopefully this will allow you to get back to your normal soon. :) Me

Hey Jessica,
Bless your heart...I hope that procedure helps you to feel better. It sounds like your Mister and Benjamin bear are taking really good care of you. Your Mister is such a sweetie....the flowers are beautiful. I miss you too, but you rest and get to feeling better!
Big hugs,

Jessica: I've been thinking about you and have been praying for you to find some relief from your pain. I love those flowers your Mister gave you too. Take care of yourself. I'll try to stop by in the next day or so. It's (as usual) crazy around here and tomorrow's my day off so I don't know if I'll have time to log on. I'm sending you a {{HUGE HUG}} to try to make you feel better!
