Good Thursday Morning!

Good Thursday Morning Sparkers!!

It's 0500 and I'm up with a cup of coffee! No going back to bed when the kids leave, I've decided that unless I just got no sleep (which has been happening a lot) I'm not going to lay back down and nap again. Lack of sleep is a good reason, but I don't want to get into the habit of it again, and I got plenty of sleep last night. Only got up coughing once.

Didn't get up with abdominal and back pain at all, so that tells me that the meds the doc gave me are working. Hooray! Maybe I can sleep now and have my days back! I start physical therapy next week, I don't know how that is going to help, but we will see.

X-ray showed that it is NOT a pinched nerve like the main doc thought (I'm still wondering about all that). They are degenerative changes mainly because of my size. It is nothing acute yet, so we just have to keep an eye on it and I have to lose weight. It really seems like everything comes down to my being morbidly obese. Lose weight and all this will get better or stop getting worse or be manageable. In other words I have a whole lot of reasons to lose this weight!!

We find out about the house today!!! The assessment on the house was Wednesday and we were told we would get the results today!! Everything hinges on this coming back in our favor. Whether we get the house or have to find temporary living quarters till we can find a house to buy all depends on the results of this assessment. I'm not using the right word, my brain has failed me, I can't think of the word for this type of assessment. Gah! Oh-well, hopefully you know what I mean. I'm going to try to not worry about it, but I was a nervous wreck yesterday after DH told me we find out today. Praying it comes back with the right numbers!!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a Spark*tastic day!

    It's so hard not to go back to bed when the house is empty. I'm determined not to also; although the last two days have been really late nights. Have a great weekend.
