Surgery Update
Tuesday, June 18, 2019      11 comments

It has been a long haul but I finally have a surgery date with the new surgeon. He normally does his surgeries within two weeks. As luck would have it, he will be on vacation at the end of June and at the beginning of July, giving a lecture. ... Read more
My Plan B In Action
Thursday, June 06, 2019      10 comments

I went to the new hand specialist, orthopedist yesterday. I'm cautiously optimistic. The visit was like night and day when compared with the other doctor. I've found that most specialized doctors have a real ego. As specialists go, this docto... Read more

Monday, June 03, 2019      8 comments

It is one week since my surgery cancellation. There is still no answer about when the original orthopedic surgeon will be back in the office, after experiencing a death in his immediate family. Although my heart goes out to him and his family d... Read more

Sunday, May 26, 2019      14 comments

After weeks of waiting and preparing, I am ready for my surgery. Five weeks is a pretty long time to wait. Shopping is done. Conflicting appointments have been rescheduled. Pain medication prescriptions have been filled and post operative appo... Read more
Letting Go Of That Which We Can't Control
Saturday, May 11, 2019      17 comments

If there is one thing I've learned over the past 5 years, it is that sometimes things happen over which we have no control. What we do in those situations and how we handle them is what develops us as human beings. We do have options when ... Read more
No To The 2 prescriptions!
Tuesday, May 07, 2019      8 comments

Thank you friends for all of your support on my blog yesterday! It really helps! The pharmacy called this morning and said my prescription insurance has again denied the two prescriptions. The silver lining is a third prescription (the pa... Read more
A Few Small Answers - Yay!
Monday, May 06, 2019      11 comments

Today, I saw my new pain management doctor. At first meeting, he appears to be a kind and gentle person. That's good news. He actually sat down in front of me and read my paperwork. He asked a couple of questions as he reviewed it and made som... Read more
My Vent On Crushing Pain
Sunday, May 05, 2019      7 comments

The pain medication that my orthopedist gave me makes me sick. The nausea and abdominal cramps were awful. I didn't realize that the laws regarding opioids changed recently, due to the opioid epidemic. The laws are super strict. I agree that t... Read more

Tuesday, April 23, 2019      12 comments

Yesterday, I finally had my doctor's appointment to go over the results of the MRI on my wrist. The doctor had 90 patients (Yes, you read that correctly. - 90 patients!) on his schedule yesterday. To me, that seemed very excessive and to be ve... Read more
Taking Hand Use For Granted
Friday, April 12, 2019      6 comments

Taking the pain medication and having the brace back on my hand really stopped the crushing pain cycle! Yay! I only took one pill yesterday (before the MRI) and none today - so far so good! The problem is that the whole hand is so tender that... Read more

Monday, April 08, 2019      6 comments

Well..... After two weeks without my wrist brace, five days wrestling with severe pain (9/10 on the pain scale), unexpected hand/wrist swelling and a frantic call to my orthopedist, I'm now back in the brace. The doctor also gave me pain m... Read more
The Shots And Therapy Didn't Work
Friday, April 05, 2019      8 comments

After 2.5 months of treatment, I have come to the disappointing conclusion that the PT and steroid shots did work on my wrist. I had hoped to avoid surgery, but it looks like that will be the only option left. I will have an MRI on the wrist t... Read more
The Highlight Of My Day #30
Monday, April 01, 2019      8 comments

Yesterday was a slow paced day. We took Zeus (the wonder dog) to the doggy park, where he romped and played. We dropped him off at home after which hubby and I went out to brunch. I had an omelet and fresh fruit. I only ate part of the omele... Read more
Highlight Of My Day #29
Sunday, March 31, 2019      5 comments

Yesterday's highlight was driving to help hubby do a pickup for his job. Zeus rode shotgun with me. We took two cars and the guys loaded both vehicles. We dropped some items (that hubby can't use) off at a busines associates house, dropped Ze... Read more
