An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Well, after a long year plus a month, the knee doc says I don’t have to go back to see him for a whole year…unless something drastic happens. That would be the good news.
The bad? Well, ya see it’s like this… a few years ago, I was having some problems, went to a doc, and was told my spine is splintering. Not just in one area, but the whole spine, so surgery to remove the splinters was out of the question. I don’t remember asking it. I have no idea what that means, but that’s what the guy said, and was suppose to call and set up another appointment. Well, his office never called, I did make the attempt, but hey…if they don’t want my money, I’ll be happy not to give to them!
So, I told the ortho dude that I was starting to have increasing back pain, and discussed the issue with him. Signed a piece of paper, so he can get the records from the other guy, and see if I need to repeat any of the tests, or if we can just move forward. Can’t have an MRI, so that’s not even an option. He said something about a nerve block. Sy whut? Isn’t that what Chris has that makes her so miserable? Maybe not. Something about needles and steroids. Just give me the pills, and keep the needles to yerself…thankuverymuch!
Welp, we shall see. Told him the knee was going to be the only thing left working in the long run. The rest of me is falling apart…pieces dropping here….chunks there… sigh….
For the very, VERY good news…everyone at the office I spoke to said they’d be REAL happy when we got a new president. Don’cha just LOVE informed folks?!?
