DOCTOR UPDATE

Good evening everyone.

This is the first time since last week that I have been able to get an update out to all of you on my shoulder.

I have osteoarthritis in my shoulders and neck; tendonitis in both upper arms; possible bulging disks in my neck; and a frozen shoulder.

I am on meds for the pain and the swelling.  I have been given three weeks for these to work.  If they don’t, the next steps will be a nerve conduction test which my doctor described as medieval torture, an MRI and possible surgery.

I asked for the delay because I am praying that things will improve without the tests and surgery.  I have noticed a slight improvement in the pain and stiffness, and a lesser feeling of constriction which I assume means the swelling is also going down.  Praise God for this small improvement after only a few days of meds!

I miss all of you greatly, and am trying to figure out how to find time for a visit or two; but so far  things are not working in that direction.

Take care and God bless.

    • Hi Dei! I’m missing you too and am really missing my writing time; but there is such an abundance of things going on, I am too tired to even think at the end of each day much less come up with a sentence or two! 🙂

    • Hi Patti. Thanks for the encouragement. I am feeling better, but still have moments of pain from neck to fingertips. I am hoping when I talk to the dr. this week, that he will decide the test is unnecessary. 😉

    • Thank you so much Evelyn. The shoulder is improving a little at a time. I have to be careful what I do and how I do it so as not to continually aggravate it; but God is faithful and gives strength for each day. Praise Him for His grace and lovingkindness!
