Back to the hospital on the 26th

I haven't been blogging lately and it seems that all I do is move things. I'll be back settled in with Al at the end of March and I'm happy about that. He has certainly changed a lot since we seperated, so I would say the slogan "'Absence makes the heart grow fonder" is true.

My storage room is filled with all the craft supplies that I collected in the last 4 years, so it's time for the bigger craft room. I have it pretty organized, but I still have lots to move and I will have to store my bedroom furniture in there also but it will be out of my way to do some crafting.

It's been very cold here with our temps in the low to mid 20s and tonight is supposed to be the worst of all the nights. We still have 3 more days of freezing weather but no snow for us, just plain old freezing temps.

I went to the doctor yesterday and got some trigger point shots in my neck and will be going back in for another epidural in the upper neck. I had to wait 6 weeks since the one on my lower back, so I should have some good pain free days, and I have only had a few of those. Surgery is needed on my neck but I am so scared and he said as long as I tolerate the pain with the epidurals, they will leave it alone. He said I would know when the time comes to do the surgery. Have to have a liver profile done to make sure my liver is doing okay. I may have to detox and start over with the pain meds and he said it would feel like a really bad case of the flu. Not sure if I am ready to try that for a week, but my body has become tolerante to the meds and they are not working as good as they should. Please say a little prayer that I can get Some relief,even if it's only for 6 months at a time.
Well I need to call my daughter to check in on her. She called last night and said a lot was going on but I missed her call and she went out to eat with a friend. Please keep my sweet angel in your prayers also. She is so heartbroken, but the wounds are slowly healing. She deserves a man who will treat her good just as she treated the last one and hopefully she will find the man of her dreams. Love and hugs to all. Pat

Stephanie, 49 states had snow but we were the only one that didn't get any snow. Even though it's freezing temps right now, there is no chance of snow for us. I can't wait until the weekend when it warms up and I can do some things in my craft room. Going to take a picture of what it looks like for now, but it will change later in the year. Thanks for the prayers. I so believe in them, because I have seen the power of prayer with my own eyes. Love and hugs, Pat

Hi Pat, hope you are feeling okay! Thanks for always stopping by my blog. I love hearing from you! I had two surgeries on my back last year so I know the stress you are going through. My pain started and got so severe so fast that I had no other options. I hope you are feeling better soon!
