Oh, bummer. These are the kind of situations that make me hate all our new computerized and techno ways of doing business that have removed the local contacts. Before, when the people were all folks you knew, they would have just waived that 10 day rule and made an exception.
Well, I will be thinking of you and praying for you tomorrow. I know what you mean about
not wanting to ride in a tow truck! Is there any way your cousin could come out and follow you into town whilst you drive your car? Hopefully there wouldn't be any problems, but then if you ran into trouble, she could run you the rest of the way to town and you could have a tow truck go pick up the car? I don't remember if your cousin lives close enough.... Wish I did! I'd be there in a heartbeat!
I'd even see if I could find a few Wilsons on the way and bring them with me!
My pain seems to have gone back up through the roof again tonight, which is super frustrating. I got a nasty headache over my right eye accompanied by nausea this afternoon on top of the pain, so that was fun...
(sigh) At least that has faded a bit. I am hoping I get some sleep tonight, because I was planning to try to work for a couple hours tomorrow.
Okay, so here's the bad news, too... You know how my PM wanted me to stop taking the oxy that my PCP put me on? Well, I figured I'd finish the script
I had and then stop, so that's done this week.
Well, you might imagine what I'm thinking now... I have felt SO crummy this past week and weekend. Now I'm really scared that if I stop the oxy I'm going to end up in the hospital again before I can blink!
Oh, what should I do? Should I ask the PCP for a step down dose of the oxy? 1/2 what I'm taking now? instead of just stopping? That means I'll still be on it when I see the neuro. Which means he might not see how much pain I'm in. Or should I just stop it and let what happens happen? I guess it would be technically good for the neuro if I ended up in the hospital again, but I SO don't want to be in that place again - physically speaking or pain wise!
I think you're right, PaLady. Between the full moon and our missing Wilsons we are just all a mess, aren't we?
