Moving can be exciting! I have done allot of it in my life, heck even as a little kid my family moved allot! My father worked for the Govenment, and there was allot of moving! But I have been in this house since we built it in 1990, going on 19 years, I had never lived in any one place so long! We have most everthing divided up, and we are boxing things up, so when we start showing the house, it will not be cluttered, I am thinking about renting a storage locker for a while, as I don't know that I will stay here in this area all that long! There is nothing really keepiing me here, except maybe having established Doctors! I guess that is a pretty good reason to stay, at least for a while! We shall see! I kind of, well it would be nice to move closer to my daughters family so I could see my Granddaughter more, I was even thinking about LaCrosse Wisconsin, I had lived there once as a small child, and it is only 60 miles to Rochester and Mayo's but it is Colder up there than it is here, and I really don't know if I want to be in the cold any more! I do have some decisions that I will need to make and I really don't want to make them! Because I really don't know where I want to live! As each day passes it weighs more heavely on my mind!
Yes Pamela I think the disc in my neck is really acting up on me, ever since that one day a couple of weeks ago, I have had allot of problems, I have really white hot searing pain in my neck going from the left side of my adams apple and throat up to the back left side of my head, it comes and goes, but it causes me to gag allot, and that causes other problems! Anyway I have bad pain in my left elbow and into my hand, this past week and it is very difficult using my left arm, it is somewhat similar as to what I had along long time ago before I had my fusion! So I am thinking that it just may be that bad disc above my fusion is acting up! I see my pain Doc tomorrow and the Neurologist the 29th. So we shall see, When the neck pain gets really bad I put my cervical collar on to stablilize it and it really seems to help!
