Hi everyone. I'm just checking in. The past couple of weeks have been horrible! If I could have jumped out of my body and given it to a pack of wolves I would have done it in a heart beat. My arm continues to act like a big charlie-horse most of the time and the color stays the color of a fine red dinner wine. I only wish it gave me the same effect. The days continue to run one into the other as sleep is hard to come by. My right hip seems to have chronic burcitis so it is impossible to lay on it. I obviously can't lay on the left side so my back is the only place that I can lay. After the trillion (at least it seems like I've had this many) number of surgeries I've had you'd think that I'd be O.K. with laying on my back. My left scapula is just so tender. (It was just scoped right before my surgery) and there are a couple of trigger points there that I'm sure could sing opera. My pain, on a scale on 1 to 10 was about
a 17 one Sunday. I was laying on the floor crying and my husband was rubbing a cool cloth on my shoulder. He gave me two Percocet and 2 Baclofen and we changed the Durogesic patch to see if that was the problem. It was time for all of that to take place anyway so never fear.....I wasn't taking too much. If things didn't change in about
an hour I was heading for our local hospital and begging for help. Thank God things straightened out. I went to see my internest today because the top of my shoulder and left side of my neck was swollen as well as was my left scapula and the back across. I had a bunch of lab work done.....my wbc is 3.1 as usual; sed rate is 38 but I feel like it is at least 138. Those were the biggies that I was interested in. I don't have the sheet with me. I feel so sick and I can't put my finger on what it is. I would love to just curl up in a blanket and just watch HGTV and just tell the world to leave me alone. Any of you feel like that today? Come on over and we'll just watch it together. I just made a killer pitcher of iced tea and maybe we could get some rest.
