Just a quick one from me.
I'm back in hospital. I was meant to be coming in today for just a few hours for my cervical sympathetic block, but my leg blew up last night with cellulitis again, so my doctor is keeping me in for a few days of IV antibiotics.
Block doesn't seem to have done much. I know he hit the right spot because my arm warmed up. When I woke up it was completely numb and paralysed, but as that's worn off the pain has come back in spades. My neck and shoulder are in spasm too, despite my baclofen and them having given me something else for muscle pain.
None of this helped by Mum and I being in a minor car accident on the way to the hospital this morning... We were rear-ended while stopped at traffic lights. She's hurt her back and I've hurt my neck. Just another bad day in the march of bad days :(
