Yes, I’m back. Shocked, aren’t you? I told you I’d try to do better!
Well, the title is referring to the fact that it is Friday but in my world at this time of the year it doesn’t really mean anything. I’ll be back at work bright and early again tomorrow morning. Still waiting to hear on Sunday. I hope we don’t have to work Sunday. I’m already exhausted and I about threw up this morning from the pain in my shoulder.
In updated news on that. I had my MRI on Wednesday. It was supposed to be 20 minutes of laying perfectly still on my back, then dye injected and another 20 minutes. Well, first off when they say perfectly still, they mean absolutely completely still. I was asked not to even swallow. I remember when I had my last one back in 2007 I had a tickle and kept coughing. At least this time that wasn’t an issue. However, because of the way my neck has been fused in previous surgeries, I don’t lay ‘flat’. The nurse tried… she gave me a thin blanket to put under my head, but it may as well not have been there. My neck and shoulder hurt that much more just from the position. Then, laying perfectly, absolutely still… not for 20 minutes, but for over 30! Yes, then they pulled me out, injected dye, and put me back in for another 30 minutes! I was miserable. I’m not claustrophobic and the noise doesn’t bother me at all… but the pain. Ack.
So here I am a couple of days later and I was sitting at my desk this morning trying not to throw up, my shoulder hurt so. I brought an ice pack to put on it and was trying my best to work and self-medicate, all the time hoping I didn’t throw up at work. That would be the worst. I managed to hold it together for a couple of hours until the nausea passed but I’m back on the ice pack again and wishing the day were over.
After work I’m rushing home and getting around to go to one of my son’s last races. Last week was the big “Supernational” race that lasts all week. I’ll tell you more about that in a future post. I just keep thinking of things I missed posting this summer that I really should catch you up on.
So, for the moment, you just still get me whining. Lucky you!
