That's what I was thinking. Those are all tests to make sure nothing is wrong as opposed to a series of tests because he saw something that concerned him.

Saw the cardiologist yesterday. He wants to do some follow-up tests including an ultrasound, CT scan, stress test and a 30 day monitor. Probably nothing but better safe than sorry.

The heart and brain scare me. You definitely need to see the cardiologist as soon as possible. I hope it is nothing at all but better safe than sorry.

Bummer about losing the referral, but, like you said, at least you're on better pain med management and it gave you an opportunity to discuss your issues further.

I've got an appt today with a new cardiologist. I've been experiencing some weird heartbeat patterns lately and thought it a good idea to get in to see someone about it. It's probably just the stress from losing my Dad, but we'll see. I had a large pericardial cyst removed from my heart years ago and I'm supposed to see a cardiologist annually. It's been at least 3 years since my last visit, so I'm due.

The interesting thing about yesterday is the pain management doctor said the pain in my hip and the side of my leg is L4/L5 (where my old injury is) but the pain in the front of my leg & groin as well as the loss of feeling in my leg is from L2/L3. So just to be safe he is going to do an epidural in L2, L3, L4 & L5. The L4/L5 pain makes sense since this is where I get the pain in my right side. I have lived with that pain for so long that I did not recognize it as being the same pain but just on a different leg.

Do you remember the show Candid Camera or Punk’d? I could have been on one of those shows today. The pain management doctor’s front office lost my referral and the doctor had no idea why I was there to see him. He had to call my referring doctor and talk to him and I ended up not getting the epidural today. I am now rescheduled for next Wednesday. I ended up fasting all morning but I guess it doesn’t hurt to fast two weeks in a row. The good thing is he gave me much better pain killers than my first doctor.

I left the office early yesterday and went and hung out with my Mom. It was a good afternoon.

Called my Mother-in-law yesterday after church to take her for a mani/pedi. Turns out she was under the weather and with the rain and cold I told her we should reschedule, which we did. I'll leave early from the office one day this week and take her. So, I got a day of doing absolutely nothing, which is exactly what I needed. I'm in the office today, but have a headache and would much rather be in bed. Sounds like I've been doing an awful lot of complaining as of late. I'll try to do better...

I am so sorry to hear of you dad passing Andrea, love and well wishes for your family.

Back surgery...ugh, I saw the L4-L5 fused? That is the most common problem in the lower back. Mine is fused at L5-S1, which is the last disc above your tail bone. Surgery recovery was pretty easy...even with a 360 fusion and cuts on both front and back. My husband did epidermal shots, they didn't help him, but I hear good things for most people.

I can't remember now where my Dad's problems in his back were. I want to say they were in the L region, but it's been too long. They went in and removed calcium deposits from between the discs and he received much relief. Hoping you get results from the epidural shots and pain meds.

I have mixed news for my back. The recent bout of pain is a brand new bulging disc at L2/L3 and they are going to treat that with epidural shots and pain medication. Then once that has been addressed I still need my lumbar fused at L4/L5 but it is not an emergency anymore.

My dad was expected but my mom had a massive stroke and died 2 weeks later never having woken up from her coma. My dad made me sad but I had time to prepare myself. My mom's death was a lot tougher because it was a surprise. I did eventually get over both of them so I know you will too.

Thank you so much. It just does not seem fair that life is going on. How dare the sun rise this morning when we are all so devastated? I wrote his obituary this morning. I laid out his clothes yesterday. I think we have everything together that needs to be done. Staying busy helps. My step-Mom is doing fairly well. We all have our moments.

I am sad to report that my Dad passed away suddenly last evening. He had quadruple by-pass surgery last week and due to complications, he never got out of the hospital. I am in Indiana now after driving all night. We will meet with the Funeral Home tomorrow to make final arrangements. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. He was a wonderful person and was loved by many.

I waited until I could not take pain any more also, then there was no other option. Dr. Stackniak in Plano did my 360 spine fusion in April 2015. I have been 90% painless since then.
Surgery is scary, but if it's time, you will be happy to no longer be in pain. Recovery wasn't bad at all.

So sorry to hear you are suffering. I hope you get real relief soon whether it ends up being your back or your hip. Pain anywhere such as that can be so debilitating.

I usually have a high tolerance for pain but I must admit that this one is winning. And I swear the pain is in my hip and not my back.

I couldn't take the pain in my hip any longer today so I went to an orthopedic urgent care. Turns out it is my lower back again and not my hip at all. The PA told me, in his opinion, that I cannot put off surgery any longer. The last spine doctor I saw in 2016 recommended surgery and when I said no he said, "well then come see me when you can't take the pain any longer." But today I learned that if I ignore the pain long enough I can actually become paralyzed permanently. So I am really bummed because except for my lower back and torn rotator cuffs, I am in the best shape I have been in for a long time.

Thank you for all the well wishes! Miracle is doing great and getting some much needed rest.

Today is Monsoon Monday apparently. It was really coming down in Plano when I left the house this morning. Not so much here in Irving, but still a steady rain. I brought my 93 year-old Aunt Betty to work with me today. She's reading a book I had on my desk about Mary, but I hope to get her busy archiving some old files soon. emoticon

Miracle's surgery went very well. She's home now and resting comfortable. I'll take her back in 10 - 14 days to have the sutures removed. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers! emoticon

Congrats on the deer!! I'd love to see a photo.

Miracle went into surgery this morning. She'll stay in the hospital overnight and I'll pick her up in the morning around 10:00am. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. This has been a difficult time.

Could it have been more humid this morning??? I don't think so!

I received some devastating news yesterday. My little dog, Miracle, has breast cancer. She's scheduled for a lumpectomy next Tuesday as well as being spayed. We'll know more after the pathologist's report as to whether it's localized or metastatic. Hopefully they can remove it and get it all.

Definitely wearing a happier face today. I've got my little dog, Miracle, at the office with me today. She has a Dr's appt at 3:00pm, and rather than miss most of the afternoon, I brought her with me and we'll go straight to the vet's office from my office.

Here's a recent photo of my baby girl.

That's funny. I felt the same way but a few years ago I met a family moving from Kentucky to Dallas because their allergies were so bad in Kentucky.

I've never had as bad of allergies than I have since I moved to Dallas. I also have them year round here.

Flew to Philly this morning on the 6 am flight and I usually sleep on the plane but for some reason I couldn't sleep so now I am really dragging today.

Yes, yes they are. I think I'm better this morning. If I didn't know any better, I'd swear I'm suffering from allergies this season. My husband has always suffered when the seasons change, but I've never had an issue.

I am feeling better this morning. I sure hope I continue this upward trend.

It is probably the sinus infection, I'm still dealing with headaches a few weeks after mine

I just cannot shake this headache. I assume it is from the sinus infection.
