Today I am grateful for............still trying to think of something.
...and if I could, I would say this:
"Mark, you will call your mother on Mother's Day, send her a card and a bunch of flowers and you will come and put down the ten bags of mulch she wants."
"Pam, you will have Christmas Eve at your house so we can all remember back to the years we lived there."
"Karen, you will have a family picnic at your house and it will be on my birthday. Remember the BIG birthday party you all planned on giving me--4 years ago? Well, this can take the place of that."
"Jennifer, you will call and invite your mother to every school, sports, or church function your children take part it. You will also invite your mother to come over to your house for supper, once a month."
If you remember, I go to the Chiropractor occasionally. I have a recurring shoulder problem. Well, actually 25 years ago, I ripped a ligament near my left scapula. Every now and then this all flares up and hurts so much it makes me nauseous.
It has been hurting off and on for the last month--coincides with all the crocheting? Maybe.
This morning I woke up at 3:00 with the most horrendous pain in my shoulder--neck--scapula; running down my numbed and burning arm into my numb hand. Left side--hm-mm.
At 3:30 am, I assumed it was a heart attack, middle of the night stuff is always scary, so I got up and walked around. The pain lessened a bit. I was not sweating, I was not dizzy, I was not nauseous, my heart wasn't doing anything stupid. I took an Advil and went back to bed, laying on my right side.
At 6:00, I woke up again--pain as bad as before. I got up, took another Advil and sat in my recliner for a while. I rubbed some horse liniment on it and back to bed.
I woke up at 9:00 and it still hurt a bit, more up in my neck then shoulder.
I took a Naproxen. Put my hot rice sock on it and sat in my chair for most of the day.
I decided not to crochet anymore--I have two pairs of slippers to make for CHRISTMAS--they can wait a while. I decided to call the Chiropractor and then changed my mind and called my orthopaedic surgeon instead. I do believe this can be helped with physical therapy and the only way I can get into his physical therapy office, is by a referral from him, and his physical therapy team is the very best around here.

He will want to give me a Depo-Medrol (cortisone) shot, but I am opting out on that big, long needle, unless he puts me out with Versed first!!!
I am so tired today and just not "with it", in fact, it is hard to type this without a whole lot of mistakes. It's like my eyes just want to close--and maybe I need to recline in my chair and take a short nap.
Hm-mm. See ya----
