What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Sunday follies

The prednisone has run its course and I still have pain. The percocet is almost gone as well. This isn't good. So tomorrow we'll call the doctor and see what's to be done next. Pain is not a good way to live.

I certainly hope they find something soon.

Today we finished putting away the Xmas decorations. All boxed and stored away, awaiting another season. Note to self, I need to fix some of the light strings before next year.

Tomorrow we need to prepare for the couch delivery on Tuesday. That will mean some heavy lifting and cleaning. This week is almost fully scheduled with the addition of having to run various errands. And at the end of the week is Confusion in Detroit. I really wanted to be pain free for that, but now I'm not so sure that's going to happen.

I forget, did you get prednisone spinal injections or did you take it in pill form. It was the injections that helped me. I hope your pain goes away soon.

They were the pills. I also hope the pain goes away before this next weekend. It would suck to be in the bar and not be able to drink my usuals. One of the benefits of being in the hotel bar, I don't have to consider who's the designated driver.

What's the likelihood that this is a rotator cuff problem? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotator_cuff

Cassie, that's what I thought at first. My regular doctor did the x-rays and came up with aggravated arthritis. The first day of the prednisone z-pack went pretty well, but since Friday it's been going downhill. Granted, I didn't really rest this weekend.

My guess is today's visit (if they're open MLK Day) will lead to an MRI.
