Happy Birthday Dad

Today is Dad's birthday!!! We hope he enjoys today and can find something at Lowe's with his gift card we sent him. Michelle said she would also help you eat your caket oo :)

Not much else is going on. I am BACK (lol) into PT for my back and with a whole new therapist at the spine clinic. After seeing Dr. Kalafut (Cal-foot) on Monday it was determined that I some how ruptured the disc under my L-5, which was pinching the nerves on the right side causing sever hip pain and the numbing of the last two toes on my right foot. I will go for 6 PT sessions and then will see the dr again in mid-august. If PT hasn't helped I have other options, one involving needles and sedatives, OH joy. There is also a good change that an MRI will have to be done at some point down the road, OH JOY.

In the good news department, Michelle doesn't have to wear ankle braces any more YEAH!!! She has one more recheck appointment in October and them will hopefully be release. Since she is out of her ankle braces I can now begin the task of finding shoes to go wither little flower girl dress for (Tia) Anne's wedding.

OH my aching Hip

Last Thursday I went to see Dr Harper (the GP doc) about my right hip giving me trouble. So much trouble that sleep was a hard thing to find. I had to have lower spine and hip X-rays done just to see what was going on. Silly me though it was the bursitis acting up. BUT according to Dr. Harper my L-5 (the one right above the hips) was out of alignment. Um okay, but my back DOES NOT HURT and I have mild scoliosis. So instead of telling me what is wrong he goes here's some celebex and go to the specialist. Oh joy the specialist. So Debbie, Dr. Harper's nurse set me up with Dr. Kalafut (pronounced Cal-Foot). Down side I don't go to the specialist until the 23rd and the Celebrex is doing NOTHING for the pain.
