Hello, I'm Back!

Hi Everyone! 

I know I've been gone for a while but I'm back!  I've been a bit busy taking care of my husband and mother.  Both pretty much have the same thing, back issues.  One week I take my mom in for a lumbar epidural and the next I take my husband in for the same thing.  So I've become a caregiver to two people living about 50 miles apart!  Tomorrow morning I have to go to Scottsdale to take my mom to her doctor.  Then on Wednesday this week I have to take my husband to his doctor.   Wouldn't it be great if they both had the same doctor and had their procedures on the same day? 

I would like to say though, please take care of your backs!  As we grow older we will have some stenosis (narrowing of the spinal column) and causing pain on those nerves.  But if you have herniated discs, then it's much worse.  And in my mother's case, she has scoliosis that was never taken care of when she was younger so now with the age (87) stenosis, she's in bad shape.  I only hope that the injections tomorrow will help.  As for my husband, it's stenosis also but also 2 herniated discs.  He'll need surgery eventually.  But we are trying to get him out of pain and do the surgery later.  Take care of your backs!!!

I was able to create a little bit, but not much!  I'll be back later to show you all!  Have a great day!
