What Happened on Monday.

As you read in the previous post, I had a visit scheduled with the doctor on Monday to read the results from my blood work and my Xrays.

My blood work came back just fine.  Other than having high BAD cholesterol, I'm in good shape.  My Xrays came back fine as well.  I know this is a blessing, but I really struggled with this good news.  I still didn't have an answer for what was causing the pain in my back.  My doctor suggested physical therapy.

My first appointment was yesterday, followed by another appointment today.  The PT found my back to have many spasms and knots all over.  All those are going to be worked out.  The PTs are also working along with a massage therapist to work the muscle that is causing me pain, most likely the subscapularis muscle.  I will be going to the doctor three times a week, for four weeks. 

There is one thing that I have learned through all of this:  Do not judge for yourself how much pain someone else is in.  Or how unbearable it becomes to them emotionally.  If you've ever dealt with this, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Anxious for Monday!

Anxious for Monday?  Who says that in  real life?  I'm ready for Monday to come because Monday morning I will get results from a blood test and Xrays to see what is going on with this crazy body of mine.  For at least a year and a half I've had pain in my back.  It's been hard to locate, but it's near my top, right ribs.  It's been putting physical and emotional distress on me.  Physical because it hurts, and emotionally because I don't know what is going on, and I'm too young for this! 

Other than that, Jonathan and I started "looking" at a house we both love.  Every day I would drive past it going into town and think, "I love that house."  Then it came up for sale.  I was excited, but I knew we could never afford it.  Recently, we actually looked at the realtor's website and found the price was reasonable, it was a foreclosure.  However, it's STILL out of our price-range.  {Sigh}.  As the saying goes, if it's meant to be, it'll be there when you're ready.
