OMG Here I go again


Well, I went to my Orthopedic surgeon on Tuesday because I have been having back pain in the only area of my back that has not been operated on before. So, I thought I had just pulled a muscle or something and just wanted to make sure. Well, since it was in a new area I had to have X-rays done. Then after chatting with a nurse about my furbabies (my surgeon allowed me to keep Bella and Sarge with me during my first back surgery hospital stay. My daughter is a CNA and worked on the orthopedic floor so she took the time off and stayed with me 24 hours a day and did most of my care during that first hospital stay. My surgeon still talks about Sarge and Bella and still has the photo on his cell phone he just transfer them to his new phones!! I love Dr. G or as we refer to him as Dr. Sexy. He is as cute as can be and a huge animal lover and invites Dana and our families to his Halloween parties each year) and when he came in the room he didn't look happy. He said Lynn your
x-rays have really changed since last summer. I need to get a bone scan on you because you can't do MRIs anymore because of the metal in your back and if the bone scan doesn't show it well enough we will have to do another mylogram with CT scan. I said what is wrong another bulging disc? He said no, it looks like you have a spinal compression facture in one or more vertebrae!!!! I am like how did that happen, he said I don't know but this isn't good because you already have degenerative disc disease!!!! So that is where I am at!!! This will be surgery #7 on my back and in the only area that is not a scar already!!! I am like why oh why!!! I was working toward knee surgery on both knees and never considered another back surgery was in my future. Please keep me in your prayers or send good thoughts my way. I am just beside myself. My bone scan is next Wednesday. So hopefully it will show what it needs to show and the other test will not be required. That one is painful and I got sick as a dog after the one last summer.
I hope everyone is doing well.

Easter Swaps

Hi girls,
Got to make this short and sweet. I joined two Easter swaps. Viv's Whimpsy and Bumble Bee Lanes swaps. My partner for Viv's swap was Mona. She sent me the cutest little Rabbit and basket planter filed with chocolate. The chocolate went home with someone else. WE are dieting so I can have my knee surgeries later this year.

Amy from Bumble Bee Lane was my partner and she sent me a box of adorable prim goodies. A little doll,  a pineapple on a stick, candles tie with a small flag, and a red, white, and blue chenille ornament, two wax rabbits, a primitive style black angel doll to hang, some stars, and it all smelled soo good. My camera is MIA and this old girl has two knees that are being a pain in my you know what so I soon as I can find the camera I will get pictures posted or have my darling daughter take some with her phone when she comes over this weekend. Thanks again ladies for the goodies!
