The sciatica that has plagued me for two whole weeks is beginning to wane and giving me more pain-free moments everyday. I am so grateful for the medical help from the hospital and Dr. Phimester and my chiropractor, Dr. Darren Paul. These people and their skills gave me so much relief (not to mention the morphine). I am also thankful for the healing power of Jesus.
Now on a light note, spring is bursting out all over so I thought I would share a little Spring in musical form. Spring Song by Felix Mendelssohn. A lovely piece to calm the mind for writing.
This illustration gives a pretty good indication of what I've been dealing with this week. The sciatic nerve pain got so bad that I called an ambulance to take me to emergency just so I could get some morphine in my system and dull the seering pain.
Fortunately, they had some and after an hour or so, I had relief, an x-ray, a prescription for some heavy-duty pain meds and a requisition for a CT scan. On top of the sciatica, it seems I have an infection that is causing my lymph nodes to become inflamed from overwork fighting it and a twisted muscle in . I'm feeling a little better today but the term "a world of hurt" wouldn't be amiss. The medication makes me dizzy and dopey so I'm not getting much writing done and my clients' work is progressing slowly - not surprising.
However, onward we go. Tomorrow, the CT scan, a visit to the chiropractor and then I'm the guest for a Facebook chat about self-publishing like a pro. I hope you can join Suzanne Lieurance and me at 11:00 Pacific time.
Where I share creative ideas, uplifting thoughts, and spread sweetness to help us all make life pretty.
