Friday scattergories


Gold has covered it,
My heart has a barrier.
It is built to protect.


I’m waiting to see a pain management specialist for an intake interview at 8:30. It cannot arrive soon enough. I’ve been dealing with intractable pain since August. One doctor kept postponing the opening of his pain clinic. Had I known he was going to refer me to another doctor, I would have done it MONTHS ago. So, more hurry up & wait. Hopefully this doctor will get me in before the end of the year & perform the nerve root injection in the clinic.  Otherwise, it will be scheduled at the hospital. I’d rather not go there. It’s been a hot bed of MRSA. Dreaded initials. With my compromised immune system, it could be the end of me. Fingers crossed & active prayer.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.

  1. Sending you blessings and wishing you well . Kathy

  2. I hope you receive encouragement from your appointment.

  3. I hope all goes well for you, Carolyn. Stay strong.

  4. Thank you for good thoughts & healing wishes. I received a cortisone shot in my left shoulder for bursitis. It has not yet helped. I remain hopeful.

    I was pleased to discover that the nerve root injection WILL be given at the pain clinic. They have the available fluoroscope to thread the catheter into the correct disc space. That will be done this coming Friday. Yay! Relief is in sight. I won’t know what time until Thursday.

    Please continue with good thoughts & prayers.
