Well, yesterday my neurosurgeon's office cancelled my appointment and can't reschedule until the end of October. He will, apparently, be away for the entire month.
So just watch me crumple into a dejected heap of painfully pathetic human, who kind of wishes people wouldn't promise her an end to all of this and then keep moving it off like a carrot on a stick.
The only good news is that I have an appointment with another PM doctor next week. Hopefully we can develop some play by which I become a little more human, not a pretty well drugged up but still in a lot of pain... something or other.
