I have all kinds of good (some bad) news! First of all, I'm OFF my Fentanyl patch!! Woo freakin hoo!
I went into the pain doc and told him I was done with all the drugs and he said "Well let's get it started" I was so happy.
I'm working on getting off the Percocet too. I should be off in a week or less! So exciting!
Second.... Drum roll please... I got into nursing school!!! I start in the fall
Bad news is school related. Financial aid didn't give me enough money for my first semester... How that works I'll never understand. We make good money, which makes it so we can't qualify for anything, but we also have bills out the wazoo, plus my oldest son (17 yrs old) in college too. Needless to say, I'm $5k off. Haven't quite figured that one out, but I will some how. I'm going to nursing school NO MATTER WHAT!
love it! I never, ever turn it off. I know they say to when you drive and stuff, but it's a part of me and its not being shut off
being that its cervical, closer to all those lovely nerves, I barely use any battery. It's set so low my rep said I'll probably never have to have the battery replaced because I only have to charge it every 3 weeks, and that's just being safe. I could go another week, easy. I have 4 different settings now. I usually stay on one, unless I do have a crappy day, then I may change it up.
About a month and a half ago I started losing stimulation on my left side (arm). I was told that can happen because of scarring in. So I had to go in for some adjusting and it's good to go now.
I hardly ever have any neck pain. I do have some lower back pain, but I'll deal with it until it can't be dealt with any longer.
I got a new dog! I've always wanted a Great Dane, so we did it! She 7 months old now, her name is Zoe, and she weighs a whopping 98 lbs! She's the biggest baby of a dog I've ever seen in my life. She thinks she's a darn chihuahua
she literally tries to lay on my lap, which consumes my body. We are on our second set of training classes with her and she's doing good. She's stubborn as hell, but I've been told that's a dane for ya.
there was no way I could get a dog that big and not have her trained. One good jump on me would turn into a very big problem.
Last, but not least, I've lost 23 lbs! I'm use to being super skinny, I'm 5'7" and am normally 120 lbs. Since surgeries I've gotten up to 170, which is way beyond my comfort zone. Now I'm about 147, and still going! I want to lose about 15 more and ill be happy as can be
That's all I can think to post for now. Have had a lot going on. Hope all is well with everyone!
