Good evening everybody, Just a short entry to let you know I am still around.
I haven't been doing anything of interest lately. Not even able to get out and walk any. I got a call returned from my doc this morning. I had called asking him to call several days ago. I wanted to know if a block on the right side would be worth the side effects of the steroids that makes my heart race and also skip beats. He said if it did that to me then he would not do one. He said he doesn't know of anything else he would be able to do to help me in any way. He suggested that I stay in touch with my local doc and see if there is any kind of medication he would give me. Since I can't take pain or anti inflammatory meds that is not going to do me a lick of good except go get a torodol shot when it gets really bad. I have been using the ice packs and staying off my feet as much as possible to combat the pain.
The weather here in Alabama is very cold for us. It got down close to 16 degrees the last two nights and the days have been cold and windy. It did get into the 40's today and supposed to get in the low 60's tomorrow so hopefully it is beginning to warm up a little more.
Sorry that I don't have anything of interest to report.
Have a blessed night everyone. Helen
