Here’s our silly girl with her new tooth (pretend of course)! She says she looks like Nanny McPhee. Well, it was better than the Dracula teeth – glad she didn’t win those! LOL
On another note, I wanted to thank all of my friends for their offers and helping out with childcare while I’m dealing with this pinched nerve. It could not be more appreciated. I did have my MRI Thursday morning and since Holden was sick, Brad stayed home from work to watch him while I had my appointment. I can totally see how people get claustrophobic in those things. I just closed my eyes and tried to have happy thoughts. Thank goodness for loud music and headphones. I’ve had an MRI on my knee, but this was totally different being put in that tube. I kept thinking I was in a Grey’s Anatomy episode and people were looking at my spine, getting excited while they tried to decipher how they were going to operate. LOL Being so still for over 30 minutes made my arm and hand feel even more numb than usual. It made for an even harder night than I usually have too. I couldn’t go to sleep because of the pain and then I was up at 2:30 a.m. reeling from how much my arm/neck/shoulder hurt. I finally passed out around 6:30 a.m. and then wouldn’t you know it, Kasen was up at 7:00 a.m. The sleep deprivation is killing me. It’s not like I can even take a nap when I have two little ones depending on me. After more than two weeks of this, I really hit my wall yesterday.
Now that I’ve had my x-rays and my MRI, I will have another appointment with my doctor on Tuesday to see exactly what is causing all of this pain. I begged him to help me last week and I think I’ll cry this time if he doesn’t give me some hope. My left shoulder was hurt a few years ago, but nothing can compare to this pain. I was sobbing in the car today on the way home from Kasen’s Mothers’ Day Out program, and Kasen said, “Mommy, I’m SOOO sorry that you’re hurting so badly.” Awwww, my sweet girl. Okay, after all that talk and just that little bit of typing, I’m done – off to get my ice pack and just pray that someday soon I’ll get some pain free sleep. I hope I never take that for granted again!
See ya’ later!!
