I really liked the doctor I saw yesterday. Very “down to earth” and open. Great sense of humor. Posters of animal butts all over his office. I’m glad I went for a second opinion. He was very much against doing surgery and did not think it would help. In fact, he told me it would most likely make matters worse. So I’m glad I went. I’ve been given a medicinal routine to follow for three weeks and then I have to go back. I asked him why I’m having trouble and he said, “You have nerve damage. Not sure why. As we say in my line of work…Sh*t happens and sometimes we just don’t know why.” (Hee hee! Snort! fart(?))
At any rate, the medicinal route is not going to be easy. I have to avoid drinking anything for two hours, take a couple of pills with a tiny sip of water and then not drink anything for another two hours. Twice daily. That’s eight hours a day that I can’t have anything to drink. I woke up at 2:00 a.m. and took two pills last night. Don’t know how I’m going to do it today. Maybe nothing after lunch….???? Anyway, right now my coffee tastes great.
I’m feeling a lot better about things. Going to try to break the sorry ass (pun intended) routine I’ve been following. I think I deserve a reward today. I’m going to be good about eating healthy and reward myself by visiting the new JC Penney’s outlet that just opened after work today. I need clothes for the cruise. We leave in ten days!
