YAY finally SOME (not all) answers

Not much to report. I did go see my doctor today and she gave some answers as to why things are going the way they are. Basically she thinks I have severe sciatica and something else I can not pronounce. she said she is not that concerned about what they found on my ovary but she does not want to rule it out for fear that she may be wrong and therefore that is why I am going to the ob. If the OB gives that everything is going well with my girl parts then FINALLY she is going to send me to a pain specialist. I originally thought I went there in the first place but that was not the case. She said the pain specialist can A. give me a nerve block right in the spot where it hurts (which I have not gotten yet). B. Somehow burn the nerve (little scared as to how you do that). So I have hope that I am going to start feeling better soon! I was starting to think I was crazy. She assured me I was not. She said the reason we have been going through all this other stuff before sending me to a pain specialist was because they wanted to rule out all the bad stuff before making me pain free. She said pain is there to tell you something is wrong and if we numbed that pain and then found out something was seriously wrong then there would be problems. I think that is perfectly logical, however, I just wonder why she did not explain this to me in the first place.

I finally got my short term disability approved and received a check...whew! That takes a load off my mind. In a couple weeks I will have a new baby in the house. Well a baby of the furry variety. My MIL is going down south to see my niece graduate so she is bringing her puppy pomeranian. Oh he is so cute however he is a puppy and therefore very wild! It will be interesting to see how my 2 dogs and cat will react to him when he comes over.

I am so bummed, it has been so nice here the last week or so and now tonight we are suppose to get rain and tomorrow snow! Come on it is spring it is not time for snow anymore. :(

I know you are all getting sick of the back pain woes, so hopefully it will be getting better soon. Then I can start back with the infertile woes. The one good thing about the back pain is it has really had me less focused on my lack of babies and more thankful that I can lay in bed and not worry about taking care of children. However I would much rather it be the other way around.

Well I hope you all have a great weekend!

Ugh, back pain is so distracting from the "rest" of your life. I'm sorry you're struggling with it, and hope it gets better very soon. Enjoy the visiting furball! ICLW.
