Welcome Back to The Saturday Scoop 19!!!
Where we talk about D.I.Y. projects, recipe’s, books, movies and all things about home!
I’ve had a week of appoitments for my husband. Easter weekend my husband woke up on Friday night with exscurusting back pain with the pain radiating down his leg. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him in so much pain.
He didn’t want to go to the E.R. so he took tylenol thinking it would help, it didn’t. We used hot and icy on his back and leg.
Later on we tried heat and ice but there wasn’t anything to stop this pain. He finally decided to go to urgent care even though I wanted him to go to the E.R..
Well there wasn’t much they did except to give him a very low does steroid and told him to take Tylenol. I guess they no longer give pain medication at urgent care we were told.
Needless to say there wasn’t anything working, and it was a very long sleepless weekend for both of us.
Finally on Monday after speaking with his doctor and being told to use Motrin 800 he was able to feel some relief. His doctor had us go right to the hospital for a doppler ultra sound of his leg to rule out a blood clot.
Thank God he did not have a blood clot. He was able to get in on Wednesday to see his doctor. His doctor order blood work, e-xray’s and an M.R.I.
We have had many appotiment’s this past week. We finally have a diagnosis and a plan. He’ll start physical therapy this coming Monday, hopefully this will work if not he’ll need surgery. He was diagnosised with a degenerative bone disease.
He’ll be off work for a bit which I think that bothers him the most!
It’s so hard watching someone go through that much pain and there isn’t anything you can do to help or what your doing isn’t helping.
He is finally feeling better and is on the road to recovery, we hope! So if you could please say a little prayer for him I would really appreciate it, thank you!
So needless to say some of the projects I was working are a little behind. I had planned on sharing these on The Saturday Scoop 19!
This little fruit bowl planter I found thrifting. I like the planter and had an Idea so I have started to work on disembling it.
My powder room, wallpaper, mirror, new towels and washcloths, and ordered a light fixture. Pictures to come soon!
I’ve also started a project in my backyard, I have a vision for a picnic area! I’m still working on a few items!
