Busy, Busy, Busy

Well, last week I had another week off from work, but it wasn't restful at all. On 4 of the 5 weekdays, I either had doctor appointments or tests scheduled! On Wednesday (my only day at home), my leg was hurting so badly that I barely moved from the recliner all day long.

The good news is that there's light at the end of the spinal surgery has finally been scheduled! *doing modified version of the happy dance due to leg pain* I'll have surgery on November 11. Is it weird to look forward to having surgery? Well....I can't honestly say that I'm looking forward to surgery, but I'm sure looking forward to getting rid of this leg pain!

The only good thing about having so many medical appointments is that I got some sock knitting done during the time in waiting rooms. I also met lots of nice people. Still not my idea of a fun vacation, though. *LOL*

I went back to work Monday....luckily not many things had piled up, but I've really been dealing with an awful lot of pain this week. I don't know if the cyst in my back has become larger, or the nerves that it's pressing on have become more irritated, but something's getting worse. At least I know that 3 weeks from today I'll be in deep blissful slumber, and my surgeon will be removing the cause of all this grief!
