Friday Fun ~ Downtime Again

Downtime again for me this week while I do without my AFO until Monday. My husband had another four nerves in his neck burned and I'm exhausted, but his pain level is finally down to a 6 out of 10 instead of 11 out of 10 even with the morphine.

For Mother's Day, I let everyone wait hand and foot on me for a change. I am still exhausted from my body trying to do against the spasticity even with the sleep I got Wednesday. The kids ran all my errands and took care of the hubby for me. The grandkids did yard work and gardening for me. I still haven't figured out how to use hedge clippers with one hand. It was a nice day off supervising them all. My private little army of drones. I was Queen Bee and not the biotch kind either.

To top it all off, I've developed a pinched nerve in my neck from having to turn my whole body to look left for cars when driving. Add a fibromyalgia spike into the mix, and that pretty much describes my week. Pain, on fire burning sensations from my neck to down both arms, high muscle tone and cramping,constant nagging headache, and every little thing touching my skin hurts. It has not been a good week. Will the 23rd every get here? That's when I see my neurologist again and get my Botox.

Still reading Letters to Zerky. Maybe by next Friday I'll post the review for this book. Still 100 pages to go and I hate to put it down to do other things.

If all else fails, I've now got 50 unread books on my Kindle and hard drive.
Y'all and have a good weekend.

I'm sorry just about everything hurts! Glad your kids are willing to help.

Alex, that's the beauty of family if you raise them with the right values. Of course, old mom and pop are always available wit a shoulder to cry on, vent to, and laugh with...not to mention fairly loose purse strings when it is needed.
