update and WOYWW

Hope everyone is having a great week.  I haven't been on the computer for one reason or another.  Really hasn't been on my list of things to get accomplished cause it hurts too bad to sit and think!
WOYWW friends I took a picture of my desk this week and as you can see nothing is being done at all...What is WOYWW?  check it out over at Julia's blog Stamping Ground and come play with us.
Okay my desk this week...
Not a lot to see just a few dies on magnetic sheets...as few bling bits and that is about it.  I haven't made any new anything in 3 weeks.  I thought I would have the ATC done before going in the hospital happened but that was a no go!  Promise they are on my list of the first things to get done once I am better!

So what is going on with the this week?  Well I started having a lot of pain on Wednesday  night...That kind of pain that makes you moan and whine about everything!  I couldn't stand up without bladder emptying, forget passing gas, or even just sitting or lying down in one spot more then a minute or two at a time.  My doctor ordered an MRI of my back on Friday and then since it kept getting worse my dear hubby loaded me in the car and took me to the ER on Saturday.  They told me the MRI showed some abnormalities...could be blood, could be serous drainage, could be an infection so we drew lab and while my white count and CRP were elevated they would have been with just my having had surgery.  So 4 hours later and tons of drugs later...(none of which worked) they sent me home to follow up with my dr. Monday or Tuesday.  As luck would have it I had an appointment with the osteopedic surgeon about my knee on Monday so they check it all out.  I then was told I needed comeback the next day and see the neurosurgeon...

Turns out that this new procedure seems to have issues with serous drainage postop cause they peel muscle off bone etc.  The PA and Dr. said all the people having this procedure done from now one would have drains posted to prevent all the spasms etc...not much help for me right now but...got given the word on new meds and how to take them so I came home and crashed for the day.  I am about to go back t bed cause I have another appointment tomorrow at 2pm!  Hope this gets better sooner then later.

Hope everyone has a great week and I will talk at you more next week...hope that I will feel better enough this week to make a few visits...
