Friday Morning Brief

January 20, 2023 9:22am CST
Good morning from cloudy Green Bay, Wisconsin. It was still snowing lightly this morning when I got up the first time. I went back to bed this morning for a couple more hours of sleep after taking my medication. My last post yesterday mentioned I was in pain. I called the ambulance last night. My back wouldn't stop seizing. They gave me a muscle relaxer and took X-rays. When the muscle relaxer started working, they discharged me. I had called my son to meet me at the hospital. He got me home. We stopped at the pharmacy on the way to pick up the presciption for a muscle relaxer. I didn't get to bed until after 10:30 last night when I could finally move without intense pain. I'm thankful for the nursing staff and PA that saw me last night. They referred me to a physical therapist, so I'll be getting that call soon to get it set up. So no exercise group, but she said to walk. I can do that with my walker. I'm sorry this isn't more joyous. I'm just happy the pain isn't bad right now. Thanks for reading. I hope all of you are doing well. The image belongs to me of yesterday's snow.

I'm so sorry you are hurting but glad it is better. I have had a headache for a few days now. It is hard to concentrate when that happens. Praying that you continue to mend and it doesn't come back.

@just4him You're welcome. I totally understand. I received the offer of the coupon for the prescription my eye doctor gave me. After reading the terms of accepting it, though, I declined. The company basically said to receive the coupon, I had to release all my medical data, past, present and future, to them and anyone they decided to give it to or they wouldn't give me the coupon. I'm not a privacy nut, but that was asking way too much. Nobody but my doctors and Pretty need to know my medical history or the treatment options given to me. Would you have agreed to their terms? (They told me the prescription cost was $1,281. For $500,000, I MIGHT agree to those terms but not for just over $1,000.)

Thank you. I appreciate it. They referred me to a pain management therapist. One called today to schedule, but it's further away than where I want to go. I asked if they could schedule me closer. I'll get that call next week.

I'm so sorry to hear about your back and that it resulted in a trip to the hospital. Hope it's nothing serious and that the muscle relaxer works. Back pain is no joke. Sending best wishes that you feel better soon No snow jokes from me today

@just4him the snow jokes are all in good fun Glad you're home and hope those spasms don't happen again. A few weeks ago I pulled a muscle in my back when I was taking something out of the microwave and I'm finally feeling better now. I can understand how painful it can be.

Just when everything is going good there is a monkey wrench it seems. I hope you feel better.

I am sorry to know about your health. Hope it's not something major and you may be able to get well with the muscle relaxer.

I'm really sorry to hear this. I'm glad you were able to get help. Our ambulance is very taxed at the moment and there are sometimes long delays in getting one.

I am thinking of buying a second hand walker if I see one (I saw one once, but at the time, I had no need for it yet.).

They come in handy. The one I have used to belong to my mother.
