After a weekend of lush green peace and quiet, I got to spend this morning in one of these:
MRIs are generally not painful, but my back has gotten so bad that half way through I began to have muscle spasms and was blurring the pictures, so we had to stop and start over. Thankfully, only three of the 4-minute scans needed to be done again. I also had to have a few done with contrast to differentiate between scar tissue from my December surgery and my regular tissue. I see the surgeon on Wednesday. I wish I could hope that there were an option other than bolts and screws, but at this point I’m afraid that’s what I will need. My back is just very unstable. I’m fine except for when I walk — not good.
The good news is that, thanks to the hydraulics my brother installed while I was at MQX, I can quilt quite comfortably. I used to sit a lot to quilt, now I stand most of the time. That’s a much better position for me. I have a couple of easy all-overs to do this weekend, so hopefully I’ll make a dent in my backlog.
Happy weekend all!
