And here we are in the early morning again. Sigh. Why you ask? Because a coworker has to take her granddaughters to school at 8am and she is scheduled to work at 7am. So I said that I would go in and work a few hours for her so she could do that. Then I will do a little running before going home for a few hours then coming back to be closing manager at 1pm. Hopefully I will be sleeping til my regular time the rest of the week.
So the MRI was yesterday morning and I received a call a few hours later asking me to call. After a little bit of phone tag I finally got to talk to a nurse. Apparently I have arthritis and a severely pinch sciatica nerve. I have another muscle relaxer to pick up after my first shift (I am expected to take both muscle relaxers every eight hours despite the fact that they make me go to sleep) and they are contacting a pain clinic in Traverse. Apparently I am getting some kind of shot. Hopefully it works better than the cortisone shot I had to get for my shoulder. It hurt to get it but did absolutely nothing for the pain. I am also nervous as it is in my spine so…
I called the paper and asked if someone else could take my meeting last night. They found someone who could. I thanked them both. I was gong to call my parents but in the end I just spent time with the girls. I fell asleep twice outside I have been so tired. But after my naps I did feel a little better. The girls and I watched “National Lampoon’s European Vacation” and then “Goonies.” It was my first time seeing “Goonies” and I had fun with it.
Nuts. I just looked at the clock and I need to get rolling. Thanks for reading! I hope you have a great day! Be safe!
