I haven't felt like blogging because I am down with a bad case of sciatica in my left leg. I finally gave up on my home remedies and went to the Dr. this morning and he put me on Prednasone. He said I was doing the right things....Ibuprofen and heating pad plus rest but the nerve is too irritated and it needs something stronger to kick this from my system.
It hurts if I sit too long so I don't like being at the computer and it hurts if I stand and the pain has awakened me when I sleep. So, I am doing as the doctor said and will try to stretch as little as possible so I don't strain the nerve anymore, get some rest (I've already taken more naps in the past three days than I have all year!), take my meds, and he says that within a couple days, I should see some improvement. Boy, I sure hope so! I haven't had pain like this since I had a kidney infection almost 40 years ago. I gave birth to two kids and it didn't hurt this much! I am going to have to miss our Crazy Quilting gathering tomorrow and I'm the one who planned it. Boo hoo! Okay, I will quit feeling sorry for myself as I am just glad I have a doctor I can go to and a good bed to rest in. Others are in worse shape all over the world.
I will be back in a few days then and show you pictures of Pandora's garden quilt show. My daughter and grandson are to be here this weekend so I need to be rested for their arrival. It's Sauerkraut Days here in Henderson this weekend, so I need to be able to walk (and right now that is really difficult) to our favorite spot where we will watch the parade. Back soon......
