It’s 12:15am and I really need to be asleep but I just wanted to check in before I turn in for the night.
Richie & I have to be up at 5am and on the road by 6am on our way to Birmingham where he is having a steroid epidural thing done to his back. He has 3 bulging and 1 torn vertebral disks that are causing him tremendous pain and this treatment is supposed to give him some great relief.
We really hope it does.
This is only a stop-gap measure to help him make it until we find out better what is wrong with my heart and what I’m going to have to have done (balloon angioplasty? stints? who knows?) Once we get me in better shape then we can focus on getting his surgery so that he can be well, too.
It’s just one thing after another. I hate to whine, I absolutely hate it! Yet, here I am doing it…again. Just like I whined and cried to my sister tonight. This health stuff is so serious and overwhelming that it just takes over your mind completely. At least, that’s what it has done to me lately.
Well, thanks for letting me just spill a little.
Anyway, by the time most of you read this, we’ll be on our way to Birmingham and I just wanted to ask that y’all keep Richie in your thoughts today…he could really use some relief from all the pain he’s enduring daily right now.
I’ll be back with y’all in a day or two.
Peace & Love,
