MY LILY WHITE...... ahhahah

........ Here's the skinny.........The Dr. wants to do another test a week from tomorrow.......CT scan with dye..... Ok .... they want to know exactly where the nerves are at that are pinched off....... Ok..... They want me to go and get the third shot and see if it gives me any relief at all. Ok....... Then I see the surgeon on May the 20. Ok............ I can do all of that.......... but........... You knew there was a but coming didn't you? While headed home I made a decision............

....... I have been moping around kinda since December when this all started. I have quit a lot of things in order not to hurt my back any further......... I have stopped walking 2-3 miles a day to help with my weight loss, I have quit using my elliptical or my total gym. I have not spent a total of 6 hours in my yard (and that is my passion) this spring! I have let a lot of things go in my house. We have worked and worked the past three years for other people and their houses and now it is time for our house and here I sit............

............... Soooooooooooooooooooo I have my tennies on and I am headed out the door for a long walk, and when I get back I am going to clean and redecorate my living room......... this afternoon if it does not rain I am going OUTSIDE with my rake and my hoe and work around my house...... and If I have time after that I will do a few minutes on the elliptical and do several stretching exercises on my total gym. I have decided not to let this slow me down to the point of going backwards...and I am an over comer and not a victim........... so there..... That is my mood today and the devil can kiss my lily white tush!!!!!!!!!!





'I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!'
I like that!
HAVE AN OVERCOMING DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My son had back problems a few years ago and the shots didn't help him at all. I think the first one did, but after that not at all. He had gotten to where his back hurt to sit, to stand, to lie flat....it just hurt no matter what position.
I don't think his was a nerve thing....I'm not really sure, but I think he had a bulging disc and there was a chip the dr. removed in surgery??? He had surgery and the dr. said he would be able to tell a huge difference immediately after surgery and it was true. He's done so well. I get really worried every time he tells me things he's gonna do. I just don't ever want to see him in that shape again. I am praying for you.
I'm glad you're getting out and about today. Take care though!
Love,
Valerie

Woo Hoo, you go girl. Be a victor, not a victim. The devil can go sit on a tack, and quit attacking you!!

Sharon Brumfield said...

I agree with you.......
he has been after mine too......
seems it has been going around.
But God is getting ready to say...IN YOU FACE to our enemy!

Vicki said...

Girl, you cracked me up with that last remark...lily white tush...LOL!
But speaking as your nurse-friend, please be gentle with yourself. I am praying for you, and hope that shot gives you some relief. (I have another friend with a herniated disc, and she's walking every day although I don't know if that's what the doc wants you to do) You have been so sweet to check on me, even when you're in pain yourself. THANK YOU. That ol' devil can kiss my southern grits, as we say down in the south...You got me all spunky and victorious tonight:-)

love you,
Vicki

I take it you had xrays. Have you ever seen a Chiropractor? How did you feel today after doing all you planned to do?

Mary said...

Denise,

I just read what Edge said about the chiropractor and girl, it it had not been for a chiropractor after my accident, I wouldn't ever have been where I am today. I went to the old fashioned bone crunching type and he worked miracles on my back and hip.

Just don't overdo it. Take your time and build it back up to where you were. I'm so glad you are casting satan behind you.

Love and hugs,
Mary

Chris said...

My first thought was woooohooo you go girl, then i thought but please do not over do it. I have a lot of health issues, so i understand your feelings in this post. I have learned over the years, that even with the health issues i can do the things i love and exercise to. ( exercise i do only because i have to in order to stay fit. lol) I however do one thing a day and spread out all i want to do over a weeks time. I listen to my body and when it says ummm Mysti slow down i have learned to do so, even though my soul wants to do more! This way i do not hurt myself, and get to do more things in the long run. My motto is do not let life slow you down, but be smart about it and listen to ones spirit and body.

Hugs and blessings to you! Keep up the positive attitude. Grinning wide.

I think this is my first visit to your blog. I am truly glad I came. I have a lot of health problems and have had for years and have always felt the way you do my ills to do not own me. They are not who I am. I love your I shall overcome attitude. I believe with God's help we can accomplish most anything. You have lifted my spirit to soaring heights this morning and for that I am so grateful. I too am going out to play in the sunshine today. Have the most beautiful and blessed Thursday ever.....Mary
