My RSD has been really bad. We had my father-in-law's memorial, two doctor's appointments and four chiropractor's appointments since last Friday. All week my wrists and hands hurt too much to type. The doctor gave me a stronger pain medicine and I woke up with a bit less pain today. It still hurts but I did want to blog a bit.
|My left knee has RSD and you can see the left leg is smaller than my right.|
The RSD is making my body shake. The Lyrica has calmed that down some and I am thankful to be taking it.
These thoughts and pictures are in no particular order.
|I made my own bed! Isn't it pretty?|
|I am loving these silk pillowcases. My husband "stole" one and is using it on his bed as well.|
|This is my new medication. It is a patch that contains pain medicine. I am up to 50mcg which is making me somewhat nauseous and lightheaded but it is helping with the pain.|
|I have tried a lot of things to distract myself from the pain this week including doing my nails. The bright pink color was sent to me from one of my readers. Thanks Jen!|
|My legs get cold and so I need to wear socks. But walking around the house without shoes kind of hurts. And so I look like this. Ha.|
|My ebay inventory is down to just 7 bins and most of those aren't full. I haven't been able to list in awhile.|
|My doctor's office has this gorgeous original Fiestaware. Isn't it stunning?|
|The headstone of my father-in-law & mother-in-law.|
|We visited the grave where my mother-in-law was buried and sprinkled my father-in-law's ashes there this week.|
|This is my new bed. Obviously I have sheets over this pattern. But the other night I woke up and had swirls imprinted on my arms. I must have been sleeping pretty hard.|
This week includes two doctor's appointments including one with a new doctor. I am hoping to have the pain medicine work. The RSD is now in my left knee, back, both wrists and hands and possibly my right hip. There is no real cure for RSD but it is possible to have it go into remission. And of course God could heal it which is what we are praying for.
If I am feeling well enough an ebay post will be written this week. Thanks!
