For those that don't know, I was diagnosed with RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy) by three different doctors. My knee doctor and family doctor are truly great. I am going to a pain clinic which is just throwing pain medicine at me. I am thankful for the medicine but I don't see this as a long term solution.
RSD causes pain which is localized in my left knee. My knee doctor recommended a specialist who thankfully is only 45 minutes for me. This new doctor chooses which cases he wants and so my knee doctor submitted my records for him to review.
I should know this week if the specialist will work with me. I am praying he chooses me. If he does, I should be able to see him within a month. He specializes in spinal injections which will help with the pain.
For now, I am mostly on bed rest. I was able to go to church yesterday and I enjoyed seeing my church family & friends.
I have a fun little set up with my laptop, TV and the bathroom is less than 10 feet away which is great. I am thankful I have such a flexible 'job' with ebay where I can rest if I need to.
And a few more photos from around the house.
One of my birthday presents from my mom was this vinyl quote. I love it.
See that awesome vintage humidifier? My hubby found it. I have had trouble with my throat being dry and this has made a difference. It was about $10. It may be my favorite thing in the room right now. It doesn't even match but I adore the color.
My husband & I don't really do gifts for holidays. We would rather put the money toward a vacation. But, he surprised me with a new pendant light for above the sink. He picked it out and installed it by himself. I love it.

It matches our kitchen light so well. And guess who picked this one out? Yup, my husband! He found it on clearance at Home Depot.
