A quick update---

I am still in the hospital, and I have to tell you --- my pain this time is so, SO much worse than ever before. I understand it is because he took out two long  rods and the last of the screws.... and then put a smaller rod  back in , with one screw at the top and one at the bottom. My Doc said my extra pain is due to all the inflammation kicked up by that. Not to mention - this is the third time he has had to cut from T3  to S1. That's really, really long insicion, and there had to be scar tissue by now. All I know is, all of this equals OMGOSH, OMGOSH, OMGOSH!! I'm barely hanging on. Plus, I'm in such pain, I cannot tell if my original pain in the shoulders problem is gone or not! It hurts there like always, but it also hurts absolutely everywhere else!! If I do still have pain there, be here is NO reason for it, all the screws are gone. Please keep praying for me and keep the fingers crossed!! I'm trying so, so hard to hang on. The pain medications only do so much. I'll keep you posted... with any luck, I can go home tomorrow - Thursday. At this time, it's not all that important, but once this pain is calmer, it sure will be.

I'm out.

Thanks for stopping.

OMG, I can't believe you found the strength to drop by and update us, but it surely is appreciated. I am so, so sorry about all the pain you're enduring, I know that pain meds just take the edge off. I am praying hard that it settles down in the next few days and you start to notice some improvement. Bodywise, it's got to be better to have that extra hardware out of there!! Healing is going to take time, just stay focused on brighter days to come, and the kitties who are waiting to snuggle with you! Much love always, Josie XOXO
