As I was talking to the referral nurse the other day in regard to me seeing a neuro surgeon, she goes on to tell me that if they schedule an appointment for me six weeks out then I will know that it is not too serious, however, if they want to see me immediately then I will know something is up. Well, she called me today and I have an appointment to see the neuro surgeon on Tuesday so…something must be up! But, I already know this from the pain I am experiencing!
My concern is, how did this happen? How did I get tears and protusions and extrusions in my back? I didn’t fall recently, no accidents or any trauma to my back? And right before I’m scheduled to do a 5k!! Right when I’m trying to get back in to walking and right when I’m trying to be as healthy as I can!! My body has been so weak these last several months and I seem so sensitive to anything and everything though so who knows! Thankfully Tim is already preparing to come with me to this appointment.
So, while this news was discouraging, today was also the day that our article came out in the local newspaper, although there were a few errors! Haha! First off, parking was not the most impressive thing to me about the fair…that was Tim 😉 We were both just so taken back by all of the people we didn’t even know that had seen our photos on the wall and had stopped us to congratulate us. All of the fair board members included, even came to shake our hands! The generosity and sincerity of people and the fair board was amazing!
On another note, the pet cow in the picture is not named “cowie” but she is named “mine” although Leah did explain to the reporter that she has another pet cow named “Kali” as well so just a miscommunication thing. Asher and Leah once again stole the show with their smiles on the hay bales and with the cow…which we were very surprised Asher hugged the cow given the fact that he typically just screams if any type of animal gets too close!
We are supposed to touch base with the reporter again when my book comes out so maybe I will have another article to share soon…if I actually have the guts to call him when it comes out! 😊
Hope everyone has a great Friday and is able to enjoy the long holiday weekend!
