I went to see Dr Frascone today at 8am. Received a shot in the top of my right foot. Hopefully I am almost finished with these shots. My foot seems to be doing much better. It's difficult to walk after these shots, but by tomorrow, I should be good as new.
Having some serious issues with my left side today. I can't turn my neck, my wrist and hand on my left side. My knees hurt, my back hurts,and it feels like I have a pinched nerve in my neck. My right wrist and hand hurts too, but not as bad as my left. What's Going On?
The nurse from Dr. Hall's called and said he wants me to go back on Zocor because my cholesterol levels are extremely high. 247 mg/dL Coronary Heart Disease Risk 5.3% Ratio and Sodium Levels Low 135 mMol/L. I told the nurse NO! I cannot go back on Zocor because of what happened the last time. She said she would talk to the Dr. and call me back. She called back 5 minutes later and said he wants me to start taking 1- 10 mg Zetia pill daily. I said I won't do that either. I am already on 4 medications, and really don't want to start a 5th. I asked her if he could prescribe something natural, a vitamin or something. She said she would have to ask him and would call me back. She called back 10 minutes later and said he recommended Omega 3 Fish Oil...take 3 - 1000 mg a day. I said Yes! I would go out and buy them today. I did, and I took my first 3 pills later that day.
Happy 16th Birthday Logan! It was such a beautiful, perfect day! 76 degrees! He had his first College Success Session today from 1 - 2:30. He had his picture taken at college for his ID card. After we dropped him off at college, Ron and I went to Best Buy and bought a 50" TV. After we picked Logan up at 2:30. we came home and moved TVs around. We gave Logan the 40" from our room, moved the one from the living room into our bedroom, and hooked the new 50" up. We then left at 5:30 to meet Ty and Dylan at Texas Roadhouse to celebrate Logan's birthday.
First day of Logan's Junior Year started today. After I dropped Logan off at the bus stop, I came home and got ready to go to Mercy Ft. Gratiot for my 3 MRIs. I left at 8 to make it, and arrived at 8:30. My MRIs didn't start until 9:30. Had 3 of them done with prescribing Dr. Guertin. Brain first, then Cervical, then Lumbar. 1/2 hour per MRI. I was in the machine until 11:00. Seems weird, but I actually started to feel better on my way home. The constant pain in my lower back seemed to subside. So Weird.
Left home at 8:15 for my Dr. appointment with Dr. Frascone at 9:15. Arrived at 9:05. Received a shot in the bottom of my right foot. OW! Foot was burning again for the rest of the day. When I got home, I called Mercy back about registering for my MRIs.
