Not been much Help these Days......An Update, and Sorry
Sorry I've not been much help these days. Been on and off so much it feels like forever. When I say I think about all of you every day, I really mean it. I'm either hoping, wishing, or praying something, and sometimes laughing when we get the opportunity for some laughs.
My days have been so full it's hard to know where to start. I'll just say that I was given a miracle for my Son. He rolled the truck literally avoiding a head-on when the guy he was passing decided to race him (please insert every cuss word I'm not allowed to call him here. And if you've ever seen caught on tape when care flips just once, you'll understand that he was protected by power stronger than material :) So, we've been blessed, and I'm truly grateful.
I've been getting series of epidural injections for my jacked up neck. Many of you may know that I've commented on it on and off for years. My c-spine has had me stuck, cricked, jammed, and all the pain inbetween, and when it went into the side of my head I was at the docs office willing to take whatever they had. So, short of surgery, injections were my option, and they have been a blessing. I highly recommend them for those who suffer with herniations, spurring, disk ridges, nerve pain and damage. If the offer comes - TAKE IT! What a life changer - someone hollar at me please for waiting so long.
I'm heading down south later this week for my Granpops funeral. He turned 89 two weeks ago, and last night he passed peacefully. So, will celebrate his life with a visit, and then spend time with my Mom and just make a vaca out of it. Will be hard to be away from my family. My family means everything to me, and I've not been away from them for this amount orf scheduled time since my Granmom died. Surely I sound like a sissy, but I'll really miss them. But, like you all, I know they will take care of each other, and hopefully they eat well, lol
Anywho - been wanting to give you the latest on me, I never seem to get the opportunity to do so. I'm doing well, really. Though I admit I've not been good with my injecting. Something i promised myself, and the neuro I would get back ontop of once I get through the thick of these few months.
Love you all, and will be around for a day or two, then off the grid until after 14JULY.
(((((Hugs)))))))) and know I'll be thinking of you :)
I think everyone understands life is busy, so please don't apologize, Hon.
God granted you a miracle that day He saved your son. And I am thankful to Him for granting you that wonderful miracle.
Yes, I've seen accidents where cars have flipped, so I know God granted you and your son, a wonderful miracle.
I'm thankful the injections are giving you pain relief. I prayed so hard that you would get pain relief. No, no one wants to holler at you. I think we all want to say, "Hurray!"
I'm so very sorry that your Gradpops has passed away, but he is in Heaven with Our Lord, and with your Grandmom. It's so hard to lose our family.
I've been to so many funerals in the past few years. So few of us left.
No, you don't sound like a sissy. You love your family, and I understand because when my Dad died in '97 I spent the summer in my bedroom, crying. And when Mom joined him 9 months later, I was is such shock, I couldn't cry. I had to plan her funeral, and I felt like I was in a fog.
You'd better get back on schedule with your injections-I need you.
You said I can't go anywhere, well, neither can you.
Wow! You've had a lot to deal with. Like Alex said, life gets in the way. You don't need to apologize for it.
I'm so relieved that your son is okay. And I don't think it's "sissy" at all to miss your grandparents. I still miss my gramma. I hope you are able to do as you said, celebrate his life- and his contribution to yours.
I am going to find out more about the epidural injections you mention. I have six bulging discs in my c-spine from years of kyphoscoliosis.
We'll all look forward to hearing from you, when your schedule allows for it.
I am sorry for your loss. 89 years, wow!-amazing! So glad you had so many years of memories. Never apologize. Life gets busy and can throw some real curve balls. We are still here and I am thinking of you and your family.
I really do understand. By the grace of God your son is alive! Changes things doesn't it? My son was hit by a fire truck about a year ago and when I arrived at the scene I truly thought I was going to lose it. I felt at that moment my heart was broken but the kids were alive. It changed my thinking about what is important in life, I think, forever. So glad he is ok. Your family is ok-that means everything. Now as soon as you can, concentrate on you too. You are a part of that family equation.
And a, "sissy" you are not! Many ((((hugs)))) your way! Be safe and enjoy your family on your trip.
Praise God for the blessing of protecting your son! God is good!
Wow! What a blessing that your grandpop had 89 years and I'm sure he made a difference in many peoples lives and was a blessing.
Celebrating his life w/loved ones is great.:)
Now he and your granmom can be together again.Their legacy lives on!
I hope you enjoy your time with family and the vacation that the Lord knows you need.:)
Continue to take care of yourself, try to stay cool and savor the time!
Also, glad to hear the injections are working.
My deepest condolences in the loss of your Grandfather Shelley. He must have lived a full life in his 89 years and I believe that when you just fade away in your sleep you are very blessed and sure to get wings when you reach your resting place.
I hadn't heard anything about your son...thank goodness he is alright! Caught on Tape must be running through your head regularly girl...very scary!
I wasn't aware that an epidural injection would help with nerve pain but will keep it in mind for sure girl! Glad you are getting some relief from the pain you have been suffering!
Hope you have a good trip honey and that you get in a good visit with your Mom. Just remember that your family is only a Skype or a phone call away and remember that distance makes the heart grow fonder...just think how much appreciation you will be shown when you get back! teehee You take care girl and I hope we talk soon!
So sorry to read about your loss Shell, and so happy to hear that your son is okay. This is so much to deal with at the same time. I am very close with my family, so sissy, I understand that well when things like this are going on.
I hope your neck is better after the injections.
Thank you all so very very much for all of your thoughts, hugs, support! I'm truly thankful for all of my blessings, and good friends here. You all mean alot to me and are always here :) Thank you.
I will enjoy my time away, and see you all on my return. Keep on keepin on peeps! Fight a good fight when you can, go to the doc when you can't or something is not right! And, most of all be good to yourselves!
Words can not express the empathy I feel for you during the "scare" of your son, the death of your grandpops (so so sorry), and your physical pain that you've finally are doing something about it. I hope it works for you to keep you comfortable!
I am so very sorry for the loss of your grandfather :( you are no sissy. As you know I recently losses my mom only 8 months after losing my brother. The only comfort I have is knowing they are together with the Lord, just as your grandparents are now together.
I am so happy to hear that you are getting some pain relief from the injections. I hope you continue to feel better.
The greatest blessing is that your son is OK after that horrible event. (sigh of relief)
I love you all so much :) Thank you so much for your hugs, good humor, and wishes.
FL is HOT hot! Yikes! But, planning to be floating on a pool in the days to come!
oxoxoxo to you all, and hope your bodies are being have!!!!
Aw Shell I'm sorry yo hear about your grandfather. Its always very sad, and hard, to lose a loved one. How wonderful that you had him in your life for so many years. It's obvious you are so grateful for that.
You sure have had more than your fair share of stuff lately...glad to hear you've found some relief for your neck pain. It's about time, after suffering for so long with it.
Hope you're staying comfortable in the heat.
We absolutely understand my friend. I had no idea about your son, and YES , there is and was a higher being looking out for him. I had one look out for me back when I was 18 years old too, so, I do really believe it. So, glad that he is alright.
Your Granpops, will for sure be welcomed in heaven, and will be having tea with your Granmom. They will sit down and look over and watch you with your family, and smile, and be proud of you and what you and doing, and what you have become. A loving, caring individual, who is loved by alot of people.
They will thank the higher people, for the gift of YOU in their life, and will always be there for you to talk to, whenever you want. Now you can chat in your car, in the bathtub, or anywhere else you want, cause they will always be there.
Think of them in the sunshine. When you feel the warmth, think of them hugging you, and patting you on the back to keep on keeping on.
