I cannot freaking believe that the end of January is already here. At this rate 2012 is going to pass even faster than the previous year. January was a very crazy month filled with upheaval so I apologize now for not updating more often. I have scoliosis and starting around the beginning of December the pain got to be constant. Then a had a few days in the 2nd week of January where I couldn’t even walk, sitting up for the next week was even painful. Now after several weeks of chiro appointments I’m pain free unless I’m on the bus. After 90 minutes of bouncing and jostling, even with wearing a brace, I’m usually achy. I hope that will ease off soon too. It usually comes and goes in stages and only gets really bad every two years or so.
Then a little over a week ago I had to call an ambulance for my husband. He’d been sick awhile, recovering from bronchitis and his bounce-back was slower than we’d both wished. He’d had an appointment with his doctor the next week for a follow up when he came to me with swelling in his legs. Terrible swelling. One of them looked like a Lincoln Log. There was absolutely no definition to his knee or ankle. Given his past heart history I wasn’t taking any chances. His blood pressure was ridiculously high, the oxygen level in his blood low and he had congestive heart failure.
