I was the driver not the patient this time.

Mike had a steroid injection into his back for a bulging disk today. He wasn't allowed to drive himself so for once I got to be the driver not the victim (I mean patient)
He is doing great, no side effects, his back feels about the same but then they said give it 3 to 5 days for the steroid to work.
I hope it helps his back the Dr was less than sure it would, Mike says he isn't in a lot of pain but the Dr looking at his back says he should be. (Mike says he is stoic I said he is just to stubborn to feel pain LOL!)
Of course being at the surgical center and worrying about him made me extra tired today. That's always fun. Gotta love mono!

Hey Carin! OK, I vote you put the 'stoic' hero to bed with a hot wheat pack and you curl up in front of a good movie with a glass of wine and some chocolate! Though I should be more sympathetic, since I've had a pinched nerve in my lower back this arvo/evening - it comes and goes, carrying out guerrilla attacks on me when I least expect it!! Oh dear! Just falling to pieces!! Hope you all feel better soon! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)

Darn. You guys need some healthy mojo over there. Hope you are both feeling better soon. (too bad you aren't too stubborn to feel tired) ;)
