Just a Little One

I'm trying to blog daily, at least to keep track of my symptoms. It is probably tedious for you guys and I'm sorry. I do want to blog in a way that keeps my desired audience returning as I desperately need and wholeheartedly appreciate your concern and encouragement. But the truth of the matter is that my best entries seem to come when I just speak from the heart and don't try to put out some great literary work.

Incidentally, I didn't mention this before but my amazing daughter-in-law won second place in an essay contest at her college. She's a fabulous writer. My paternal grandmother was a great writer. My dad is a great writer. My maternal grandfather was an amazing writer. My brothers... also amazing... I figure when you add Marquee's talent in with the talent from my gene pool that Cody and Marquee's baby (whenever they decide to have one) will be a literary genius. I'm counting on it.

Anyways... left work about 45 minutes early yesterday because I reached the level of pain that makes it impossible for me to do my job properly... mostly muscle spasms and also some unpleasantness that is resulting from some of the meds I'm on. I'll spare you the details. I was having trouble sitting up, the muscle spasms were so bad. Weird because yesterday started with the searing spinal pain. This is why I'm tracking this stuff because I want to try to figure out a pattern. Today is mostly headache, shoulder pain and the piriformis syndrome - where my right butt cheek is tightened up and it's unbearable to sit. And drive. Which I have to do in approximately five minutes. Maybe I should retitle this blog "tightening the butt cheek"? No?

My friend Amy is supposed to stop by the office today. I can't wait to see her! It's been a long time. Too long.

I'm stopping by Starbucks for a treat on my way to work. I've earned it.

That's why this entry is short.

Have a great day, y'all.
