Jose found us!
Relentless forward progress
Good morning, youse guys!
Well, news on the spinal front: I'm getting referred for a non-surgical solution first (cortisone plus anesthetic injection) which should at least take away most of the pain and inflammation so I can be more comfortable while my body tries to heal itself. The main problem is the pressure against the nerve--the surgeon was not worried about the scoliosis at all.
So I am actually looking forward to getting poked with needles under ultrasound guidance! It's better than the pills I have to take--enough to make me rattle. Plus the OH-so-attractive sacro-iliac brace I get to wear 24/7.
I'm going in today at 1pm to get my taxes done, thank Goddess. At least it will be off my mind. I have a truly astounding inability to complete simple math accurately when it comes to tax forms.With the rental income, disabled kids and how that affects deductions, 5 different student loans 1098-E forms to track, and all the rest, the numbers just keep spinning in my head with no logic or resolution.
After 10 years of having the IRS CORRECT me every year, I switched to H&R Block.
Ah--looks like my coffee is brewed. Cross-training at the gym today. Bleh. I smell like chlorine permanently thanks to all the aqua running. I REALLY wish my gym had an underwater treadmill. You can't find one for love or money around here.
Good to see Jose on here! What's everyone else up to today?
Hi, Heather! Sorry to hear the news but I'm sure you'll tackle this just like everything else and beat it into submission! Good luck with the non-surgical treatment.

Good luck with your back, Heather.
Dang Heather, that sucks about the back. I have been gone so long I didn't know you were out like that.
Good 8 miler today for me, victory again!

Heather, after H&R does your taxes, go see the local Liberty Tax for a second look, they should review for free. The local H&Rs to us are crap.
Morning. Where is everyone today?
I was in court. sorry.
Run! Just Run!
