My mom hurt her back on Friday and I have been busy at the shop.
This morning, Tuesday, she was still in pain, and her leg was going numb, to the point that Dad took her to the emergency room. Turns out she broke a piece of cartilage in her back between two bones and it has been pushing against her nerve endings. The back specialist will see her tomorrow and let us know if she has to have surgery or not!! YUCK! The one good thing is that it has nothing to do with her cancer, just her arthritis. The Doctor actually said it could have happened to any of us!! So we at least can breath easier that the cancer is not doing something funny! If you are new to this blog, my mom has been battling breast cancer for the last 10 years and is doing GREAT!
But she could use all the good thoughts and wishes you can send her way! She hates not being busy and never, ever sits still. I brought her a stack of magazines and a couple of books, but she is already chomping at the bit to go home, even with how much pain she is in.
