Merry CHRISTmas

From our home to yours. I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday! Even though I never got to finish my shopping, everyone was very happy with their gifts & our day has been wonderful so far. I'm still waiting for Shawn & hopefully my granddaughter to show up. We'll be having dinner around 5:00 and then we'll probably just spend the evening at home with some hot cocoa & movies.
Thank-you to all of my blogging friends for all of the prayers you've been saying for me while I'm going through these health problems. I got the results of the neck MRI back & I have bulging discs in my neck, which has been the cause to all of the pain throughout my whole body. I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon on January 6th, so until then, I just have to cope with the pain and keep the Percocet on hand. For the past 2 days, the pain went from my feet & is now in my right hand, making it very hard for me to even type. I've been wearing one of my old bowling braces on it as it's the only thing that's working to keep me from moving it so much & being in too much pain. Thanks again.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays,
Benita

You poor thing! The kidney stone is bad enough without all that other mess. I suffer from bulging disks too, in my back, so know the pain well and it's not fun. Here's hoping you get better soon and have a Happy New Year Benita!
