Doctor Visit…and Friday Favorites #8

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Oh boy…WHAT A DAY!  I’m TIR-ED right about now.

Worked last night and then came home and had to stay up because Kimm had her doctor’s appointment at 9:15 am.  The appointment was a follow-up for her hands (after her second carpal tunnel surgery).  Basically both of her hands are numb at this point again.  And since she fell, both of her legs are numb…up past her hip.  Not a good thing.  So I wanted to make sure that the doctor knew about both issues.

I’m so glad we went because the doctor was concerned about not only the hands, but also the numbness in the legs.  She ordered an MRI scan of her lower back for today, as well as some blood work, and a nerve test of all extremities that will be next week.

So we went home, ate a very quick lunch and then went to get the blood work drawn and the MRI done.  It went pretty okay…I mean, Kimm only tried climbing out of the MRI machine once 🙂  She HATES feeling enclosed and they put her in head first, which was a bad idea.  Once they flipped her around, and put her in feet first, things went much better.

Now we just have to wait for the results.

Came home and at that point I was practically sleeping…I had been up way longer than I normally am.

Nothing a short nap couldn’t alleviate!

Afterwards, we ate dinner and thankfully the remainder of the night has been low-key.

I REALLY hope they can figure out what is going on with this neck/back issue since the numbness is getting really frustrating for Kimm, and thus for me.


Anyways, here are my favorites from around the web this week…ENJOY!
