Good Evening FRIENDS ! Where on earth did the week go ? I had BIG plans of blogging /reading EVERY day however , for whatever reason , LIFE HAPPENED and I just didn't make it to blog land :( ! I'm so sorry , hopefully the bitter cold predicted for the weekend will give me a lil extra time to get caught up !
So, as for the week ...Monday and Tuesday were HORRIBLE pain days , so I spent as much time in bed as possible . Wednesday I had an afternoon appointment with the new neurosurgeon for my MRI results . Upon reviewing the test and seeing me unable to sit in the exam room ,instead leaning on the counter bawling like a baby , he feels my pain is intense and real but ... the test did not show what he thought it would ! Apparently he originally felt like I most likely had an infection in the soft tissue between the vertebrae or a narrowing of the nerve canal . So...since MRI did NOT show anything alarming he has now ordered additional tests , one of which will be a CT scan of the bone in the lumbar, and sacral regions of my lower spine . He feels that I quite possibly have a "structural issue" with the bone? My hardware has loosened ? My fusion may not be solid? Who knows ...I just hope they find an answer quick , the pain I've been dealing with recently is worse than any I've EVER had to deal with and my patience is running very thin !

Do you remember that " creepy" doll head I shared last week ?
Well....she's now quite the "CONVERSATION PIECE" , a OOAK creepy creation for Princesses teacher ...a connoisseur of the strange but fun! That ole doll head is now so "creepy cool" the teacher even let out a SQUEAL of delight when she unwrapped her ! Or was it a CACKLE??? LOL Either way ... I'm pretty sure , I got an A in the 3rd grade today !!
The kids finished off personalized necklaces, made cootie catchers, picked out a book to keep at home , I read them a few Valentine books , they handed out cards and treats , then enjoyed a healthy snack ! Though the school considers " cookies, cakes, sweets, treats etc.... contraband" and not acceptable on school property ... the kids can receive some of those items but they must be taken home and consumed there ! Their sweet talented teacher made each child a GORGEOUS sparkly , Personalized ,YUMMY cookie to take home to enjoy ! I always enjoy my time with the kids at school, but boy does it ever wear me out !!
