A Chilly Monday

The Facet Joint injections Vic had lasted almost 2 weeks. Unfortunately the pain returned yesterday and really came on with a vengeance tonight. We see the doc again Friday and will see what he thinks we should do. From all the reading I’ve done, this may take 2 – 3 rounds of the injections to get relief. We’ll just have to wait and see. The injections took her down for 4 days last time. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

This shot was taken about an hour before she got sick yesterday. The girls just had to pile on Mommy. They truly love thier Mom.

On the shoe front: I’ve tried out my new shoes and they are hurting my feet. My knees and arches have been fine, but the outside edge of both feet, about 2 inches behind the little toe hurts with each step. Not sure if this is from the pronation correction or what. I’ve emailed Big Peach to see if they have any thoughts. The shoes only have a couple of miles on them, all on a treadmill. I'm sure I'll have no problem finding my way there this time. Although, before I leave it may be a good idea to invest in some GPS technology.

Yesterday was work day around the house. Since Vic was in bed most of the day, me and the girls did some maintenance. I fixed some loose molding in the kitchen and replaced an exhaust fan that had died. Then all of us went ‘nail pop’ hunting. Hailey had the hammer, Alyssa had the sandpaper, I had the spackle and Gracie was our spotter. We didn't get to paint yesterday, but will get that done this coming weekend.

And here's a pic from the other day when Gracie was channeling Elton John.

All for now.

I'm so sorry Vic is hurting again. Hope the next round is more helpful.

Could your shoes be too narrow? I wear wides and the outsides of my feet hurt before I realized that I needed them (or if my feet swell a lot, but that is another story).

I laughed out loud at your directional prowess. : ) I've been lost over there many, many times and had to call Natalie for directions.

Could be wide feet. Started out at BPRC with EEE's, but they felt loose, so went with EE's.
