Good news and not so good news (Health Update)

The good news! I know I haven't actually posted about my health much lately. Part of the reason is that I've been doing better! There hasn't been much to post about!

That was up until this week. The bad news. Monday I started having bone pain all over. All my bones just hurt. Tuesday I went to my primary care and got some pain meds and she ran lots of tests. The tests came out normal which is great!

The pain has continued to get worse this week and last night we went to the ER. We went to the new hospital by our house and it was not a good experience at all. I was sent home in the same amount of pain as I arrived in. The nurses and everyone were great. The doctor however was not. The ER doc sent me home with another oral pain medicine, but it didn't give much relief. It gave me enough relief to where I stopped begging to go to another hospital.

I've been up all night (probably from all the pain meds and pain), but my primary care doctor just prescribed some even stronger pain medicine. I just took it and hopefully that will give me relief. We really need this to work as we don't want to go to another hospital today. I'm actually not giving that as an option anymore since we have a (hopefully) better pain management plan now. So we are planning for this new med to work!

Thank you for all your prayers. Please continue to pray for relief and rest. After being up all night, I'm ready to have enough relief to sleep.
