Well I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel! I got in for my MRI last week. They had to put me to sleep for the test because it is excruciating to lay on my back. My insurance really dragged their feet on approving it and then the hospital only does sedated MRI’s once a week. Ugh! Nothing like waiting over a month to get in for an MRI to see how bad the problem is.
Anyway, according to my surgeon, it is one of the biggest disc ruptures he has ever seen and is pushing my sciatic nerve completely out of place. Not exactly comforting, but at least I know that is the reason I have been in all this pain. My surgery is scheduled for early January. I have been given another round of steroids and fortunately I am relatively pain-free as long as I stay laying on my stomach. I am tired of being stuck in bed, but also very, very grateful to no longer have the unbearable pain.
I have been getting a lot of inquiries about from people who wanted help promoting their holiday giveaways. So I am opening one of my advertising packages back up. I can’t commit to doing daily linkies as I have a lot of doctor’s appointments between now and the surgery. However, I can submit to the giveaway directories for you and submit to my 11,500+ social media followers, which should give you a boost of traffic.
The order form will be up for about 3 weeks. I will take it back down a few days before my surgery. Then there will be a 6-8 week recovery period. I am sooooo looking forward to being able to be able to sit again, and drive, and eat dinner at the table with my family instead of standing up (and all those little things I took for granted before)!
So anyway, that is where I am right now. Thanks for your patience and understanding! If you want to order the Giveaway Directory Submission package, you can order here.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!
