Getting older isn’t for sissies.  Anyone out there know what I mean?  Have you ever got one of those “mystery” injuries that you have NO CLUE how you got it but it’s some of the worst pain you’ve ever had?  I was blessed with one of those crazy, out of the blue, injuries.  it started on Friday, a simple little “Hmmm, I think I slept wrong and my neck hurts.”  No big deal, right?  It’s hard to move it but not horrible but I just kept blowing it off thinking it was just a simple neck pain.

Fast forward to Sunday and I can’t move my neck more than half an inch to the right or left and the pain was worst than anything I had ever experienced.  Then these other weird things started happening.  My left arm would go numb, cold sweats and chills.  This is not good.  I have a great doctor and he got me in first thing Monday morning.  He did x-rays and everything was fine but my white blood count was elevated.  He was “this close” to sending me to the ER for a spinal tap to test for meningitis.  Say WHAT????  Um, I was not happy to hear the word “spinal tap”.  I don’t know everything there is to know about it but I have watched enough “St. Elsewhere”, “ER”, and “Chicago Med” to know that I DON’T WANT ONE!  Because I didn’t have any of the other symptoms he said he would wait but if I got even the slightest fever I was to go straight to the ER.  GOOD NEWS!  That never happened!  He put me on a steroid and muscle relaxer and this morning, I am seeing a huge change.  I have a little more mobility in my neck and generally “feel” more like myself.  I will stay on these meds for the week and should be good as new soon.  I better be!  I have some fun stamping stuff to share with you this week!

Don’t forget!  Tomorrow night I will be LIVE on Facebook!!!  I will be creating some beautiful cards with the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack.  If you are a fan of “One Sheet Wonder” projects, you will want to tune in!  Not on Facebook?  Not to worry!  I will be sharing it here on my website on Friday but live is always more fun.
