Post two from last night

I am going to try this again. I never got to finish my post from last night. I had a good bit more wrote, but I got sick and had to quickly erase most of it and click post. As I said I was totally wired last night. Melanie, when I say that I mean I had lots of energy. Melanie is from Spain. Sometimes she don't understand some of the words we say. I think she does good though. I had laid in bed and could not sleep. I felt like I needed to do something besides lay in the bed. I decided to blog and read a few people's blogs. As you know from Kevin's post I was not suppose to do anything but lay down. "Thanks for posting for me Kevin"
No sooner than I sat down at the computer the room started spinning with me. I have passed out before and I knew I was fixing to be out. My neck broke out in a sweat and I felt horrible. I had to call for Kevin. Bless his heart, he had just went to sleep. I was able to finally get back to bed and I went to sleep. I kept waking up itching really bad. I must of been having a reaction to the medicine. I am so thankful Kevin stayed home because Brooke kept waking up and I could not lift her. I can't say I slept wonderful, but I did sleep. It is almost 6:30 now, and I can't sleep. I decided to post.
Yesterday went well. I was very nervous and scared. I feel good about the procedure. I trust that my back will be better and no pain. Of course my life will never be the same. I am a go getter. I like changes. I have always been the type to up and rearrange my living room, or the girls room. If I wanted the bed moved, I would move it. If I wanted the couch moved to a different wall I would move it. Kevin would come home many times and things be re-arranged, and he would get all over me for moving it by myself.
I was the same way as a little girl. I would get bored looking at the same walls. I would tell me mom that I was going to be cleaning and I would surprise her with changing my room around. I guess all the years of doing these things has not been good for my back. I know I will never be able to do that again, and it makes me sad. Now I will have to have help, and even then I really can't ever lift anything heavy. The only thing that can heal a herniated disk is surgery or God.
Surgery is out of the question. My doctor don't even want to go this route. The shot is to help with the pain and hopefully get some of the inflammation down. I will have to always be careful what I do. I guess I did not understand the seriousness of where my herniated disk is at. It is basically pressing into my spine at the very bottom of the spinal cord. Anyway I am just looking forward to being pain free for awhile. Kevin says much of my problem has been I think I am better and I do to much. Like Monday.....I knew I was going in for the procedure so I cleaned way more than I should have, and trust me I paid for it.
I am looking for brighter days. Thank you all for your concern, and your prayers.
