The injection went extremely well!! When we talked to the doctor, he suggested a less freaky procedure. He suggested an anchle block. Basically, they inject some local anesthetic and steroid into my anchle in a half circle pattern. He said he'd prefer to do that rather than make me go under sedation. So we did it. It wasn't bad at all. He and the nurse and I discussed school for the 5 minutes it took. Then I went into recovery for about a half hour. There I ate graham crackers and apple juice and had my blood pressure taken every ten minutes. It really wasn't so bad. And the best thing? It feels so much better. It's sore around the injection site, but that's okay. Right now it's a bit numb, but that's okay. It'll get better hopefully. It feels so good not to hurt all the time! Something about chronic pain made me feel so bad! ALSO GOOD NEWS: We have a new dog, his name is Baxter. He's a black lab mixed with border Colly. He's 3 months old and sweet! Maybe things are looking up! I'm praying for a complete healing, and thanking God that I remained calm today!!
Well I'm going to go play with Baxter and do some other stuff!
