It's a "wow" kind of day. The first "wow" is I have had 2 phone calls into DH's pain management doctor for the last 2 days now. He has been in very bad pain since Wednesday. He got about 3 hours sleep Wednesday night and 5 hours last night. I called and left a message with the issue yesterday morning. The nurse finally called me back at 3:15pm - telling me the doctor had already left for the day, so she'd talk to him in the morning and get back to me. By 11:30 this morning, we still had not heard back on what he thinks Dh should do....so I called again and had to leave a message. Still no call back. Unbelievable! You have a patient who is in such bad pain they can't stand it and ignore it? His family physician isn't in until Monday, so no option there, either. I guess if it keeps up I'll just take him to ER - maybe there he'll finally get some scans of his body done. It's been over 8 years since the last tests/scans and they keep telling us now that doing any more now isn't necessary. He wasn't in pain 8-10 years ago - obviously something has changed. Maybe what he's having right now is just something more specific - like a disc or pinched nerve. Who knows? I also did some more research into Lyrica side effects and for some it looks like it can cause muscle and joint pain (they ver thing we are trying to get rid of)
The 2nd "wow" is my new blinds for the living room came today. I just set them aside, until DH feels well enough to help me put them up. I just walked out into the living room and my kids are putting them up for me! Yay!
