injection #4

Jun 6, 2012

I made it through the fourth round of ozone injections. Kat held my hand and I squeezed her upper arm (I hope not too fiercely…are you bruised Kat?). I had a response similar to the first injection (which if you will remember was 20+ minutes of H-E-double toothpicks), but not quite as intense and certainly not as long in duration. Thank goodness for that. I honestly don’t know if I could handle another round like the first one. I was incredibly sore on Monday afternoon, but by evening was moving significantly better. By Tuesday, I was able to get in and out of the van without hollering and today I was able to get out of bed without help.

These injections are not for the faint of heart, but they do seem to be working, so I am going to keep working up my courage and keep bringing strong hands to hold and see how far this takes me down the healing path.

    I’m so happy and relieved that something is working at least temporarily. Are you still going to meet with the surgeon?
