Life's Little Moments

...The proper grip

A bit of an e-blip today ... and one I've done before, sorry to say. However, I find it hard to resist the titmice and their boundless optimism. It is funny to me that this little guy was able to fly off with this big peanut so delicately held in the tip of his beak.

Saw the doc yesterday and he has ordered an MRI of my neck/back. He believes it is a ruptured or herniated disk in my spine that is causing all the pain in my neck, shoulder and arm. Major bummer. As soon as the insurance company approves the scan, I'll be off to the Tunnel of Terror - I am horribly claustrophobic and have take a sedative to get through the process. Totally illogical, but very real to me. In the meantime, I am on a daunting array of drugs - steroids, muscle relaxers and pain meds. Definitely feeling fuzzy. But they seem to be helping with the pain and I was able get a good night of sleep.

It is very painful to sit so I am keeping computer time to a minimum for the next few days. My commenting will be sporadic at best...

But, hey, it's Tuesday and one day closer to the weekend...
