We went to San Antonio this past weekend for our annual water conference. When I left town, I thought I had a slightly pulled muscle in my right thigh; most likely for PT. No big deal right?
Well as the weekend went on, my leg began to worsen. I took Tylenol, but it wasn't really working. I had to use my cane for the last part of the weekend and was very ready to come home. Once home, I took a muscle relaxer that I had from leaving the hospital. It didn't work at all! I soon discovered that it wasn't a muscle at all, but nerve pain.
The pain is so intense and causing me to not be able to straighten my knee properly that we called the on call neurologist on Sunday night. He told me that I could take two of my nerve pain medicine, but that it "may" work, but that it wouldn't hurt. My neurologist called me back yesterday morning. She called me in an additional nerve pain medicine to the pharmacy. She also moved my IVIG from Friday up to today. This is not good.
The good news is that she thinks that my nerve, although painful, is starting to repair itself. I just aggravated it in San Antonio even though I took time to rest. Please pray that God will take care of the nerve and the pain! I also need prayer that they will be able to find a vein for the IV this morning. My veins are starting to have scar tissue and they are rolling which is very challenging for the nurses, and it means that I have to be stuck more than once a lot of the time! :(
Thanks for all of your prayers!
