Yesterday Jan went to the doctor. Doctor looked at the photos from hospital of his back, and had a good look over his back and came to the following conclusion:
Jan has a bit of worn out spinal, (which didn;t surprise me to hear), and the pain he is having at the moment is caused by very much irritated muscles at the side of it.
He gave him another painkiller, much stronger than the last pills, and Jan has to come back on Friday.
Well, I rushed to the drugstore to get his pills, he took right away one and another one around dinner time and I think another one just before going to sleep.
Oh, miracle, already yesterday evening he was feeling a lot better. Still it hurts of course, but already less than the day before. The muscles get a chance to "rest" a bit, and hopefully he ges a better sleep now which will be a good thing too. Let us just hope these pills will do the trick and that by Friday he can tell the doctor it is going the good way. I hope so, because when these pills don;t do the trick, he might need some fysiotherapie, but it is not a real option, cause we will have to pay for the sessions.
It is not in the health care assurance, and a session will not cost peanuts.
Jan even felt so much better yesterday already, that he even talked about getting on his bike again next week. I urged him, not to be too optimistic and take by the day and then we'll see next week.
I so hope it will go and stay better with him now, he has had trouble enough the last few months, don;t you think?
So we all cross fingers and think "painless back", okay? LOL.
After I was back from the drugstore, I went out for some grocerie shopping and oh my, the weather was really so nice! Sunny, temps around 55 F or even a bit higher, almost no wind, it really felt like Spring. I hope today we will have about the same weather, then perhaps I can do something in the garden. Even a little bit will be good already, a start has to be made.
Yesterday afternoon I spent a little bit of time at the computer and the result you can see in my bloglayout. New month, new layout, I thought. I could do that, because I really did do some things of my to-do list I made Monday. Every day a bit will do the trick, hopefully.
Our cat Brodski is surely feeling the change in weather. The last two days he spent a lot of time outside, and then of course had to take a loooong nap again to recover grin!
As we hopefully are heading tospringtime, I post a springy kit today, named........Towards Spring".
All in fresh greens and some bright yellow and orange accents to it.
Sweet clusters from Arlene to complete it.
Have a wonderful day.
