Quick Update

Here is a quick update, since I am not feeling well and want to back back to bed.
I am still having alot of problems with my pain and I'm starting to have problems with the medication. Thankfully, I am seeing a new pain Doc on Thurs. (my previous one quit the practice).
Secondly, I am having 2 other scary medical problems, both will require me to see a specialist. The first is that I am loosing feeling in my fingers. This started about a month ago and has just been getting worse. I can be doing any number of everyday things and all of sudden I will realize that I can no longer feel my fingers. Sometimes it lasts for 10-20 min. , sometimes up to a hour. The second is that I am having problems with my feet swelling. I've had this problem off and on all year, but after not having the problem for 4 months when it did occur again, it took me by surprise. I don't know what causes it, but the #1 concern is that something is wrong with my heart. And since I have a history of heart problems, it is something I need to get checked out. Because of the swelling I can only wear flip-flops, as my feet are too swollen to fit into tennis shoes.

But, I do have some good news. My depression is getting better. I no longer have insoumnia, and I am able to go to sleep on my own, and without the help of a sleep aid. I am sleeping soundly at night and don't wake up in the middle of life like I used to.

Please continue to keep me in your prayers, and I will update better when I can.

Praying that the doctors get to the bottom of the two new issuses and also praising God for the good news. Glad you are doing better re: the depression and that you are able to get a good night sleep. I sometimes have insomnia so I know that is no fun at all!
