I'm afraid I'm going to have to give in and have the surgery to fix my slipped disk. I've been putting it off because 1) operating on my spine scares me and 2) it's in the back of my body, not the front. All of the other surgeries I've had - both knees replaced, hernia at my navel repaired, and ovary removed - have all been in the front and I could manage on my own. I talked with my son last night and he said if I could wait until school is out (he's a teacher) he would be able to come and stay with me for a few days. I hate him having to do that but I might not have a choice.
Glad to hear you were able to "get boosted"!!
I know it sounds scary but constant pain is more so. I am sure your son will be glad to help!
My mum thinks like you. She needs an operation on her eyes, and I will go stay with her for a few days afterwards. She hates asking me to do that, but I am happy to do it. It's my mum, she needs me, and I'll be there for her. I'm sure your son feels the same way.
Thanks for your kind words.
My son has always been the one there for me. I've had 4 surgeries (2014, 2014, 2015, 2017) since I moved back to KY and he was always the one who took me to the hospital, brought me home, stayed overnight if needed that first night, etc. But he was a stay-at-home dad with a small business he was running out of his home. By the time I had the first surgery in 2014 both of his boys were in school so he was free to help out. But he went back to teaching full-time about 4 years ago so he's not as available as he used to be. I know for certain he will be there to help me but I need to think about his schedule and try to work around it.
Tornadoes in Kentucky -
For those of you who know I live in KY, I'm good. Fortunately, the worst of it was west or south of where I live in Shelby County (county east of Louisville/Jefferson County).
All 4 local news stations in Louisville broadcasts the entire night. The one I watch WAVE-3 News had 3 meteorologists there and they were non-stop until the regular Saturday morning news at 5 AM. The last I heard about 6 AM was there were at least 4 confirmed tornadoes in KY. From what I heard and read, there was one HUGE one which was on the ground from Jonesboro, AR all the way to Bowling Green, KY - over 230 miles. That's just crazy ... especially in Dec.
My sister called me about 2 AM. I answered the phone with, "Yes, I'm up and I've got the TV on." LOL She then told me if one got near her (she lives about 28 miles northeast of me in the next county) she was going to the storage room under the house. I said, "So if it hits your house, that's where I'm supposed to look for your body?" and laughed. The problem with her "storage room" is you have to go outside to get to it. But it's mostly underground except for the one side where you enter. Me? I live in a patio home built on a slab. My "safe place" would be the hall bathroom.
So glad to hear you're OK. I've been reading stories about what happened, especially at that candle factory, so tragic.
I am so glad to read that you are ok! What a tragic occurence! It is devastating.
Thanks Di and Tammy. The pictures are horrific. Keeping everyone in my prayers.
