    Good Morning GTT!

    What a beautiful day again yesterday! High temp was 69* with a stiff NW breeze. Got my mowing and trimming done. So happy with my new Milwaukee cordless trimmer and of course the now “old” 2520.

    Mrs. C’s PT went well yesterday I think. What is one if the biggest issues is she still has the staples in her incision. Should have been taken out weeks ago but could not get an appointment.

    The PT girl had her remove the bandage. She said part of their care is wound care. She said it looks slightly infected in one spot. She massaged all around the incision. Mrs. C said overnight all of a sudden she felt it leaking and felt immediate relief. Must have been the massaging.

    I never knew these PT people did so much. She told Mrs. C that she is her primary care giver now for her surgery. They must go through some comprehensive training.

    Today is the visit to the knee doc. I know what is going to happen - Mrs. C will go in there and they will remove the bandage and ask why the heck hasn’t she been in to have the staples removed. Ummm, I plead with the lady on the phone and told her what I needed. She told me that this was absolutely the first appointment she could get. It’s been 4 weeks since the surgery as of last Monday.

    So I see some antibiotics coming along with some more wound care. I’m so glad she is feeling some relief this morning. The last few days she was in awful pain - also walking with the cane with her leg stiff instead of bending it at the knee.

    So will do the grocery run while in town. Planning in getting a slice of pizza from my favorite pizza place for lunch since it is close to the hospital.

    thanks OC. at least u believe me
    .................................................. .
    good morning-woke up early--this going to bed-with glasses on to watch tv is getting old--first thing i think of is them darn things when i wake up now-and realize their not where they was when i fell asleep.

    ahh-back to dreaming the last several nights-maybe a week nowwhat scares me is the people in the dream are talking to me now that would be ok-but these people are ones who have passed away. boy it seems so real like.

    worked on the plastic pipe on the pto shaft yesterday--spent an hr just looking for the paperwork that came with the pto shafts back when the RFM and brush hog was bought new back in 07. no where to be found---watched some video's on u-tube-could not find one video that showed my plastic coverings.
    gonna do some ordering of new ones today.

    got the 50 out -but first the battery was dead-so pulled it when bren got home from work--5 ft and it fired right off-in the old days would pull it myself--with a long chain--jump off the 2520 and run back to 50 and yank the hand clutch back. yeah-it was dangerous back then--finally put a heavy duty larger battery in--8 yrs ago-this is the first time the battery was down-course i have always started it thru the winter months-this last winter i didn't start it any.

    found out after a couple passes in my cousin's meadow-the plastic covering is also shot on the pto too. forgot about it finally giving up last fall. so now i'm up to replacing 3 of them.

    later
    Anybody see where he said anything about a rain gauge or where he posted a pic? Yeah, neither did I. He's putting it so far behind himself hoping everybody will forget. Did I say enough about it this time?

    ***************

    Good morning! Had my coffee. What's left is for all the late comers. Hope there is enough left. If not tell Gizmo to make more. That way you can have fresh and he just might, I say just might, add some spirits to it. It will be of his choosing of 'course.

    It was 61° here earlier with the wind doing a fine job of blowing. It was dry all day yesterday and so far today. Hoping it won't rain today as this is the day I will start mowing and if it does hold off I should get it done today too.

    Good morning all,

    Weather is beautiful this morning, but 100% chance of rain overnight and Thursday. That's fine with me, as the newly seeded lawn can use it. The area that I seeded just 9 days ago is already starting to peek thru the straw.

    Today's schedule is a brake job on my son's car. That will be it for the day.

    Have a good one.

    Got my X-Ray Report

    Got the report and things show up with degeneration and other mild stuff. Course mild to a doctor is not the same mild to us I have found out. When they say bad your about dead mild, is haft way there. Now to see if injections can help with any of the constant pain in my hips?

    Hips: Minimal bilateral hip degenerative joint disease with osteophytes. Mild bilateral hip joint space narrowing. Minimal pubic symphysis sclerosis.

    Small chronic appearing calcification seen lateral to the right acetabular roof.

    Left lower pole 1.3 cm renal calculus again noted.(kidney stone) not sure why they don't see the other one in the right too?

    Well placed steroid injections which are done under live fluoroscope can be very helpful in reducing pain and discomfort. I will tell you the process is a bit uncomfortable as when they inject the catheter, it feels like they are trying to ram a Bic pen into your back by hand, but its only uncomfortable for a short time. Plus, the relief from the injection usually far outweighs the momentary discomfort of the med placement.

    Live fluoroscopic means they are injecting the meds while you are on an "Imaging Table" where the doctor inserts the catheter into your lumbar joints where needed and then they take an image to see just where the needle or catheter is located and they can see the exact placement inside your back or hip and they then they position it again and take another image, until its located exactly where its likely to be the most helpful.

    This is the best way to do these injections as they can make sure to place the meds where they have the chance of being the most helpful. I have had dozens of these over the years in my lumbar spine, shoulder, neck, the base of my skull (those are painful) and sacroiliac and hip joints. It's better than just jabbing you with the needle and hoping its close.

    Generally, My experience is when the imaging report says "Mild", they mean consistent with normal wear and age of the patient. When the issue gets to the point where it is severe, you are in such constant agony you are sweating while sitting there from the intense pain. It's not something you want to wish upon others ............well, maybe there are a couple of people........just kidding.......

    If they are planning on injections, ask them if they are done under live imaging. They might require you to bring a driver with you to the appointment as most people they sedate to help reduce the "discomfort" of the process. I always waived any sedation or anesthetic and just bit the leather strap like the Cowboys do in the old Westerns when having my injections. The pain has to get pretty severe for one to pass out from it......

    Another very helpful diagnostic test they can do is perform caudal injections on the area where the pain is originating and they inject a fast acting anesthetic which can immediately stop the pain. This helps assure them they have gotten the injection in the right area as the anesthetic will numb the area where it is blocked. As the anesthetic wears off, the pain will return, but a least during the time the drug is working, you know they have found the source of the pain.

    Then they will often re-inject that area with the steroids since they have targeted the source of irritation causing the pain. Just keep in mind that the steroids typically take a day or three to fully start to work, depending upon the area where injected and numerous other issues, so don't expect a miracle right away or feel it was a waste of time, because depending upon the drug used, some time may be needed.

    Live fluoroscopic is how they were talking about so it is placed in the right spot. Haven't got my doctors report just the X-Ray Readers report. Thanks for the information it helps!
