Good morning everyone! Such a beautiful breezy day today. I already feel spring in the air. Well, yesterday was a doctor visit day and my results from my spine MRI state that my spine is riddled with arthritis. The top vertebra of my tailbone that meets with the first vertebra of my lower back is severe enough to cause my tailbone to burn. As far as my neck is concerned, I have a few bulging disc’s with disc degenerative disease and the vertebrae that are close to my skull have severe arthritis. I am going in for a procedure next month to have steroid injections in my neck and after that, they are going to burn the nerves in my neck for pain management.

After seeing my back doctor yesterday, we took me to the hospital to get checked out for this cold I have. I have a virus that is also causing acute sinusitis. I have also lost ten pounds in a week due to not being able to keep anything down. I was given an antibiotic, something to keep nausea at bay, and something for a sinus headache. I have not been sick in a couple of years but when I do it puts me down for a few weeks, but I now have medicine to fix it.

On a brighter note, I am feeling a bit better today except for the pounding sinus headache but I am ready to get back to writing. I took my book manuscript with me to the hospital yesterday for something to while waiting and did some revisions and editing. I have moved my deadline for publishing to July due to financial issues and will have at least three books to publish at that time. I have also been writing short stories that are not published online for a book compilation I am working on also. Things are looking really good for the future.

Well, off to writing and I hope everyone has a great day and keep smiling. 🙂
