Sorry for the late post, y'all. I slept in. I asked David to wake me up early but he didn't. Sweet man!
Anywho, I went to see my pain doctor last week Friday but got his PA instead. My doctor had a full day of surgeries scheduled. The first thing she noticed was my hands were swollen from the arthritis so she set me up with the "magic pill." Yes! The "magic pill." I didn't know what to expect but I took one as soon as I got back from the pharmacy. Low and behold, within half and hour my pain was gone from my hands AND my back. The swelling went down considerably. I went crazy. Yes! Yes I did!
On Saturday morning, I took my regular morning pills, ate my breakfast of fresh pineapple and mango chunks with my toast. Then I flexed my hands and fucking cleaned house! I grabbed up the dirty clothes and linens and washed everything in the place that was dirty. I then grabbed up the dog blankets and washed them to get Pebbles scent off of them. Yeah, I noticed blood from her on the blankets from her last days. Way too much knowledge for y'all, sorry.
Anywho, while the wash was going on, in between loads I dusted, vacuumed the floors, rugs, and furniture, made the bed with fresh linens, mopped the floors watered my plants indoors and out, washed the front porch furniture, killed a few wasp nests, washed off the courtyard bricks and table and chairs. Then I sat down and surveyed my kingdom and was so fucking happy.
I really was. I only felt this way once before and that was the day I met David. That "magic pill" that one pharmaceutical miracle helped me do everything in one day that I would have to spread out over the whole fucking week. The pill is Etodolac otherwise known as Lodine.
"Etodolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Etodolac works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Etodolac is used to treat mild to moderate pain, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis."I take one of these pills in the morning and one at night and I can accomplish my day and sleep all night without anymore pain. I love my PA. She's a Goddess!
