Poked, Pricked and Prodded
The lidocaine shots that I had on Monday didn't work. Four needle pokes all for nothing. :( Good news is that my insurance approval came in yesterday and I'm now scheduled for the spinal epidural on the 30th of this month. It's so soon and I find myself relieved and petrified at the same time. I can't imagine what it will be like to be pain free, or at least have most of it alleviated. It's been so long...since 1996 I think? Getting there is what frightens me. Well, at least I've had an epidural before (twice!) so I know what to expect, and I'll be lying faced down so I won't have to see the needle coming at me! Think happy thoughts! Think happy thoughts!
