Rough week....all around here

This past week has been a rough one.

Sunday - Aaron was working on the brush cutter, and came in saying his back hurt. So he took it easy all day.

Monday - Aaron's back was worse, hurt but could still walk, etc.... Savannah is starting to panic about middle school, cries from 8:30-11:30pm, begs me to stay in her bed with her, finally falls asleep around 2am, has to be up at 6am for school.

Tuesday - Kids head back to school, by this time Aaron can't sit or hardly walk. Using crutches & moving really slow. Goes to see the dr on call, he says take Vicodin and Ibuprofen, rest and it should be better in a few days. Savannah has a good day at school, but come bed time it starts again, only this time it lasts until after 3am. Plus getting up every 4 hours to give Aaron his meds......Mommy is just not used to being up in the middle of the night anymore.

Wednesday - Aaron can no longer walk at all, crawling everywhere. Pain is worse. Calls dr. and can't get in until Friday AM. Savannah has a good day at school, plus 4 hours of gymnastics. Starts to get teary at shower time but I loose all patience and tell her to get showered and calm down. Give her some Benedryl and she sleeps from 9pm - 6am. THANK HEAVENS! Only have to be up every 4 hours for Aaron's meds.

Thursday - Aaron is in pain, waiting for dr appt tomorrow am, hoping it will stop hurting soon. School is good for both kids, and no problems! WOO HOO!!

Friday - Aaron gets up, tries to get into the car to drive to the dr. but he can not sit long enough to even get all the way into the car, I call a friend to watch my daycare and take him directly to the Emergency Room (our dr is 35 minutes away, and Aaron is laying in the back of the Tahoe unbuckled, I am not getting on the highway like that) Dr says its a sciatic nerve pinched, now taking Perdinsone, and Percocet.

Saturday - Hoping that Aaron will feel better, but no luck yet.

Sunday - Aaron still is not able to walk, called dr to leave a message that I want an MRI, ASAP. Hopefully they will call back early, or at 7:30am, I will be back on the phone with them.

Please hope and pray that this ends soon. Aaron is miserable, and I am beginning to wonder how much longer we can go on this way. He is depressed about missing work, not being able to help around the house, or with the kids sports. And I am burning the candle at all ends possible.

Thanks for letting me off to give him last meds before he goes to bed.

Thanks again!

Thanks.... there is not a lot anyone can do right now. He has an MRI tomorrow (Tue) AT 5:45PM, then it gets sent to the nerologist ASAP, and they will read it and let us know. Hoping for NO surgery, but really just want him to feel better.

Thanks again!
