A horse named Charley!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The new muscle relaxer let me down last night.  I was awakened with the most horrible muscle spasms in both legs.  It hurt so bad I had to get out of bed and Ron had to rub my legs and feet until it stopped.  Poor Ron.....he's not getting any sleep either.

One of the causes associated with nightly muscle spasms and leg cramps is spinal stenosis and I know I have that in my lower back.  I sure hope it isn't the cause because I'm not sure what they can do about it other than surgery to relieve the pressure on the offending nerves.

Tonight I'm going to hydrate like crazy and hope for the best. By the time my surgery date gets here I'll be driving faster than a speeding bullet to get to the hospital.  I'm SOOOOO ready to get this over with and start rehab.

I decided we had a gremlin in the house because I kept losing things.  First I couldn't find my very favorite pair of black slacks....then my black hoodie went missing....then my favorite measuring scoop.  I was really beginning to wonder what the heck was going on when this morning what did I find hiding in the back of my closet?   My black slacks, then my daughter called and told me I left my black jacket at her house 2 weeks ago......now I just have to find that scoop and all will be right in my world again!

It is funny how I can lose something that I had in my hand seconds ago. I am sorry that you are dealing with all that pain. Knowing that there is a fix and that you have to wait must be frustrating.
