My Special Girl is in so my Pain


Good morning, I am up nice and early today after a night of broken sleep. The reason well my special girl........aka.........Jessica rang me and I didn't answer so she rang her dad and he didn't answer so than she rang her sister Natasha and she answered the phone at 2.30am.

Yeah I know you are wondering what was wrong as people do not ring around trying to get someone to answer a phone at 2.30am for no reason.

So I will tell you she was in pain, two or three times a year she gets this back pain and the pain is so severe that all she does is cry, she is unable to move and it is terrible just listening to her cry. Anyway the pain was that bad that she just wanted her mummy, so I got my long pj's on and went to her place.

I took with me Ibuprofen and Voltaren Emulgel I gave her two Ibuprofen and rubbed the Voltaren into her back and then decided to get Leo up and bring them both back here.

She has had very little sleep and I was woken to her crying again at 5am I got up rubbed some heat rub into her back this time and gave her more Ibuprofen at 6.30am I said to her to give me a number for someone at work so I could ring them and let them know she is unable to go today and I also gave her a moonshine tablet I had here for my back pain, my mum gave it to me and I gave it to Jessica.

I have also made a doctor's appointment for her after I take Leo to school. Speaking of Leo he is so concerned about his mum and has asked me a number of times why can't I give his mum pain medication to make her pain go away. He is very concerned about his mum and gets upset when he hears her crying in pain.

So after a couple of attempts I managed to get onto someone and let them know she was unable to drive this morning, have to say the guy I spoke to was a cranky sounding man and hard to understand also but I managed to get him to understand that she is unable to do her school run this morning. I hope this doesn't go against her as it is not something she can help and I am talking her to the doctors at 9.45am this morning, thankfully I can book appointments online so was able to find her an appointment at 6.30am.

    1. The Dr had no idea what caused the pain and sent her for blood tests and an xray we should get the results tomorrow and she was given medication to take if it happens again, Tramadol and Diclofenac EC but these attacks usually only last a few hours this is the longest she has been in pain with it

  7. That is really unfortunate, but you should relax. With all the therapies in the world, Jessica should be up and over it in no time. Good thing that you had booked a doctor's appointment right away. So, how did her check-up go? I hope she is doing well now. Take care always!
