Just My Life

Hello everyone, been absent the last few days been one thing or another, like yesterday after taking Leo to school I went to the doctors to get the results of my CT scan that was done on my lower back turns out I have multi-level spondylotic disease which is relatively more marked at the L4L5 which is causing moderate central canal stenosis.

What that means I have no idea I have Googled it and printed out some information about it which I am yet to read, however, what I do know is that these problems are from bulging discs and posterior element degeneration. This means my back pain will just over time get more and more and I am going to end up like my mother who has serious back pain that is getting more and more server over time.

Then when I got home I spent time reading blogs and did a couple loads of washing and hang it out to dry, then I had to go and get Leo from school and when I got home at 3.30pm I had to get the clothes off the line and then just didn't feel like doing anything so I didn't.

Also yesterday we had the ceiling fan in the bedroom replaced as it was tripping the circuit breaker for the lights, we have ceiling fans in each of the bedrooms as ell as in the lounge room. The fan cost $60 to buy and $80 to have installed which is pretty good.

This morning when I woke up at 6am to go to the loo my head felt so heavy on my shoulders and I couldn't keep my eyes open, so I went back to bed till Leo got here and came in to wake me up, this morning I was busy reading blogs and ironing. I have to iron sitting down now as I am unable to stand for more then maybe 5 minutes without pain.

Also when I got up this morning I found Natasha busy washing my kitchen cupboards she cleaned out all the top cupboards and washed them and was 99% done when she gets a phone call and had to rush in to have a shower and then leave for work. So I ended up finishing off the bench and washing the filter from the range hood over the stove.

Also Kathy-Lee and Summer came over for a while and while here she asked Tim and changing the oil in her car and she mentioned that the oil light had been coming on the last couple of days so we asked her when she lasted checked the oil and she didn't remember so Tim went out and checked it and the dipstick was clean no oil showed up on it, so Tim went and found some oil and put it in her car for her, I told her she was lucky she hadn't seize the motor.

Blain should be home sometime this afternoon, in fact I just said to Tim that I thought Natasha said he would be home around 11.30 this morning but it is now 1.40pm and he still isn't home, I will be leaving in 20 minutes to go get Leo. Yes I leave early to get him but I enjoy sitting in the car and reading while I wait for him, in fact if I leave later I often find it difficult to get a parking spot although it is easier to find somewhere to park at Leo's school compared to Blain's school.


That's all my news for now, I should be back tomorrow with some kind of other post, until then my friends stay happy and safe.

  1. It means that you backbone is rotting.
    Join the club - I have it on the left side laterals - now hanging by a thread due to polio at the age of 2 years, got over that and then intensive sporting activities.
    You have to be so careful. The older you get you, the chance of a corrective operation is more remote - my chances are 90% wheelchair.
    Nice thought to ponder, eh?
    Solution be careful with bending and lifting,
    get the boys to do the jobs.

  4. Sorry to hear about your back but just as the others have said, it is time to take it easy. You will have to let us know in a future post what the doctor says about what can be done for it. Surgery? Physical Therapy?

    That was nice of your daughter to help clean the cabinets. That is a chore I hate.

    Thank goodness Kathy-Lee has Tim around to help with her car. NO OIL..Yikes, that could of ended badly.
