Weekend Update

Meg and I had an unexpected trip to San Antonio last week. I have been going to the Texas Back Institute for my back pain in the past few weeks. I've always had back pain, but have started having leg pain as well. So, I decided it was time to do something. After my appointments with the Texas Back Institute, they recommended Facet Joint Injections. Seeing as the doctor had told me that my problems were in my discs, I couldn't understand why she would want me to have joint injections...so, I make an appt with my dad's back doctor in SA for a second opinion. Basically, he told me that he wanted me to say yes or no to surgery. He said I needed to tell him what I wanted to do. I decided to have an injection - it was worth a try. Especially since I'll have to have a four level spinal fusion. I had an Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI) on Thursday afternoon. It didn't help like I had hoped it would have, but it was worth a try. Jarrad and I are going to sit down when he gets back from hunting to discuss our next steps.

Meg and I had so much fun in SA. We got into town on Wednesday night and were able to meet mom and dad for dinner to surprise mom. She didn't know that Meg and I were going to get into town early enough for dinner. Meme was so excited. Taylor & Ruth were even able to meet us for dinner. It was a great night.
Thursday, I had my dr appt with Dr. Meadows and had the injection that afternoon. It worked out perfect that the pain mgmt doc was able to squeeze me into his schedule. That night, Taylor & Ruth came over for dinner and to visit. We had so much fun.


Friday, I worked a little. We had planned on going to Longhorn cafe for lunch, but didn't make it :( Next time I'm in SA, Longhorn is on top of my list! Megan thought she wanted to take a dip in the pool, but quickly realized that it was too cold.

We left for dinner on Friday night around 3:30 so we could run a few errands. I just had to go to Linens-N-Things for their going out of business sale. I found a great bed-in-a-bag set for the bedroom. During the winter, the coverlet I have on just doesn't cut it for keeping me warm. I can't wait for Jarrad to see my new purchase.

Friday night, Jamie & Lath met us at El Jarro (where else would we go) for dinner. I had a great time visiting with them. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful Best Friend. After 30 years, we're still like two peas in a pod.

Saturday morning, Meg and I met the Middletons at the soccer fields in Boerne so we could watch Maddie & Layton play soccer. We also went to Maddie's Fall Carnival at her school. Saturday night, Jamie, Lath & the kids came over to my parents house for a dip in the hot tub and to play. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.

Sunday, Meg and I got up, got packed and left to come home to Mansfield. We were sad to go, we always are, but we'll be back for Thanksgiving.

Sunday night I dropped Meg off at Nawnaw's because I had a special event - stay tuned for more details...

What a weekend! I feel so badly, but did you tag me for a meme a while back? Did I do it? I have horrible pregnancy brain... I can't remember. If you didn't, don't feel like you need to, I am struggling to get three done!
