I'm having a lumbar epidural tomorrow to reduce inflammation and discomfort. I had spoken to my doctor and we just weren't pleased with the slowdown in my improvement--I haven't gotten worse just not better enough. I'm a little nervous, if only because I hated the "pop" of my spinal for my c-section. But my understanding is that this will be better or different.
So, send your loving thoughts this way (or to NYC, where I'll be) tomorrow . . . .
And thanks to Aunt Banana for her words of support and calm and suggestions for the procedure.
