The apple trees are doing well and so am I. The pain from the exertion of planting them only lasted for a day. I'm 67 and I did a lot more work than I'm used to doing and I have arthritis so we're light behave like that I have to pay for it. One tree is a Kinder crisp and the other is a sweet 16. Both were developed by the University of Minnesota. The sweet 16 is one of the forerunners of the Honeycrisp apple. Some pain we have to medicate. Other pain, like the pain of overexertion in old age we just have to live with. A good rest in a couple of Tylenol and I was fine. Love and blessings.
Karen you need to contact Social Services. If your net worth is spent down below a certain level not including your home you will be eligible for services both financial and for medical help. I don't know the rules where you live but I know in Minnesota it's fairly liberal and you can get medical help and there is no better Insurance than ma insurance through Medicare but you don't have to be 65 years old to collect if you are truly destitute. Call social services and ask for an assessment. Love and blessings
I'm going to see a surgeon in a couple of weeks and see if there's a surgical solution to my back. The pain pump lets me function but I could do a lot better if they could fix the nerve is pinched on the west side. It's a risky surgery because they might cut through my catheter that leaks the Dilaudid into my spine.
Those shots never gave me more than five or six days of relief when I was getting them. If a TENS unit works for you then the spinal stimulator will probably work for you. That's how they test you to see if you're a good candidate for the stimulator. Right now they're probably just giving it to anybody who asks about it because they don't want to give them any kind of opioids for pain relief. I failed on the TENS unit test so they didn't give me a spine stimulator. Instead they gave me the pump which is inserted in my belly and has a catheter running up my spine leaking tiny amounts of Dilaudid directly to the nerve endings. And it works. Not this morning however. I spent two hours last night planting two apple trees my wife was given and it's the hardest I've worked in 4 years since I had cancer and every inch of my body hurts this morning. I should mention I am partially disabled and use a cane or a walker so 2 hours on my feet with a shovel in my hands was a bit extreme. But what baby wants, baby gets.ok
No I actually have a pump inserted in my belly with a catheter that runs up my spine leaking tiny amounts of Dilaudid directly onto the nerves. I get between 4 and 5 mg per 24 hours and that has the effect of taking orally 1200 to 1500 mg of Dilaudid which is enough To Kill A Band full of junkies if you actually put that much in your body. My pump still works very well three years, another two years I'll have to have it replaced. I did not respond well to the spine stimulator to the pain Folks at mhealth decided I should have the pump the only inconvenience is going down there every 3 months to have the old medication removed and the new medication put in. There is no better solution than the pump.I
