Tests tomorrow... - Page 2

HI FRIENDS!!!

I am crying my eyes out right now because you guys just touched my heart BIG TIME!!!!! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR KIND WORDS, THOUGHTS & PRAYERS!!!!! thumbs_up.gif I wish I would have had a chance to read your posts before I went for the tests!! I wouldn't have felt a thing!!!!! Thank you so much!! You lifted my spirits!!!! God is truly Good!!

Ok now for the results...
I have nerve damage in both feet. My left foot is worse. The dr. said I do have some kind of neuropathy going on. So now I have to go to a neurologist to find out what kind it is & to have more tests done.

Oh my goodness did it hurt!! It was just like Joe said. They put needles all over your legs, feet, arms & hands (not all at once just one limb at a time) & then send electric currents through. Some places hurt but some didn't, & some liked to have killed me!! It felt like a bad labor contraction plus a burn like when you get a shot but 5 times worse!! I had to squeeze my hubbys hand when they got to my feet! It was like I was in labor all over again icon_cry.gif I don't want to do that again but this dr. said that the neurologist would probably do my feet again just so she can see for herself... icon_cry.gif The only appointment they had open was a month from now. I hate having to wait that long, but oh, well. I'll go with the flow!

Linnburg/Sandi, The dr. put me on neurotin! I start taking it tonight at bedtime. I hope it will help me! I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. Can she walk now? What kind of virus did she get that would cause such a bad thing like that to happen? Now I will pray for her & you & your family!! I will probably have questions for you after I see the neurologist. Right now I have no idea about nerve damage. I'm afraid of looking it up on the internet... you read too much bad stuff!! Thank you for your help!

My hubby doesn't want me to do cakes anymore!!!! So I feel your pain suzyqqq!!! He said I don't need to be standing up in the kitchen all day doing cakes!! I'm a very VERY hard headed & stubborn woman so I said there is no way I'm going to stop!!! If I have a disease that will cause me to be in a wheel chair one day I am going to do everything I enjoy now & a lot of it!!!!!!!! He didn't tell me goodnight when he went to bed so I made him mad. OH WELL!!!! I can't just sit around & do nothing!! Sorry, I was venting!! icon_mad.gif

Thank you all for your kind words!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's great to have friends like ya'll!!!!!!!! thumbs_up.gif
Lisa, Thanks for the angel!! I collect angels!!!

Who says you have to stand? Buy a barstool and sit on that when decorating, or do all your decorating at the kitchen table so that you can sit down.
That way the only part you have to stand at is when you are making cakes, and even then I bet you could sit down for that.
Where there's a will, there's a way! thumbs_up.gif
Glad to hear that you are able to get some anwers from your tests. I think not knowing why your ill is worse than knowing. (I'm one of those people that prefers to see when the doctor sticks me with a needle because it hurts less that way for me.)

tc, all of are prayers are with you and your family, so the outcome has to be positive. Do all the research you can! It's better to know what your options are. Once you get your treatment, you'll be back at decorating in no time, pain free! Prayers all the way!

Hey Tina,
I am going to have to give you my mom's email address so that you to can get together and compair notes on the nurotin(spelling). She had a dr. put her on it for the same thing and then another one take her off of it. Who knows maybe if the 2 of you get together you can both be better!!! I love you Sis and am keeping you in my prayers....now please do the same for me. You know how it is when the husband is away everything that can go wrong probably will. Well the other day remember me telling you about my back hurting? I finally went to the Dr and now I have been diagnosed with severe lower right lumbar back spasims...Dr. Wants me to take like 4000mg of Robaxin a day but just cant with it only being me with the kids so you know what that means...I get to suffer through the pain. ok I'll quit complaining and go lay on the floor with my feet up like recommended. I love you and hope you are feeling better!

tc ~ I'm sorry you had to endure so much pain during the testing process, but very glad your hubby was holding your hand during this, and of course very glad for the Angel on your shoulder watching over you! Hubby may have been mad, but only because he cares so much for you and he'll get over it. You should invest in a good dratfting table that adjusts to your needs!

Thanks, LISA, MCHELLE, MOUSE, & JSCAKES for the advice about the tables & stools & sitting! Also for words of encouragement!!! I never thought I could have such great friends online!! icon_smile.gif

LISA... you are a very positive person also!! I see it in every post you make!!!

I have been coloring the icing & doing my decorating at the table. If I have to I'll bring all the supplies to the table along with my kitchen aid & do it all sitting down!! I'll try anything!

I baked 2 cakes yesterday for my Easter cake. I'm doing the Easter Cake on Pg.66 in the Wilton 05 year book. I thought it was sooooooo sweet!!!!!! I froze the cakes so I will decorate them Sat. I can't wait!! I have all the icing ready. All I have to do is decorate!

Today I did a race track cake for a boy who turns 8. I took pics but I still can't get my camera to download to the computer so I have to wait till I develope them to post them! One day I'll figure out this camera!

TCREMA.... I'll try & catch you online tomorrow ok!!! I'm sorry I forgot to email you with the results before I posted the results on here...... DON'T KILL ME!!!!! I LOVE YOU TOO!!! Later~

TC~
All things will turn out in the end. Even if you still have some pain in your like, we women are a tough breed, and you have all of our support here. JSCakes is right, your husband loves you and doesn't want to see you in pain, so he thinks that if cake decorating is causing pain then he logically thinks you shouldn't be doing it. I'm sure that once he gets over the initial scare and you show him all the wonderfull solutions that we helped you come up with- he'll come around. I'm sure he loves you enough not take away something from you that makes you happy. We'll keep you in our mind, hearts, and prayers.
