Today I go in for a discogram, the pain inducing procedure I’ve been griping about. I’m super nervous and not at all looking forward to how much it will hurt. I am however happy that the process is moving forward since this is a necessary step before having surgery. Surgery was always going to happen but due to part safety concerns and mostly insurance requirements, it’s been a long road to get to even this point.
I didn’t get a lot of writing done this week but I did get the index card outline mostly finished, which was my main goal. Writing today is off the table and I have no clue how I’ll feel tomorrow. The doctor says I should be pretty leveled out this evening with pain so maybe I can be productive again soon.
The truth is, the thing dominating my thoughts this morning, besides the procedure, is food. I didn’t eat much last night at dinner because I didn’t feel good and I didn’t have a snack or anything before bed, so I’m starving! I can’t eat until after the discogram is done and I have a CT scan. It will be lunch time before I eat.
If I’m up to it I’ll write an update on how it all went. Have a great day everyone!
