Last week we had to head down to the City of London as Rob had a consultation with a back specialist which we have been waiting for the appointment since last year. It sure takes time to get into some of these specialist that is for sure. I had been quite impressed that we didn't have to wait too long past our 11 am appointment, which was a real bonus (especially when the parking meter is ticking outside; not cheap to park at these big hospitals).
We both liked the specialist, whose name I can't pronounce unless I hear it said first. The results are for Rob to go back in a couple of weeks, when we get a call with another appointment, to have needles put in his vertebrae. It was also discussed should the pain blockers not work then they would burn the nerves. It all sounds a little scary, or more so painful, but if it stops the awful daily pain he is in then so be it.
The rest of the week I barely remember what I did or didn't do, which is really a good reason why I should begin blogging again daily so I do remember ....
Saturday I went to a 20 mile Yard Sale with my friend, BJ. With all the starting and stopping along the way that took up the whole morning ! I was happy to get some relatively current DVD movies for Rob for $1 each, which made me pleased as punch. Rob had to go to Toronto this day, and wasn't back until well after dinner time, so a friend and I went downtown to the Wiarton Inn for some dinner.
Sunday turned out to be a fairly nice day, considering we had tons of rain come our way throughout the night before.
I seriously thought I would just mow the gardens in, but I used to really enjoy them so I thought I would try to make a go of them. I broke down last week and asked two friends if they would come out to help me weed it (they both said yes, and I am hoping they don't regret that once they see what a mess it is). The sad part was I hadn't even touched them last year .... and anyone who knows me would know my flowerbeds barely had a weed in them when I was on my "high" in life.
A few people on Facebook have been doing "spatchcock" chicken, so yesterday I thought Rob and I would also give it a go.
