More Journal Pages & Procedures

Just wanted to show you some journal pages from Journal # 2. It is almost complete and then I am going to start another, but this time in a Comp Book that I have already glued the pages together to make them tougher, for lack of a better word.

This page was dedicated to the Pink, Love and Kindness weekend recently.

This one was just a silly page. Sometimes I must do silly pages to help me dissolve the drama I have to deal with on the day job everyday!

This was another fun silly page, but when my friend Lotus brought me over these cool images that she can cut out so perfect, I had to use them. So these were my picks.

This one started with a piece of music paper. I tore it for back ground pieces and when I glued it down, I saw the line that said "Dare to Stand Alone". And since this was the time I was still trying to clean and organize my studio, I had found the little cardboard letter's, and they were perfect for this.

I have been having issue's with my neck, not being able to turn my head very much due to my degenative disc disease. A couple of weeks ago, I had to have 10, yes 10 trigger point injections with cortisone in my neck. They were suppose to last 2 months. Well that procedure lasted exactly 2 weeks. So yesterday I went to the hospital and had a cervical steriod epidural! I survived but not by much. The so called nurse, almost killed me with trying to put in an I V in the back of my hand. OMG! It hurt so much and she tried three times until I said, "OK, can you try somewhere else?" She said yes, she blew it. I am thinking, YES you did! Anyway, then she put in the side of my wrist and I didn't even feel it!

The actual epidural was a piece of cake! They knocked me stupid with stuff in my I V and I didn't really even know it was going on, even though I was sitting up on the edge of the bed.

Drum roll...........Today less than 24 hours I can turn my head almost shoulder to shoulder without any pain!! YEA!!! I am having more trouble with the bandage!! If I could dance I would! I don't want to take any chances. And I slept 8 hours! Hope this lasts at least 6 months like he said it should! Woo Hoo!! I am healed!! Well until the next one:)

Hope you are all well and journaling everyday.

I heard about the shot from Ed! I'm glad it went well, but I'm a bit upset that my friend's HUSBAND had to tell me she was getting shots for her neck...?!?

Your journal is awesome! You've got to show what happened to the spine and how you fixed it!

Talk to you later...

I told you that Richie has had the best things to say about his epidural! It's like magic, huh? I'm so glad it has helped you so much already.

And your journal pages are all fantastic...I especially love the last one. You rock, woman! I've missed you.

Peace & Love,
