So, we went to the doctor yesterday...
Good News: His back (structurally) is in great shape! No compression, blah, blah, blah. The doctor was highly impressed and surprised!
Bad News: They couldn't find anything wrong - which is good news, but that also means there isn't a lot to be done.
He says that it must be a muscle thing that would most likely work itself out. Pretty vague.
The doctor prescribed a pain reliever/muscle relaxer. After we left the dr. office we went to the pharmacy. The meds had not been called in yet. Not a big deal - we ran another errand and came back 30 minutes later. Still nothing. The pharmacist calls the office (at 5:45 pm) and surprisingly, actually gets a nurse. She didn't know anything about it but she gave out the dr.'s number. The pharmacist, thankfully someone I know, called the doctor in an effort to help, but it didn't work. We have no meds.
Jeremy was feeling pretty good I guess, because he suggested we go to the mall. He got me a "shopping spree" at a particular... um... undergarment... store for Christmas. That was interesting to say the least. I had a couple of gift cards to burn, so we kept shopping around the mall and I got a pair of jeans (half off) and a cute summer shirt ($1.99). Then, to make our "date" night complete, Jeremy agreed to eat Chinese! Isn't he the best? (My husband really dislikes most Chinese food, but he is making a valiant effort to broaden his horizons in the culinary world!)
All in all, a pretty good night. It's weird that an afternoon at the doctor's office can turn into a date! But hey, I'll take what I can get!!!
Thank you all for praying and thinking of us. Now that we know there is nothing medically wrong, let's pray for a speedy recovery!!
