No Surgery!

The lesions on my spine are significant, one in particular is responsible for the loss of feeling in my feet and legs.  I'm still looking at some nasty MS drugs to stop the progression of this disease, but I do not have to have neck surgery at this time!  There are bone spurs in my neck that can be treated with an epidural of steroids.  I'll have to do this treatment once a year.  I'm also starting physical therapy, which will address the neck problems and the MS.  They are going to put me in a class that does exercises in the pool!  Nice!  Now if I can only find a cute "supersized" swimsuit!  Lol!

I have decided I need to try to find work I can do from home.  A little extra income would be so nice.  Any ideas out there?

Nina Simone is singing "Little Sugar In My Bowl"... it is so bluesy/jazzy/relaxing... My home is nice and cool.  Outside it is another blistering "hot sauna" afternoon.  I think I'll go watch a little HGTV!

Lol! I guess I'd better get shopping. Have to start the class this week!

Donna, I think sexy went out the window about 40 lbs. ago. I'm just trying to tell myself to ignore my discomfort and "own it" when I actually have to get in the pool in front of other people. I can do it! It's time to take charge of my health and get fit again! :)
