Had the ablation this morning. I could tell that this doc didn't put as much lidocaine in, but I'm still glad I didn't go through the hassle of having sedation. The pain isn't so much during the procedure (it's quick), but the pain in the joint is bad tonight. The doctor who did it and gave me a year and a half relief sent her information as to where to place the needles and they were on the phone together. So, I felt good about that. It could stay bad for three days and I won't know for 2-3 weeks whether it worked or not. I'm resting as they advised but I did throw the ball to Bogey to get him exercise--that was tough because of my acrobatics last week. I'm still taking, and will continue to take, the muscle relaxers to try to keep that to a low roar.
I am so looking forward to going back to Reed Bingham in April, and I'm meeting my sister over near Charleston. She's flying down on the 17th and we're taking the trailer over on the 18th through the 25th and she'll stay some extra days to see the boys. We are all excited. I think she'll love Charleston. Susan will drive her car over since the back seat of the truck is not comfortable and she may want to go into Charleston and walk around to shop--she doesn't want to drive the truck over there.
All Bogey wanted to do, today, was to go camping. He whined, he cried, he pulled all his tricks out. Even when I was throwing the ball (he never gets tired of that), he carried the ball to the back door and wanted to bring it in. He took it in and went right to the side door and whined to go out. What a character.
Susan saved me. She took him for a long walk up to the nature center when she got off from work, and when they got back he went to sleep. So that's my report for the night. I probably won't have anything to say until Charleston. I never get tired of the place--see something new every time we go.
