We restarted the prevacid with Sammy yesterday. I am not sure how long it will take to work, but I am praying that it will be fast. He seems to be less irritable today, and hasn't complained of pain when he isn't eating, I guess we will see when we eat supper.
I went to work today for a few hours. It still is such a hard pill to swallow that I have been unable to work for so long, and still here I am not doing "my job" or "real" nurses work. But I am truly thankful that I am able to do something and that the hospital is accomidating my limitations. I got word today that the specialist I saw a couple weeks ago (who I thought was a complete wasn't of time) has recommended that I restart physical therapy, and that it is very agressive to retrain/strengthen those muscles around my back where the torn discs/bulging discs are. So they are sending me to a PT place that I guess back injuries are their whole focus. Praying that this gets everything back in place for me. That I can get back to baseline and get back to a normal life.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us--yes, establish the work of our hands.
