Please forgive the long time in posting. I decided to upgrade Wordpress to the new release and all did not go well. Rather than back it out I did a lot of hacking in the database with SQL until I finally got it all working properly. I'm not sure why the upgrade did not work as it should have, but I've spent enough time messing with it and it works now, so on to other things.
I had the discogram & CT scan on Friday. The discogram was not nearly as bad as I was led to believe. I do remember being awakened during the proceedure but only vaguely, and there was no pain that I can recall. The Dr. had said I might be very sore for up to 3 days, but it is not any worse than my normal continual back pain. I won't know anything about the result until next Wed when I see the Dr.
And on the final front, we both have nasty colds that seem to be hanging on and on. The worst part is the coughing that has kept me awake nights, and the fact that coughing feels like a knife in my back. Sure hope we get past this soon.
