I'm grateful for beautiful winter days with crisp mornings that warm up to be glorious days here on the coast. I'm even grateful when it cools off in the evening and we get the most amazing sunsets ever here in Winter. Sunrises and sunsets are two of my all time favourite things. Even Blake appreciated them this week. We had a glorious sunset at about 4-30pm the other afternoon as a storm was rolling in and the sky grew darker yet this intense red and orange sunset appeared out from behind the darkness. It was truly gorgeous. Look Mum, take a photo of the bewdiful sky as he said on the way home from kindy. I think he might be a sky gazer like his Mummy. I used to spend hours as a young child staring at the sky, you know making shapes out of the clouds. And I love laying down and staring at a sky lit with stars on a clear night. I did manage to snap a few rather bad quality photos on my iPhone as Blake begged me to take a photo of the 'bewdiful sky'. You see he was in the car with me the other day when I took a photo of the rainbows. So I'm sure he thinks its just something that Mummy does now. Very naughty to even be taking photos whilst driving but I assure you I didn't take my eyes off the road. Hence the poor quality.
I'm also grateful for answers. See post below. I've battled with a bad back for yeas and years now as I had a fall on rocks when I was about 12/13 years old. But ever since I had my youngest it has gotten quite a lot worse and the last twelve months have been unbearable. It's been a LONG process to get here. I've tried everything. Acupuncture, Physiotherapy, Chiro, Hydrotherapy, all types of massage, yoga, meditation. You name it I've done it. Admit idly some things have definitely given me temporary relief but not for long. I've had x-rays, CT scans and two MRIs to finally discover that my herniated disc in L4/5 is unfortunately not going to get better and surgery is my only option. To cut a very long story short I've gone from specialist to specialist from November to now. Meanwhile going through a marriage separation, moving house, my oldest son starting school and in incredible amounts of pain with terrible sciatica and been dosed up on ridiculous amounts of pain killers I finally came to this Wednesday just gone. I met with the Neurosurgeon who'll be doing my operation - a micro discectomy. And finally I have answers. I'm now officially on the waiting list and I'll be having my operation within 4-10 weeks. So I'm very grateful to finally have an answer. Hallelujah!!
