Quiet and cautious optimism

Things have changed since my last post (which was a total downer).

My doctor has pulled a magic trick out of his hat and changed my pain management regiment slightly by adding something new… and it appears to be working.  I’m cautiously optimistic.

I was able to go to the 2009 Spokane Motorcycle show yesterday, walk around for a couple of hours, and come home with very little pain.  This is just short of amazing!

Now, if I could just get off all the opiates… there’s a chance that I could get off of my ass and back to work!

Time will tell if the new regiment is going to be sufficient to make that happen, but I’ve got a glimmer of hope on the horizon… and that’s more than I’ve had for a damn long time!

Wish me luck!

    optimism and hope are awesome things to have. I always believed that good things come to those who wait. (ummm I’m still waiting lol) But it looks as if your good thing has come. Yay for you. It makes me happy when I hear that someone that is pain all the time gets some kind of relief. Sending happy thoughts your way.

    Wow, not to get too excited for you just yet, but that seems to be a step in the right direction at least. Hopefully they can get you to a spot where at least you can go out on a regular basis. We’re thinking about you man and hoping for a good outcome sooner rather than later.
