The reason it is too much time is NOW it seems forever before we close and head out. There is so much to get done and we are so far behind with Dan being laid up.
We left here this a.m. to head to Manistique to a chiropractor that was highly recommended to us. Dan is tired of waiting on the VA to do any thing (doesn't even have an MRI till 10/5), and our insurance does not cover this type of a Dr.
We found out a lot of things that no one had ever mentioned before because we can't believe some of these things went undetected on previous x-rays and MRIs.
Dan had a lot of back X rays taken today. I can't remember the name of the bone in the pelvic area, but you could see a crack in it. Doc said that most time this crack closes shut with bone but in Dan's case it did not. That isn't what is causing his problems, but it was interesting to know.
Even an untrained person like Dan or me could see the HUGE difference in his tilt in his pelvis to the right...which is due to his leg being shorter than the other. Due to all of this he has a curve at the end of his tailbone. And he 4 or 5 disc issues. Long story short, it is no wonder he walks like he does and has been in so much pain.
So after so many "manipulations" and other things (got the pamphlet in the truck but it is raining so I can't give you the name of the program the Dr uses), he told Dan that he'd like to see him again on Friday. Dan feels better already. If I can just convince him he CANNOT do the things he use to do!
Tomorrow I have my labs done. We always hope that my white blood count will come up to even a 2 but last time it was 1.2. I will have my cholesterol and all of that checked as well, so I won't have those results for about a week (the dr will have them by Wednesday but it always takes a week for me to find out!). On Wednesday I have the ultra sound on the veins in my neck and the MRI on my neck. I'm not sure if I hope something shows up or not. I sure don't want surgery! It would be nice if it is something that at home PT might help. Time will tell!!
I took my camera on our drive with us today, but it was raining and couldn't get any fall color shots along the lake shore (Lake Michigan). The colors are changing quickly and I think after this weekend we'll be on the downside of peak.
But I've got a couple of photos to share with you...
