Cramped Kitchen Reno House & Home
Saturday, August 6, 2011
Thank you to everyone who's emailed me demanding to know why it's been so quiet here at The Hedge. Previous excuses used have beeen a new job, a new puppy & now I can add a sick husband to that list. Yep I've had to dig out the old white uniform & morph into Nurse Millie - MOTH has been laid low with a major back injury. A nasty acute flare up of a chronic problem has caused huge upheaval in the house. He's tried everything over the past few weeks to give him some relief, but to no avail. A last ditch interventional procedure last week using radiofrequency ablation to blast the nerves around the offending lumbar discs was an abject failure.
Work has come to a grinding halt while he does the round of Adelaide medicos seeking a cure. The Neurosurgeon broke the news to him on Wednesday that due to the dodgy nature of the facet joints around the injured discs he is not a candidate for a spinal fusion. Oh joy.
We do have one glimmer of hope though & that's the magical world of Pilates. Under sufferance, he dragged himself off to a class a couple of weeks ago & discovered immediate benefits. Although Darren Vizer the star of the video I've posted is a Melbourne pracititioner, I love his moves. Thanks DV for inspiring poor MOTH, do you do house calls?
Oh & dear Hedgies, how are things in your world, I'd love to hear, I'm desperate for some light relief.
