I am going to go to the doctors to get a complete physical. For about 2 months now, I haven't been able to go to sleep at night...It has been nights that I am still awake when Bill gets up to go to work. I have tried the reading a book,watching T.V., watching a boring movie,laying with the lights out and listening to the crickets out in the field behind our house, etc.....Nothing works! When I finally get to sleep, I do sleep and thank heavens that Brittany is here so she can watch Madison for me or there wouldn't be any sleep for me. (la la moo!) So hopefully soon I can get in and find out why I can't get to sleep!

Well I had the dreaded nerve test done this week...I hate having those done. My arm is still hurting from where they had to push the needles into my arm though the muscles into the nerves and then zap them with electricity,not a happy camper after that! So from the results of the test,it all stems from my neck problems. So they determined that I will be put on home traction, which means I get to wear this nice neck brace that has a water bag attached to it and I sit for 15 minutes twice a day for 2 weeks then it goes to 30 minutes. I will do this for 2 months and if it doesn't work or gets worse, they will send me to a Surgeon and will do surgery on my neck to fix the problem. Now you ask what is wrong with my neck? To put it in people terms not Doctors language, I have deteriorating disks on my right side in my neck, so therefore the fluid doesn't flow correctly which causes the muscle and nerves to put my right arm and leg to sleep or have serve pain. Which I will be glad to live without the pain medication and the pain to where I can't sleep at night, so hopefully something will work out.
