Today (ok, yesterday by now) I took Mr. Pooh to a doctor's appointment. He's had a herniated disc in his back and now it's flared up. Last week, it started causing numb spots in various areas below his waist. Not all over, just in patches.

So he had an epidural. The place we went to was very thorough, with x-rays and fluro-dye to ensure accuracy of the medicine. Hopefully, it will work on the nerve root and stop the pain signals.

I spent the rest of the day at his house, waiting on him hand and foot. Food, drinks, meds, ice packs... it sounds like a lot, but I don't mind doing it. He wanted me to sleep over, but I said no, since I will probably stay over this weekend since we have our niece's christening on Sunday. Then I can drive us
