Health Issues

I normally don't go into a lot about personal, non-sewing related information at casa Danvillegirl.  I have had my little wrist issue for a couple of weeks now, and today I can say it is getting better. 

My DH has had some sciatic nerve pain for some time now (over two months) with lower back pain and loss of feeling in his left leg.  For a man with a pain tolerance factor of -10, it takes him forever to go see his doctor.  He finally did so about two weeks ago and he was referred to an orthopedic physician specializing in back pain issues.  Last weekend he completed a MRI which we took results of that to the doctor yesterday. 

Long story short-he has to have surgery for a herniated disc.  Amazingly it is done as outpatient surgery and he goes home same day.  He will not be able to drive or travel for about 10 days.  He will be out of work for over 6 weeks.

So life has taken us in another direction.  We will get through this, though household budget does take a hit.  I am thankful for my fabric and pattern collection as I will be modifying my sewing spending habit for a period of time. 

Now knowing what the health issue is and the prognosis for him, he and l both are able to get some focus around casa Danvillegirl.


  1. Glad that your wrist is getting better - I want you to be able to sew! Also glad that your husband's issue is fixable. I know, thank God for the stash.

  2. I hope that the surgery alleviates your DH back pain! And I'm glad to hear that your wrist is doing better...finally this is the reason I collect fabric/patterns/notions against the day when I won't have the funds or means to purchase more. I will always be able to go to the closet, pick something out and sew.

    Your DH will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. I'm sorry your DH has health issues, and hope they are resolved easily and completely. Take care of yourself (and your poor wrist) so that you will be able to be the caretaker while your DH recouperates.

  4. It sure can be stressful when the ones we love are having health troubles. I do pray your DH has a successful surgery and that your wrist continues to get better! Take care!

  5. Sorry to hear that! Wishing your DH a speedy recovery, and hoping your wrist continues to feel better!

  6. I'll keep you both in my prayers, Linda. Here's to a speedy recovery!

  7. I'm glad to know your DH is getting better, I'll keep you both in my prayers

  8. Linda,
    I am so sorry for your husband.
    Don't worry too much about the surgery though. My sistern IL underwent the same after having suffered like mad since last March and when she woke up after the surgery all the pain had disappeared completely.
    Take care
