The epidural went well. We found the hospital and the area where we were to be. The nurses and doctors were very nice and efficient. However by the time we went for his epidural his knee was bothering him because he had been walking in such a way that he put strain on it to avoid back pain. So we came home from the procedure and iced it good. We did the same thing again today and it seems to be helping. He was able to shower and do the exercises the physical therapist gave him so we are going to call today a victory.
We have decided that we will see a chiropractor for some help as well. Marvin is very limited in the pain meds he can take so we are going to look for some help with pain management. So we have a plan. Thanks so much for all the prayers and the good wishes. It has been a hard three weeks and frankly I am ready to see some forward progress. Hopefully we are moving in the right direction.
