Soma relief

I’m not sure where I heard this, but Disney supposedly inflates the estimated wait times on their amusement park rides. Makes sense, right? I’ll bet leads to fewer disappointments.

The day of Cheryl’s surgery, I remember the doctor saying her pain should start feeling better by the following Monday. As I’ve mentioned before, it didn’t. In fact it got a little worse.

Cheryl had her first, post-op follow-up with the doc yesterday, where it was revealed it’s not unusual for the pain to go a couple weeks. They apparently don’t become concerned unless the pain isn’t getting better after three (weeks).

Me thinks they should have said that in the first place.

Whip out your Webster’s doc. Look up trust.

The better drugs arrived at the pharmacy today, so that’s something.

  1. Hi John

    This explains much. Please have her not move too much now (while the bones are mending/melding); I wish she’d wear a neck brace!
    It will slowly improve, but the allograft technique used is not as quick to heal as the autograft. But on the upside, with autograft there would be pains in TWO places!
    Dear Cheryl, please follow the Drs orders to the letter of the law :-D
    and go slowly.

    I’m praying for the Whole family … (ooops, my bad — you’re the Kauffman Family!!!)

    Chin up!

Give the gift of words.
