This is a photo of the 1st Tattoo, that I got in April of 2007. It is placed on my lower Back, and the only time it hurt (because of the Pinched Nerve in my Lower Spine), was when she was Tattooing the Red Cross (which was placed directly on my Spine). The Black Filigree didn't hurt at all. I could hear the Tattoo machine running, and I could feel pressure on my skin, but no pain!! Which is why I thought that the Tattoo on my Calf (done the next year) wouldn't hurt either. Wrong!!!!! LOL It hurt like (h***)! Three hours of pure pain! Oh well, live and learn!
Well, not too much happening here right now. I have been taking my new RX Celebrex for Arthritis in my Neck for a few days now. It appears to be working. As I said in prior posts, my Neck has been killing me now for 6 wks and 3 days. But I have noticed that the pain is slowly diminishing, thank god!! It still hurts, but for the most part, is now bearable. So I am hopeful that within a week to 2 weeks, it will no longer hurt me.....
Other than that, I don't have too much to say. Walt and I went to the new Doctor we were referred to by Carolyn (Walt's ex-wife), last week here in Reno, and this Doctor has scheduled Walt for a Colonoscopy (hee hee...I have already had 2, so I know what to expect, and as far as I am concerned, the only part to be afraid of, is the "Prep" crap that you have to drink the day before!!). He had been making sure that he didn't have one before this, but she advised him to get it done! And, she had us get some major Blood Work done. She is testing me for about twice what she is testing Walt for. One of the things that we are looking for in my Blood Work, is Rheumatoid Arthritis....we are hopeful that my Arthritis is just the normal everyday kind, and NOT Rheumatoid Arthritis. But I do have some of the symptoms of it, and my past Blood Work had shown RH Factors in it. So to be safe, we are re-checking for it.
So other than that....all's well here. However, we are expecting the RV Park here to fill up in the next day or two though, with RVs towing some really cool cars (some have already arrived, but they are keeping their cars inside their Trailer carriers), as Reno has an annual gathering called Hot August Nights, which brings hundreds of Cool Cars! I am hopeful to get a few photos of some of them before they take them into downtown Reno to show. If I do, I will post some later. Here is a couple of websites that discuss the event this year (they are expecting about 800,000 people!!) Hot August Nights Reno-Sparks, and Hot August Nights Reno-Tahoe. So this should be exciting!! However, Walt and I will probably try to stay as far away as we can get though....just think of the traffic???
In closing, I found this Survey on Ms M's (Fatscapades Of a Redheaded Chick) blog, and thought it was great. So here it is!!
