Foto Pherrets

(My nephew’s funky monkey. April 2006.)

This is a lame post, although I do enjoy the funky monkey. I had to fall back on one of those daily meme websites for a quick idea for a post. Today’s savior: Foto Pherrets. The theme: Toy. While the funky monkey is probably more of a companion than a toy, it was the first thing I came across while doing a quick search of my photos.

If I could’ve taken a photo of my camera, I would have. It’s a toy I get a lot of pleasure from lately.

The MRI results are in. The long and short of it: I have arthritis, not usually seen in someone my age (gee, that makes me feel better, doc) and a disc protrusion at the L4-L5 level that is leaning hard on that sciatic nerve.

The doc recommends surgery. I disagree (and so do most of the recent studies). I’ll find a back specialist or someone of the sort once we move. I’m thinking I’d like to find someone who has a holistic approach (because, you know, I’m such a hippy). In the meantime, I have a handful of prescriptions to fill and keep me going.

Back to work. Moving Day is coming up fast.

My doctor says that I have a malformed public-duty gland and a natural deficiency in moral fiber, and that I am therefore excused from saving Universes. ~Douglas Adams
