a little too much information

Friday I took Aaron to a doctor's appointment for his back. which is still an ongoing issue.
we thought this would be a fairly standard OMM appointment, as per usual, it turned out not to be.
since this has been such a serious and chronic problem, the doctor suggested trying something new.
Aaron went ahead and tried prolotherapy which basically means he got a bunch of shots in the back.

just so you know, I have never in my life seen a needle this big.
I was quite sure that I was not going to make it. the entire time I thought I might pass right out.
but like the amazing girlfriend I am [who should most certainly have a ring on it] I stood by him.
yeah so that was a great surprise for a Friday morning. he, of course, ended up staying home from work.
he has also been in a ton of pain all weekend. meaning, no activities have occurred regardless of the weather.
I just hope this works in the long run. I can give up one weekend now if it helps him for many in the future.

switching gears to something more positive and a lot more exciting! do you know what this week is?
I go to Chicago this week with Breanna! I really can't even wait to get out of boring ol' Michigan.
we are leaving on Sunday so I am probably getting ahead of myself with excitement... but whatever.
the weather looks great for right now so lets hope that doesn't change too much in the next 7-10 days.
I just have to suffer through some extra school work this week before we go... should be great.

hope you all have an amazing Monday. I must go tend to my fitness. see you tomorrow!

  2. Needles don't get me all worked but if it its as big as you make it sound, no thank you!! ;) have fun in Chicago!!

  3. Geez! I sure wouldn't have been able to hang around. Well maybe I could if I just din't look. Needles creep me out!
