John's appointment moved up

I haven't done an entry since Monday.  I've been in pain all week and have not been able to do it.  Some days my back just spasms out of control bringing excrutiating pain.  I saw a physical therapist three times this week.  Yesterday I finally got a therapist that really knew what she was talking about.  She taught me how to fight against the spasms, by moving into them when they occur.  Gee, this makes such a huge difference when they grip me suddenly!  Why didn't the other therapists show me this?  So even though I hurt, those big spasms don't make me scream anymore.

What else is new?  Yesterday kind of brought a surprise.  Dr. Claxton's nurse called from Hershey and said that after John's biopsy slides went to cytogenetics at the Mayo Clinic, that Dr. Claxton has decided he wants to see John on Nov. 17 instead of waiting till Dec. 1.  Apparently something serious was found upon analysis of the slides.  Wow, I wonder what it could be?  She is of course not allowed to tell us, but phoned us to come in on Nov. 17 as Dr. Claxton had asked her to.  So it looks like John is on the fast track to get the transplant...

On to a much lighter note, tonight I am going to sit at the computer and attend the Vivi Awards.  Later on today I will be doing an entry to show you what I am going to wear to the Vivis tonight.  I can't say much, other than I will be wearing red, lol!  I also need to write my speech this afternoon so I can put it in my journal tomorrow.  I know it won't be an acceptance one, but that doesn't matter.  I love all of you so much in J-Land and I want to thank you.  I love, love, love you guys!  

Okay, talk at ya'll soon.  Love, Krissy :)

    Krissy so glad about the therapist  showing you how to fight against the spasms...Hope John is on the fast track.....
    best not wear red Krissy we wont be able to see you when you take the walk down RED CARPET to accept .....Ally

  5. Krissy, I'm so sorry, I forgot to ask how you were feeling from your back when we were chatting last night. Again, you are amazing in that you didn't mention how you were feeling; just your concern over John.

    Glad you found a therapist that worked for you and gave you practical steps on how to reduce the spasms.

    I'm sure you look smashing in red!


  6. I'm glad the new technique(?) for controlling your pain is working.  Ya know, I would personally scare away the pain for you if I could, Krissy.  I would grab those spasms and swat them away... shooo, shooo, go away pain!
    Looking forward to your Vivi apparel in your next entry.  I'm off now to get a manicure and have my hair done for the celebration.
    Best to you and John,

  7. Good luck with the awards, and most importantly with Johns appointment.  glad you got a way to fight the spasms when they occur.


  8. Krissy sorry about your back:( Good luck tonight:) Hope everything goes ok at the doc appt.

    I hope you start feeling better soon, and you can start doing the normal things that you love to do.  I will also keep John in my thoughts and prayers.

  10. I`m so sorry to hear that your back is still giving you so much trouble Krissy.  Now you have a good therapist, hopefully it will improve quickly.  As for the VIVI`s I`m sorry but I can`t attend as I`ll be asleep, being in the UK, but I`ll be thinking of you all in your best party! :-)

  12. I am so sorry you have been in such pain, Krissy!  Love and prayers for you and John!


  13. Gentle hugs to you and John!!
    Good luck at the awards tonight!!
    Linda :)

  14. Hope all goes well at the doc appt.

  15. Hope your back spasms will not be extended too long.   The medication I take daily keeps me just sedated enough that my back does not become severly tense and painful.   John's appointment being moved up must be giving you both reason for apprehension.   May the upcoming transplant be successful and elimate the cancer.   mark
