Watch me closely now

There goes my non-narcotic route for pain management. I can't take the Ultram with Coumadin, so that leaves me with a wide gap. I can take Tylenol, put heat on my back and try to bear with it. If I can't, then I have Darvocet. Lots and lots of Darvocet. Scott can't believe they even filled something that big. I believe his words were 'Nice knowing you. Give me a call when you get out of rehab.' *laugh*

Either way, I'm resigned to the fact that I'll be on Coumadin and some sort of pain management for life. No amount of bitching will fix that, so the only thing to do is be positive and make the most of things.

The pictures of the LG are just tearing my heart apart, they are so cute. GS - what do we still need to do to 'officially' make that boy my Godson, so I can spoil him rotton help guide him in life? :)

I'm so psyched that on Thursday I test for my first red stripe in Tae Kwon Do. Despite all of the hardships that have been put in front of me the last year or so, I am continuing on my path to Black Belt. When I get my red belt this year (*fingers crossed*) that will make me an assistant instructor. WOOT!

Tomorrow, Matthew is going for his green belt, and Michael is going for his first blue stripe. I hope they do well, as we've been working really hard on their forms. They really had been getting lax, so we had to whip them into shape.

Not sure on the why behind it, but Darvocet is apparently preferred to Vicodin for long-term use. While working out a schedule for extractions (I'm getting new teeth this year), my dentist said he was more comfortable prescribing Darvocet for the number of extractions I'm having this year. *shrugs*

Generally speaking, the rehab units at behavioral health facilities are way nicer than the other units. At Green Oaks, they've got en suite bathrooms; the high-functioning mental health unit had communal bathrooms. (I overnighted in the rehab unit during the hold prior to admission.)
