Gosh I sure miss all of you!....Just had to do a short post to thank you all for coming by here and checking on me and leaving me encouraging get well wishes. As always you are the best.

Thank goodness I made it through the three MRI’s on Monday. My doctor finally got back with me on the results and she mentioned me having to see a neurosurgeon as soon as she could get an appointment set up. It seems that I have really done it this time. I have a Compression Fracture between the 3rd and 4th vertebrae and several bulging disc.

So now it is waiting again for another appointment to see what the neurosurgeon suggest for my relief.

Miss you very much and hope you are doing well! Let me know how each of you are and what you have been doing. Take care and Sweet Dreams

Love to all

Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, We've got to get you better. Now what? Surgery? Bless your little heart. I wish there was something I could do.

Tina Eudora said...

Lots of prayers and positive energy sent to your home from mine! Tina xo

Cousin B said...

What are they going to do for that? I really hope you don't have to have surgery....Take care and keep us posted!

Cherrie said...

Oh Hon that sounds so painful! My thoughts and prayers are with you!



Garden of Egan said...

Awww hon I'm so sorry! At least now you have answers and can get it taken care of.

I'll be praying for you.

Hi Girlfriend!
Sorry to hear your diagnosis. I was really hoping we'd be able to get together and go dancing some time soon! For that, I'd get to TX! Now, we'll have to put that on the back burner and you'll have a reason to get well asap!

I sure hope this doctor you're going to is giving you "Big Girl" medicine for the pain. I personally like the kind that lets you "sorta/kinda" know there is still pain, but you don't give a hoot. And it's great if the meds come in a "holiday dee-canter".

I'm so glad you broke out to write a post. I'm looking forward to you getting back to "normal" and writing those posts I love so well.

The silver lining in this cloud is that the "boys" have to do the yard work for you, and you don't have to clean up the old homestead right now. Perhaps you can spend a little time with Ms. Pearl planning some little act of vengeance on the ex and his bimbo? -ahem- or some such thing...

Take care and I'll be looking for the carrier pigeon with your next missive. Get better, for God's sake. I miss you!

Susan said...

Ouch! I trust you're being properly looked after? Fed well and pampered a bit?
I'm glad your boys are taking care of the yard for you.
I hope Tinkerbell isn't beating your face in the morning!
Get well soon

Julie Harward said... can throw us some cures can't it?! Well, I hope you can get to the bottom of it and get it taken care of! Take care of you and don't hurt it worse! Hope the weather is nice there and you can at least get out and try to enjoy some of it! Come say hi :D

bunny said...

Oh man...this doesn't sound good but I'm sure your in good hands...meaning Dr. and family.
Looks like you'll be home for a while my dear...make the best of it and get some more bytes...we miss you.

Oh dear, Maggie, you poor thing. I know that you must be in tremendous pain. Why don't you have somebody read the blogs to you so that you can rest while you're hearing what's going on in blogworld? Thoughts and prayers and I'll keep checking to see how you are, my friend!

joanne said...

Oh Maggie,
you sure did do it this time! I have a compression fracture at l4 from a car accident and it was treated with bed-rest and pain meds but I don't know about the bulding discs~~can they just put them back in place without surgery? Geez girl, I'm thinking of you. I'm not busy, should I come stay for awhile and help you out?? would love it! Take care my sweet friend. jj

bikim said...

OH! so sorry to hear that! but think it could have been worst!! besides you're a strong woman and that is not enough to break you!! you know what they say!: if it doesn't kil you, it makes you stronger! and that's how you'll come out of all this! trust me!
take care of yourself now and try to be happy!

Arkansas Patti said...

Oh good grief, that is not what one wants to hear. I hope you have a good doctor who is not knife happy. Think you may have a long haul though and hope you have lots of help.
I have heriniated disks which can be lived with but the fracture will take time.
Do exactly as you are told and be well soon.
Got you in my prayers.

The White Farmhouse said...

Oh you poor dear! I cannot even imagine the amount of pain that you are in. My dad did the same thing quite a few years ago. I do hope that you are on the road to recovery.

Shelly said...

Dang it Maggie! You DID do it this time! Hope at least the headaches are better!

I thought of you when I shaved my Legs Sunday! Sorry, hope the laughing doesn't hurt so bad now!

Love you missy, you'd best get better soon!
Hugs and Pieces

The French Bear said...

Oh Maggie, it doesn't sound good even with a name to it!!! I do hope you are getting lots of rest and time to ease yourself back into the routine!!! It is a tough one when your back hurts!
That doctor better have good news!!!

Kim said...

Maggie, Maggie!! You need to rest and take care of yourself. I know that rest and relaxation is not in your nature but its time. Let people take care of you for awhile so you can heal properly.
Positive thoughts going your way - always!

Lisalulu said...

man o man you are really making the rounds at the DR offices. Hopefully THIS will make them sit up and take notice.. please know there are SO many of us wishing you God speed and a quick PAINFREE recovery.. we all love you and admire your spirit.

Debby said...

Oh sorry Maggie. I hope they will fix you up soon. You are like Humpty Dumpty, minus the figure. Pain is the pits. PLease feel better soon. ((((HUGS))))

Nezzy said...

Oh sweetie, you've gone went and done it now. I'm gonna pray that you can get help from therapy before surgery. Bless your heart girl.
Know your in my prayers...ya can't keep a good woman down.

Your probably as antsy as I am when it comes to takin' it easy. I went down in my back and caught a nasty bug last week...I was down a whole not me. Then as I was starting to feel better and get back in the swing of thing...I broke out with the worse case of shingles I've ever had, needless to say I'm down this week and oh, my yard is fast becoming a jungle.{{{{SIGH}}}

Take care sister and know I'm prayin' hard for you girl. God bless!!! :o)

Pat said...


I know that's not what you wanted to hear...however remember you can't keep a good woman down. Sending prayers and good wishes your way.

Kissed by an Angel said...

Dearest Maggie, no wonder you are in such pain!!! Now everyone knows what wrong, perhaps you can get the right treatment!!! Get well soon!!!

cindy said...

Oh Maggie!! bless your heart. Once good thing though, we might receive more comical blogs from you with all the time you'll have on your hands!!

Take care-

Mumsy said...

Oh, sweet Maggie!

I am so sorry to hear you have more waiting to see if something can be done to give you some relief from the awful pain. You are still in my prayers dear one and you will continue to be. I hope the wait will not be a long one and the neurosurgeon will be able to help you.

My heart aches for you. Hugs

Dan said...


I sure hope you get better really soon! I am thinking of you and praying for you!


myletterstoemily said...

we are praying for a swift recovery!

Karen Whittal said...

New on your blog, but hope all is well, and that God is faithful to his promise of healing, when two or more people ask it in his name.

artangel said...

Well Maggie, looking on the positive side, at least now they know they know what's causing the problem they're hopefully a lot nearer to fixing it for you! Sending lots of healing energy and love and hugs for you xxx

Diane at Crafty Passions said...

That is so darn terrible!!
I am so sorry for you no wonder your in pain !
Let and I mean let everyone pamper and spoil you.
Were getting sunshine here and I love it!
Thinking of you and sending healing vibes

Keep your chin up.

~hippo hugs~

Ivanhoe said...

No wonder you are in so much pain, Mags! They have a new thing I just heard about. They can inflate a baloon which will raise the fractured bone and inject material that will fill the crack. Hope you are a good candidate for this procedure. Will keep my toes and fingers crossed for you! :)

yaya said...

Maggie, thanks so much for visiting my blog! Yours is sooo cute...but I'm really sorry you are in so much pain. I work in surgery (here's a prayer hoping you don't have to visit one) and my hubby is a Chiropractor so I have a small understanding of patients in pain. Hang in there and hopefully you can get some treatment and be up and walking/running soon. You seem like a really fun gal! Get well soon!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Hey everyone thanks for all the love you have been sending me. Waited all day for the them to call about seeing the neuro doc but no luck.
Had to get some new pain meds because the ones I have are just not doing it.
Christi came in this afternoon from Austin to stay with me again and I am so glad to have her here.
It's always feels better to have someone you love around you...thats why I blog so I can have you here too.

Diana said...

Take care of yourself!

Taos Sunflower said...

OUCH! Sorry to hear that. Glad your spirits are still in fine shape!!

Melissa Miller said...

Maggie oh my goodness ouch! I am praying for your full recovery sweet friend.

Have a blessed day. ~Melissa ;)

My Grama's Soul said...

Oh golly Maggie.....I can only imagine how you are feeling!

Please, please get more than one opinion, though, if someone suggests cutting you open. This is serious stuff.

HJugs to you,


Sares said...

Oh no Maggie. There is nothing worse than back pain. I most heartily sympathize with you. Hang in there!

Sharon said...

Maggie I will pray that you will soon be feeling better. I know that back pain is no fun.
Please take care and hope to see you back here soon.

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble said...


Since this is my line of work, it does sound like surgery may be a strong possiblity so please be prepared for that. If not, maybe a back brace for several weeks and here, it would almost mean a stay in an acute Rehab department for therapy. This is where I work as a nurse.
I know how upsetting this is to you but I learned a very long time ago that what is meant to be , will be and that everything happens for a reason. I know you may not see it right now but I have always found that in time, all becomes clear as to why certain things happen. Please do what I have learned to do....Kiss it up to God and place it in his hands and he will take care of you!


bj said...

I am so hoping your back gets better SOON.
I know it must be so painful. I've never had back trouble but Mr. Sweet has.
Thinking of you,
