Update on Nannie

Yesterday at 2:40 p.m. she received another spinal injection and experienced a great deal of pain late in the evening. GW stayed with her for the remainder of the afternoon to be sure that she had no adverse reactions, did not bend or lift. He took care of Scooter, who is there to take care of Nannie. Go figure. (Scooter somehow got an infection, quit eating, got very lethargic, had a bad blood test result, and is taking meds three times a day.)
Anyway, she had a rough evening, taking lots of pain meds, but today is better. Boo talked to her and heard some of the nursing home stories again, but her symptoms are manageable today, her legs are not hurting, and her back pain is responding to the regular pain meds. She has decided to not take the newer sample med again since it made her so sleepy. Prayers always appreciated.
