Third Time\’s the Charm?

My body hurts…

and not because of prolotherapy

I realized I never updated my blog after having to reschedule AGAIN.  24 hours before I was supposed to have prolo, it was still blizzarding.  I looked up Mishawaka’s news channels, and the city was under a state of emergency and the whole city was asked not to drive.  Since I knew I had to give 24 hours notice for cancellations, I called and left a message asking what my options were. A little while later the lady who does the scheduling called from her home because the office was shut down and said I could come Monday at 1:00 instead.  I tried really, really, REALLY hard for Friday but no such luck.  So I will now have prolo on Monday…if the stars are aligned.

Well, I am supposed to be having prolotherapy done in an hour, but after much thought and many checks of the weather channel, Brad and I decided it would be best to reschedule because of the blizzard that is coming.  Although the storm is not supposed to hit us until tonight, it is supposed to hit Mishawaka this afternoon around the time we would have been driving home.  

Talk about bummed.  I have been counting down the days until prolo.  And now (being the worry wart that I am) I am stressing that the roads won’t be okay by Thursday…I tried to ask for a Friday appointment but Friday was booked.  So my fingers are crossed for clear roads and safe travels by Thursday morning at 10:00. 

Prolotherapy in Mishawaka

Monday afternoon Brad and I headed to Mishawaka, IN for my three doctors appointments that were scheduled for Tuesday.  We made a last minute decision to go Monday for a few reasons…The weather was supposed to be nasty Tuesday morning…I knew that three appointments and a 2 1/2 hour drive home would already kick my behind…And we got a room at the Comfort Inn for 50 bucks. 

We pretended we were there only for pleasure and enjoyed a nice dinner Monday night at Papa Vino’s (first time there) and quick trip to Meijers since I forgot socks, which was followed by watching The Bachelor (Brad was oh so thrilled :)

Tuesday morning we headed to my first appointment with Dr. Cantieri.  Dr. Cantieri is an osteopathic doctor who specializes in complex pain problems.
