I’ve never experienced nerve pain before. I’ve heard it described as a searing pain that radiates out from the affected area. That’s about as well as I could describe it. Sleep is difficult at best. I awoke with pain so severe that the only thing I could do is moan and bite my blanket. I did the same thing in labor, but that pain was acceptable.

THIS pain is getting on my nerves (pardon the pun). My doctor is available afternoon at 2:30 and Erick promises to be home around noon, so that will help. Right now, I’ve asked the girls to play with blocks in the learning room and Lucy is napping (thankfully!) on the couch. I just want to cry.
