Lots of updates to come! First, a glance at the week before we left (we were home for two weeks!)

Saturday. We did a lot of cleaning...that afternoon my right arm was kind of numb, then began to hurt a lot.

Sunday. Went to church in lots of pain. I was sustained as Young Women's 1st Counselor. Cool!

Monday. Pain.

Tuesday. More pain. Tried ibuprofen, no avail.

Wednesday. Even more pain. It hurts to use my arm (which is mostly bothersome because I am right-handed). I saw a PA at the DMU Clinic who recommended an MRI, but referred me to an OMM specialist in the Clinic.

Thursday. Still pain. Met with the specialist - one of Scott's professors. He was great! We both learned a lot. Dr. recommended the MRI and x-rays. Did the x-rays, and found a bone spur in my neck.

Friday. Pain. Had the MRI to check for nerve issues in my neck. I went to work for about four hours, then we headed to Utah! Our flight went through Denver, directly into Provo. Awesome, right? We recommend Frontier Airlines. They give you warm cookies during the flight. Mmm.

So, not sure what's up with my arm. It still hurts a fair amount and the MRI didn't show any issues in my neck. My doctor is on vacation for another week, so I'll just relax until he gets back so we can set up a new game plan. Pretty exciting stuff!
