Update about life at the Cano House

This is just an update for everyone. After my back appointment I went in to have my cortizon shot on Friday and things were going well and I was even laughing during the procedure until "Oh Crap" he hit my nerve, my sciatic nerve. Yeah that's the nerve that has been hurting me for the last 2 months. Boy, can we say PAINFUL!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, I'm feeling much better now. My back is still a little sore but for the most part I feel good. And the best news is, no more pinched nerve all day long. That I am so happy about. I still do have sciatic nerve pain at night when I lay in bed but I've learned to just deal with that. Well that's all about my back.

So, now on to the other news. We are under contract for our house. Yeah that's right we are selling our house. For those that don't know Luis joined the Navy and we have found a buyer for our house. Our tenitive closing date is Aug. 3rd. I don't think we will have any problems keeping this date because we have the time to get things done. The whole thing has just been amazing and defiantly an answer to our prayers. I'll have to post that story later cuz it's a little late and I need to get to bed. But anyway, we are so grateful for the Lord's blessings in our life right now and are excited that we have been so blessed.

My Back Appoinment

Well, yesterday we went to the back specialist to find out what the options were for my back. I was told that I have one disc that is bulged in two different spots (on the right and left side) which pinches my sciatic nerve. Not too fun but such is my luck. Today we are going back to get a shot of cortizon in my back. Hopefully this will relieve some of the pain and I can get back to normal. I'm just hoping for enough relief to actually walk normal (so I don't look like an 80 year old walking in a 30 year old body). Here's to hoping!!! Wish me luck and I'll update you all later!!

Kaitlin's Birthday!

Here's our Birthday Girl Kaitlin Abigail Cano!! She had her Brithday Party on Saturday May 2nd. She wasn't feeling very good that day. She defiantly wasn't herself. She only wanted me to hold her and she didn't even want her cupcake. I felt really bad for her.
Here is the cake that Abuelita made for Kaitlin. As you can see she really wasn't feeling good. She's not even smiling for the pictures. She has such a cute smile I'm sad we didn't get it on camera.
Our Family Picture for the day.
She was a little excited for her presents. I was trying to get her to take her own presents out of the bags. She did ok for a first timer. I just can't believe that she is one now. I went visiting teaching the other day and my friend mentioned, "Just think it was last year at this time that you were miserable and ready to get her out." I said, "Yeah that's crazy that a year later I still feel miserable with my back." I got the results of my MRI last week on Friday. My doctor told me that I have two ruptured discs in my lower back. I'm going to see a Back Specialist to find out what we can do to get some relief.
And the last picture! Kaitlin loves baths so we got her a toy boat with sea animals. She was having a fun time playing with the boat. I think if she felt better she would be having some fun with it in the bathtub too. All in all it was a good day. We had a fun time at the party. Kaitlin did very well for not feeling very good. She got sicker that night and had the flu on her actual birthday. We'll have to do something later on when she is feeling herself again. Maybe she'll actully eat a cupcake and we can get a picture of it stuffed in her face. That's the picture I really wanted to be on here.
